Presently a director of an education company, I have many years experience as an English teacher, most recently of international students. I have a Masters of Education, a BA in English, some law study, and a Graduate Diploma of TESOL. I have travelled widely, particularly in Asia, and have a broad range of interests. In regards to writing, my favorite type of writing is poetry but it is not in my list of skills because who would want to write poetry for money? Nonetheless, poetry is a good training ground for any kind of writing because it teaches flexibility of technique and word use. For any other type of writing, I can work to instructions and meet deadlines. I am a hard-nosed editor and can shape up a piece quickly with a sharp awareness of what the writer 'is going for.' I work towards customer satisfaction.
