Service Description

Don't let the Ph.D. intimidate you. I am approachable and work with writers of all levels. As a former Education and Family Programming Director, I even have experience working with children and remedial learners. I am always happy to answer any and all questions you may have about my edits and suggestions. I also provide explanations with my edits to help you learn and grow as a writer. The final choice, however, is always up to you: I work in "Track Changes" to afford you the freedom to accept or reject each edit.

School applications? I take your aspirations seriously. It's my way of planting seeds for the global future. I have helped students gain admission to Harvard and MIT. If you are an international student, I am particularly good at helping you meet the word limits on your essays. And since I have many years' experience at top universities, I have keen insight into how best to craft your essays.

I can work in Word, Pages, Adobe Acrobat (pdf), and InDesign CS5.

Other Languages: Hebrew, Classical Greek, Aramaic

***Proviso: I edit academic materials and provide counseling, tutoring, and advice. Because I have high standards for academic integrity, I will not ghostwrite papers for the fulfillment of academic or professional requirements.
