Service Description

My name is Renee and I hold an MA in English Education from New York University. I have been editing and proofreading for many years and have worked on a wide variety of styles from academic texts to creative writing.

I am also a former English teacher for academically gifted students at a competitive NYC high school. In addition to courses in literature and writing, I taught communications, public speaking, and theatre arts.

My passion lies in words, language, and teaching and my love of editing and coaching new writers is a reflection of that. Whether you need a sentence-level edit, a complete editorial overhaul, or someone to turn to for advice and support during the writing process, I'm here for you. My grammar skills are superb, I have a sharp eye for detail, and a keen ear for style and voice.

I offer you meticulous, efficient service that will exceed your expectations. I'm fast, reliable, conscientious, and ready to help you add eloquence and polish to your words.

Let me take your project to the next level and make it sparkle!
