    My name is Robin Jones and I am a native English speaker from the UK. I am also a native Welsh speaker and have an intermediate level of French and Arabic. I graduated with a first-class honours degree from the University of Cambridge in 2013. I stayed on in Cambridge during my postgraduate year to complete an MPhil in English literature and graduated a distinction in 2014. Following my graduation I was fortunate enough to have my postgraduate dissertation published in a Cambridge University journal on medieval studies. (See links below) Since I graduated from Cambridge I have been working as a freelance writer and editor on a wide variety of projects. I also teach English as a foreign language and am a CELTA qualified language instructor with an excellent grasp of grammar. My work as a language Instructor has not only given me valuable classroom experience in developing rapport with students whilst helping them reach their goals, but also ample practice of correcting and editing the work of non-native English speakers. As well as my work as a writer, editor and language instructor, I also have over ten years of experience working as a private tutor for Oxbridge Applications, a company which specialises in guiding students through the application and interview process for Oxford and Cambridge universities. As such, I have edited and proofread hundreds of cover letters and essays from applicants to top-tier universities. In addition to this I have also worked on hundreds of dissertations, essays and research projects for students at both the undergraduate and post-graduate levels. I also have extensive experience of editing, rewriting and reinterpreting non-academic texts on a variety of subjects. For example, I recently proofread and edited the entire website content for a Beirut-based consulting firm - Euromena Consulting (www. euromenaconsulting.com). Further examples of my writing work include over ten 150-page courses that I have written for the Academy of Excellence, a provider of online educational programs. The topics have ranged from language-based courses such as English literature, English language, English grammar, Welsh for beginners and Intermediate Welsh to subjects based on the humanities including Anthropology, Music Theory, Travel and Tourism,, Religious Studies and Classical Studies. In the past I have also worked as a journalist for a group of newspapers owned by NWN Media in North Wales and the Midlands. Whilst workingq there I was a part of the online editorial team that set up and launched www. leaderlive.co.uk. My factual journalistic work has also appeared in the paper numerous times.

    Hi there! Hello everyone, and attention future employers: You've just come across a passionate creative with writing skills careering down the freeway from her buzzing fingertips. A constant learner and lover of creativity able and willing to provide written and visual skills to you. Having written for various publications and myself, I have the capacity to chage tone, research topics, and fulfill a project to deadline. On top of my writing skills, I can edit videos, create posters, and curate social media - all of which I've done in secure jobs in the past and am now looking to do freelance! With me, you've gained a confident, competent, and enthusiastic worker in written and visual mediums. I am 100% open to discuss long- and short-form projects and willing to negotiate on details and pricing. Furthermore, although I am more than capable of researching a subject (what with my first-class degree and all), my interests are where I truly shine. I have the memory of an elephant and the excitability of a hummingbird; but no worries, mate, because I can control those energies into creating endlessly readable prose for you. If you're lucky enough to need someone to write about films (current and/or 1960s Italian cinema), photography, fashion, figure skating, and above all CATS (the animal, not the brain-melting musical), then boy do you have the right candidate right in front of you! What are you waiting for?! Drop me a line and we can discuss your needs. Many thanks for reading.
