* In-house Assistant Editor and Proofreader of a peer-reviewed, linguistic journal

I have edited or ghostwritten books and chapters published by John Knox Press, Simcha Publishing, Wexford House, and many others. I am skilled in editing and proofreading business, legal, and accounting materials, history, and literature; both fiction and nonfiction; see specific topics below.
Don't let the Ph.D. intimidate you. I am approachable and work with writers of all levels. As an 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. 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.
