    Your go-to writer, proofreader, and transcriptionist

    Philippines - Last active: 13 days ago - Tests: 11 - Portfolio: 2

    Don't you just abhor misplaced apostrophes, superfluous commas, and unprofessional typos? Which is more devastating: the feeling that there are simply way too few compulsive editors in the world to fix everyone else's careless grammatical errors or the troubling notion that perhaps no one cares anymore? If you need professional, original writing from a reliable, no-nonsense provider, look no further. I guarantee high-quality work promptly delivered and specially created to meet your project specifications. I aim to provide quality work to clients in the areas of writing and editing, data entry, and business services. I have a general background of financial accounting, statistics, and have been exposed to annual reports. As a business graduate, I am familiar with reports and papers involving business jargon and enjoy proofreading such documents. Regardless of the type of work, I am a responsible, conscientious, and reliable provider.
