Writing isn't always easy, and it isn't always fun. I love it, however. With over 2 years experience proofreading, editing, and tutoring international and native speakers attending university, I am very good at quickly editing for grammar and superficial mistakes. I also have extensive experience editing for content and streamlining information into cohesive, logical, concise documents. My editing experience covers resumes, applications, research papers, creative writing, and more. I am experienced and published as a writer of short stories and poetry. If you need another set of eyes on your document or assistance creating a work of words, I am more than willing to assist you. Posted rate is my average fee and is flexible.
