I'll make your writing more concise and edit for grammatical and conventional errors. I've worked for years with ESL students and can specifically edit and give tips on nuances in the English language.
My passion is helping others tell their stories and share their ideas through writing. I have edited all types of writing as a peer editor while working through my Master's and in my 17 years of teaching in high-school English classrooms. I've also been a professional email writer for a retail company, consistently exceeding their expectations for client communication.
Because helping others with their writing is my passion, I edit well and edit quickly. I'll eagerly follow any client's specifications and am available 7 days a week. I'm located in the Eastern Time Zone and typically start my day pretty early, and I'm happy to stay up late to ensure all documents are not only returned by the deadline, but they are edited to the highest of standards.

Greetings Scholars, Professionals, Novelists, and Students,
Greetings Scholars, Professionals, Novelists, and Students,
I have over 20 years of experience spotting and correcting grammatical errors, improving word choice, and crafting well-written arguments in order to articulate the author's intended meaning in business documents, student assignments, and competitive compositions. Additionally, as a seasoned professor, I have nearly a decade of experience revising and editing student essays, theses, and dissertations. APA style is my specialty, yet I also have a cultivated aptitude in both Chicago and MLA formatting.
A special skill of mine is that I am well versed in the street vernacular. I will help you retain your style while correcting the grammatical issues in order to help you reach your desired audience. This fund of knowledge might be especially useful for urban fiction and creative writing. I have edited a novel and a poetry book that are both currently in press and available on Amazon. I have successfully secured funding through my competitive grant writing ability within the non-profit sector.
I have a proficiency in reading, writing, and speaking Spanish and can easily spot common errors for ESL clients. I also have edited several journal articles for scholars in China. I have achieved 14 competitive awards based on merit and scholarship in empirical research, conference presentations, and honorarium work. I look forward to bringing your projects to the polished and professional final product!
