    Good day! I have a PhD in philosophy, I have successfully copy-edited over 200 texts, and I am a native English speaker. I excel in helping writers overcome obstacles to achieve their publishing goals. Writing can be challenging. Word choice, sentence structure, and thematic consistency can make the difference between a publisher accepting or rejecting your work. I can assist in this regard. I have edited numerous academic papers in both the sciences and humanities. I also have several publications in accredited journals and I have given numerous conference talks. I completed my PhD in under three years and I am a native English speaker. I consider myself to be focused and professional with a natural affinity for academic dialogue and argumentation. In my spare time, I like to read and cycle (but not at the same time). Although my area of expertise is in academic writing, I am more than capable of writing, proofreading, and copy-editing non-academic texts. If you need a precise, punctual, and thorough writer, proofreader, copy editor, or reviewer, then I can help.

    Hello there! I passed my 2nd Master's degree in Adolescent studies!! And I'm thrilled. My 1st Masters, was in Psychology with a research focus on substance abuse, addiction, and neurocognitive effects in young adults. I am neither especially clever nor especially gifted, I am only very, very curious (Albert Einstein) and this curiosity has driven me into beautiful places I had no idea existed. I have a Bachelor of Social Sciences Degree majoring in Psychology and Law and an Honour's degree in Psychology. I tutor first to third-year Psychology, university students. I am also a research assistant for several busy people in academic spheres and beyond. In addition to my engagement in academic work, I also enjoy writing in a more relaxed yet informative manner. I write blogs and articles in various niches but mainly in Psychology and wellness. My academic research skills are transferable and allow me to write informative and factually correct yet easy-to-understand blogs. Over the last few years, I have engaged in several projects that have helped me develop some skills that you could be looking for. I am capable of (but not limited to): 1. Psychology tutoring, writing, proofreading and editing. 2. Research and writing ( I am in academia; therefore, my research and writing skills are up to date and every day is another chance for me to improve them). 4. Non-academic writing (This has always been a passion. It is something I enjoy doing and I am quite good at. I am also well versed with SEO writing) 5. Administration support 6. English-Shona translation ( I am fluent in both languages) I strongly believe that we will never maximize the human brain's capacity, so I am always willing and eager to learn. I will bring the best value I possibly can to your project, and in an unfortunate case where my skills can't meet what you're looking for, I will be honest and let you know in time. Everything happens for a reason, I guess we both know why you are on my profile 😉 Tell me more about your project, and I hope I can provide the services you are looking for. I hope to hear from you soon!

    I am a qualified biologist with a passion for writing, reading and teaching. Education is of the utmost importance in my life - not for the potential remunerations but rather for the self-improvement that follows it.

I am hoping to use this platform to network and find companies that can foster my potential. I am willing to learn and will gladly accept jobs outside my area of expertise. I do not believe that any job is too big or too little. I complete tasks efficiently and adhere to deadlines.

    I am a life coach specializing in coaching those who desire the balance between achieving goals while experiencing peace and contentment. I can also assist if you have had a spiritual awakening or are navigating major life transitions (divorce, terminal illness, loss or midlife crisis) These experiences provide a rich environment for radical personal transformation and the attainment of peace, and it can feel overwhelming to navigate them on your own without guidance. We are here for the human experience, and we can tap into profound peace and wisdom and live in peace. My coaching seeks to reconnect you with the experience of being a human being using your full potential and mastering yourself. In terms of my authority in life coaching, life experience came before the life coaching qualifications. I experienced a significant spiritual awakening and faced many obstacles after that as my perspective shifted radically. I emerged whole after divorce, bankruptcy, and a "dark night of the soul'. At the end of it all, I realized that I wanted to work with people going through something similar and pursued NLP and hypnotherapy qualifications which supplemented my nursing qualification in mental health and provided me with a framework to support my clients in their journeys. I use mindfulness, mindset strategy, reflection, contemplation, meditation, affirmations, mantras and various other methods in my coaching sessions and will only use what works for you and what you are comfortable with. In working with me, I can guide you to feel grounded again, rediscovering your purpose, formulating and working towards goals that are aligned with the person you are after your transformation, and rebuilding perspective to move forward with as you navigate your life. I look forward to connecting with you.

    My skills as an academic coach, reviewer, and editor will facilitate a highly readable and grammatically correct report about the research conducted and the conclusions reached as well as be a good fit for the institution and/or journal requirements. A background in conducting research and teaching research methodology as well as strong analytical abilities and attention to detail means I will alert you content issues that could strengthen your document prior to finalizing the edit. In this way, the report you submit presents your very best efforts for academic evaluation. I have edited over 700 masters/doctoral dissertations as well as academic papers for copy and content since 2005 to date; students/academics were located on all over the globe and included second-language English speakers. I am well-versed in MLA, Harvard, APA, APS, and Chicago academic styles and offer copy and content editing options on a wide variety of topics including psychology, social development, education and leadership. In the past, I conducted corporate social research (archival and attitudinal), wrote four theses of my own in partial fulfilment (Honors in Psychology, master's in clinical psychology) and complete fulfilment (master's in research psychology and Doctor of Philosophy in Psychology), taught methodology to undergraduate and post-graduate students at Rhodes University, and supervised master's dissertations. I have also published papers in peer-reviewed journals, both of which were accepted without further revisions required and write blogs for my own websites regularly. Please note that I respectfully decline offers to write for students—I am a developmental, review, and copy editor, not a ghost writer: I teach people how to write more eloquently in their own voices.

    I am passionate about all types of writing and research. For me, job satisfaction comes from an idea or message that is communicated and shared with others in a way that is understandable and enriching. My research and writing skills are honed by the high standards of academic philosophy. These skills allow me to work with complex concepts and communicate them in an effective and understandable way, whether for an academic or general reader. Furthermore, writing academic projects has taught me a very high level of editing and proofreading which is a fundamental requirement of academic writing. I bring this approach to all my writing projects. Extensive experience as a tutor and teaching assistant in essay writing and philosophy has given me strong abilities to identify errors and correct them effectively. Part of correcting errors is explaining in a constructive manner how to prevent them from happening again, which is a core element of of my teaching method. Working in the corporate environment as a researcher and product developer taught me how to work well under pressure, meet deadlines and have a fast sense of problem solving without sacrificing quality of work.
