Hello potential client: I am a versatile freelancer with over twenty years of academic research, writing, and editing experience. My work has been published in academic journals and books, as well as more popular magazines. I pride myself in providing quality work – no matter the job – to all of my clients. My background as a teacher at the university level has given me a unique perspective to examine academic writing, which will be beneficial to you as a client.
I earned a PhD in history from the University of Memphis (2012), writing my dissertation on dynastic change in Late Period ancient Egypt (728-331 BC). I also have a MA from the University of Memphis in ancient Egyptian art history, and a BA in history from Minnesota State, Mankato. Although my historical passion is in the ancient world, I have studied nearly every period of human history. As a historical expert, I will provide you with key insight and research into whatever topic assigned, accessing a variety of source materials to complete the project.
Due to my background in ancient Egyptian history, I have extensively utilized a number of languages, modern and ancient, in my research and writing. During graduate school, I took four years of formal coursework in ancient Egyptian languages, focusing primarily on the Middle Egyptian form of the language, but am also familiar with the Late Egyptian form and have an elementary understanding of Coptic. This knowledge can be utilized by you the client in a number of ways, from course preparation to original research. My knowledge of ancient Egyptian can also be used in some more “creative” ways, including writing modern names, jokes, and any number of fun things one can think of to write Egyptian. I can also read modern German, French, and Spanish, which is useful to keep abreast of recent academic work from around the world in a given field.
My experience in academia, and now on this platform, has allowed me the chance to edit and proof-read hundreds of term papers, theses, dissertations, book chapters, and journal articles. As a former student, I know how important it is to produce a well-written paper to not only get a good grade in your class, but also to use that paper as a springboard to further your academic career. Since I am currently a writer and researcher, I also know how important it is to keep your name in the field by producing work that is publishable in peer reviewed publications. I have been through the process and know what those publications expect from their writers. Although my background is in history, I have helped edit and proof-read papers from scores of different backgrounds – from computer science to biology and from economics to anthropology.
Over the course of teaching for ten years at the university level, I acquired experience in a number of areas that you can utilize. I have extensive experience grading papers and using rubrics, writing course material, and creating my own lectures using Microsoft PowerPoint. I have also studied various pedagogical theories and practices.
My teaching experience also gave me the opportunity to become a better public speaker. I have given hundreds of hours of lectures in the classroom and have presented my research at regional, national, and international academic conferences. This experience, along with helping a number of clients on this platform craft speeches, has allowed me to become a top tier speech writer. I have written and edited speeches for awards ceremonies, business presentations, and academic forums, demonstrating that my abilities are varied and diverse.
Finally, once I have helped you put together an award winning paper or presentation, I will help you create or edit an excellent letter and resume/CV to go with it. I will help you write an application letter that will help you land that assistantship or fellowship, and I can also help you with cover letters when it is time to start job hunting.
I look forward to hearing from you!
