Writing, Editing, and Proofreading Expert Will Polish Your Work

Do you need a seasoned professional with a Master’s Degree in Language Arts to expertly create polished text or edit and proofread your written material? Your project will be efficiently and masterfully polished to your complete satisfaction. My four California teaching credentials, Master of Arts in Language Arts, 20+ years’ experience as a classroom Resource Specialist, Reading Specialist, Multi-Media Specialist, and Board Certified Educational Therapist in private practice, set me apart from other writers, proofreaders and editors. With a deep understanding of the structure of the English language and an entire career focused on implementing reading and writing programs, your writing project will be precise and successful. Excellent customer attention, efficient time-management, self-motivation, focus on detail and organization, plus a strong work ethic were hallmarks of my 14 years running all aspects of a private practice in educational therapy. As a freelance member of your team, my attention will be 100% on completing your project with excellence, on time, and within budget. I can assure your projects will succeed by offering: CONTENT WRITING - specializing in SEO, blog articles, documents, reports, product descriptions, and summarizing content. Years of proven writing experience include authoring extensive language arts curriculum, reading and writing tests, writing manuals, action plans, parent and teacher training materials, non-profit fundraising materials, and real estate web content. This experience provides you with a seasoned freelancer who is fully committed to completing your project successfully and professionally. A lifetime of international travel has given me the gift of interacting with people of many cultures and socio-economic backgrounds. If appropriate to the project, your written content can be enhanced by my love and understanding of Mexican culture and history, reading, international horseback treks, organic foods and nutrition, gardening, fashion, interior design, and Urban Sketching. You can be certain your writing will not only be error-free, but clear, engaging, understandable, and in your specific point of view, whether it be business, informal, conversational, persuasive or informative. Writing will be delivered to you in an intermediate, then final draft for your approval via your choice of Microsoft Word or Mac Pages. I am happy to collaborate with you to make sure you’re getting the results you want. EDITING - Your writing project will be completed with meticulous professional attention to sentence structure, pacing, phrasing, language flow, clarity, conciseness, effective word choice, structural precision, and tone/voice appropriate to your audience. Your project will benefit from my 20+ years of multi-faceted business and academic editing. PROOFREADING - With a focus on detail, I provide comprehensive proofreading for errors in grammar, punctuation, spelling, tense agreement, factual errors, and typos. Examples of my successful editing and proofreading projects include a published novel, real estate rental contracts, professional documents, essays, articles, website pages, resumes, blog content, business correspondence, and curriculum materials. You will have the choice of receiving changes or corrections via Microsoft Word Track Changes or Pages Track Changes. In 14 years of private practice, my consistent waiting list from year to year confirmed that my expert skills and experience were in constant demand. My professional skills and qualifications can help your business grow, allowing you freed up time to focus on other aspects of your work.
