    Before I begin, I want to indicate that my hourly rate for writing is $8 an hour, but for editing and proofreading I charge $5 per hour. The profile page does not give one a chance to indicate different prices for different services. For the past four years, I’ve been working remotely for a variety of local and international organizations, doing web content writing on a very wide range of topics, editing, SEO writing/editing, proofreading, nonfiction ghostwriting, video scriptwriting, translations, and social research consulting—including assistance with study designs, research methodologies, monitoring and evaluation, data analysis, and academic/scientific writing. My first language is English, and I am rather minutely focused on correct spelling, grammar, syntax, punctuation, creativity, and logical flow that is easy for the reader to follow. I am furthermore professionally fluent and can translate to and from English, Afrikaans, Dutch, and Flemish. I have considerable skills in research. My first fifteen to twenty years in employment have been in research—for university institutes, non-profit organizations, market research companies, and research consulting services. A big part of this work involved analysis, writing, editing, proofreading, and publication, and I currently act as an editor and proofreader for three international academic journals. That is not to say that I am just an academic, I have my nose firmly in pop culture and general consumption literature and media, and have acted as an SEO writer/editor and general editor and proofreader for social media campaigns (like producing short clickbait snippets) or writing short- and long-form articles to add to client websites on particular products or campaigns. I am a fast reader and a quick study. I have a master’s degree in Development Studies from the University of Johannesburg which I obtained in 2013. This discipline is concerned with social-to-market interactions, markets and trade, employment, economic participation, inequality, poverty alleviation, education, healthcare, social mobility, information management, and communication, amongst other issues. Apart from my devotion to these matters, I have a wide variety of interests and read as much as humanly possible. During my time working remotely, I’ve had to market myself as more than just a researcher and academic by highlighting the skills I already have. I had to move into content creation, content curation, and editing—not only for language and grammar, but to make the subject matter, on any topic, more robust, attractive, and engaging. I have had to learn SEO writing and editing skills and principles at breakneck speed and have worked extensively in WordPress and in an AI-driven SEO tool called Surfer. I even ventured into scriptwriting for YouTube channels on personal finance, stock markets, travel, and cuisine! I am very perceptive, highly intuitive, and an experienced methodologist, advisor, manager, and mentor in all subject matter related to the social sciences and humanities, as well as the English language and literature. As a completely home-based worker, I have developed a high level of self-discipline, time management, and organizational skills, as well as a deep understanding of a broad array of technological tools to allow for remote work arrangements. I am, of course, also completely fluent with the MS Office suite of applications, Open Office, and a variety of online tools such as Slack, Discord, Asana, Bootcamp, Google Workspace, and ClickUp. Thank you for your time in reading my profile! Kind regards, Lilo F. du Toit
