I am a conscientious, personable, and experienced worker. I have a Ph.D. in English and nearly 15 years of experience as a teacher and writer. For the past 7 years, I have worked as a writer of reading comprehension passages for standardized tests. This job has afforded me the opportunity to learn and write about a variety of topics--everything from astrophysics to Filipino history.

As an educator, I taught at the undergraduate level for 9 years and at the secondary school level for 2 years. I primarily taught English literature and composition, but have also tutored individuals in GED math and science. As a private tutor, I have helped high school students polish their college application essays and undergraduates draft and revise papers for a wide variety of classes. I also have experience helping clients with resumes and cover letters.

My strengths as an editor are in academic manuscripts, grant proposals, and journal articles, but I am equally comfortable working with essays, fiction, or technical writing. I am incredibly meticulous with grammar and am familiar with every major citation style.

I enjoy working with authors at every stage of the writing process--from development to proofreading. I want to help you make your writing as lucid, engaging, and refined as it possibly can be.

I can tutor you or your child in English, Literature, Writing, SAT/ACT/GRE/GED Language and Reading. I can also help with editing essays, resumes, cover letters, or other writing.
