Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $30

Never underestimate the power of clear and concise communication - whether in academic, business or personal life. I have been working for 10+ years as a
consultant, working to strengthen oral and written communication to ensure the effectiveness and power of ideas.

I have experience ranging from business and development proposals, PhD dissertations, company presentations, website and blogging, and copy editing.
Having worked in the financial industry for 4+ years, I am familiar with the banking and insurance industry. I have many years experience working with ESL students to improve the tone of their writing, as well as the understanding and integration of colloquialisms into their day-to-day communications.

Although I am new to this site, as part of TalkDocs Pro, I have a history of positive feedback and happy clients. I look forward to doing business with you and helping you maximize your communication potential.

Service Description

Isn't it frustrating to pay for a job well done and get the work back only to find it wasn't quite what you were looking for? I will take the time to clarify your specific needs and make sure that I understand your expectations so that you get exactly what you are looking for in regards to your project. I will give you detailed feedback so that you can learn as you go.

I do all of my editing and proofreading in Microsoft Word using the track changes feature, so that you can see my suggestions and accept/reject the changes as you deem appropriate. I will make notes and comments throughout the document - If I have questions to improve the readability and clarity of thought - I will ask them. You will end up having a polished and perfected project that hits the nail on the head - communicating exactly what you need to do in the most effective and concise way possible.

There are so many messages in our world today - we're inundated with information everywhere we go! Make sure that your words are not wasted. Don't leave people guessing or trying to interpret your intentions. Get it right the first time - that's what I'm here for!

Please note: I am competent in Microsoft Word, ranking in the top 5% on Elance!
