I have a passion for the English language and am eager to put my knowledge to use. I have a good grip on the basic rules of grammar and syntax. I am very comfortable working with computers and enjoy learning about new programs. When faced with a problem I don’t know about, I know exactly where to find the answer to it. I am very resourceful and work well in a team and individually.
