I am a university graduate with a bachelors degree in English and an honours degree in psychology. I also have a post-graduate certificate in education. As I am currently working with children on a part-time basis, I am looking for home-based admin and research work to supplement my income. I can work any amount of hours, I just need to be able to do it at night,on weekends or in the early morning if my other work requires me to use "normal" office hours! Therefore online assistance , data capture and research suits me perfectly!
