** In addition to my editing and instructional design work, I offer English/Spanish translation services for USD$0.06 per word. I'd be pleased to offer a sample page. I also regularly create high-quality voiceovers and have an in-home studio (Yeti mic) as well as access to a professional studio. Please ask for demo tracks, or I can do a cold reading audition for you.
— EDITING SERVICES —
I strive for nothing less than to amaze each client with the quality, thoroughness, and quickness of my work. I routinely exceed client expectations; I will perfect your writing but preserve your voice. I excel at finding and fixing grammar errors, typos, misused words, and more. I perform an in-depth review to account for clarity, structure, terminology, scholarly tone, concision, diction, and flow.
As a native American English speaker, I have experience in editing, proofreading, and copy editing of many types of writing, including but not limited to:
- academic papers, research papers, journal articles, thesis, dissertations, graduate admissions essays
- reports, proposals, business proposals, annual reports, marketing copy
- e-books, short stories, novels, anthologies, fiction and nonfiction books
- resumes, CVs, cover letters
- blog articles and websites
- screenplays, scripts
* Academic Editing *
With three advanced degrees of my own, I have worked with PhD, master's, and undergraduate students from around the world, including such countries as Mexico, Canada, Korea, Japan, China, Denmark, Norway, Holland, Colombia, Iran, and Germany. Accordingly, I have an extensive background editing work from both native-English language and ESL authors. I’ve worked with students in multiple fields, including advanced mathematics, architecture, business, education, history, human rights, law, media studies, medicine, pharmacology, philosophy, political science, psychology, public health, theology, and more. I am fluent in Chicago, AP, Turabian, APA, and other style guides.
* Textbook Editing *
I’ve worked with four publishing houses writing and editing textbooks—both student facing and teacher facing materials as well as reader books, primarily with content focused on learning English as a second language.
* Book Editing *
As an author, I'm sensitive to the writer's expression, and you won't find a more thorough eye for detail, structure, and consistency. I'll make sure your project is clear and cohesive from the start, that it maintains theme, plot and timelines, or that the opening to your book, article or webpage presents a tangible thesis that expands throughout the content. I can illuminate what you've written and make it more engaging.
— INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN SERVICES —
I am also an accomplished instructional designer who would welcome the opportunity to help you craft engaging, pedagogically sound learning materials for your students, employees, or customers. I specialize in helping schools, businesses, and consultants designing training course and learning products that get results. My methods rely on the latest research and best practices in instructional design and focus on creating online courses that will make a difference in the lives of your learners.
I hold a Master's degree in Curriculum Design and Educational Leadership with a focus in Educational Technology, and I have been both an online instructor and student. I also received a CELTA pass B from the University of Cambridge and have extensive experience in ESOL curriculum development and teaching.
With 10+ as an instructional designer and 5+ years of professional experience as a Learning and Development consultant, I have gained the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to complete instructional design and training and development tasks efficiently from start to finish. This includes online course and training design; learning management system design, development, and support; educational technology project management, implementation support, and strategic planning; and creating instructional materials.
I am an expert in creating learning materials that engage audiences. I can create learning curriculum and exercises. I work primarily in MSOffice, Prezi, PowerPoint, and Storyline. With these tools I am able to craft attractive presentations, multimedia, and tutorials. As a teacher, I’ve taught children from 4k-12, and I’ve taught adults as well, including designing and writing university level and corporate courses.
As you can see, I have experience in the design, development, and deployment of programs in the following areas: training and curriculum development, recruiting effectiveness, leadership development, performance management, on-boarding, employee engagement, and mentoring. I am flexible, versatile, and I leverage a diverse work experience to meet and surpass expectations. I aim to provide excellent client service, and I always maintain strict confidentiality.
