I also conduct seminars on travel to France and various aspects of French culture. I have a B.A. In French and an M.Ed. in language instruction. I lived in France a full academic year and taught English at a French university. I travel frequently to France, and I organize and guide tours to France. I plan to run themed French tours and immersion trips in the near future. I do translation, via mail or email. I have done all kinds of translation projects and am always open to new projects. I can do a 24-hour turn-around, possibly earlier. I write children's picture books, both in French and in English.

When I was in high school I would get high marks on my papers. Most of the papers that I did were medical. I had to write a ton of of research papers for my senior year. It does not take me long to write unless the information is hard to find. I can usually get writing done in about half and hour to an hour. I check over my work before sending it, and also have someone else check it to make sure I did not miss anything. I can also make power points which I had to do a lot in my medical class in high school.

I am that annoying person who always finds and points out the errors in the daily paper. I tsk tsk grammar errors and generally delight in being a word nerd. I am looking for part-time work (20-35 hours a week). I am attempting to utilize my English Lit. degree from home during the evenings because I am currently raising the future generation during daylight hours. I would like to work every evening practicing my editing and/or writing skills. I've worked for a web design/publishing company proofreading print and web material for several years now. I’ve also edited thesis papers, essays, business flyers, resumes, business proposals, website information (in word program), and business cards. I'm also a fully certified elementary school teacher and early childhood educator. I am that loyal, dependable, friendly, efficient, capable employee that employers dream of.
