    Aron Eidelman

    Copy Editor | Proofreader | Transcriptionist | DJ | Audio Editor

    United States - Last active: 21 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 3

    Over the past five years, I have written and edited for a number of small tech startups, as well as Apple. I have also developed and implemented curriculum for various overseas schools. As an editor and proofreader, I have produced high-quality work for vast audiences on deadlines often shorter than 24 hours. One keynote I edited for Apple reached over 8000 conference attendees—a mere six hours after I had submitted it. As a curriculum developer, I designed, edited, and tested over 3000 pages of History and ELA material for grades four through ten. I also had the chance to teach for two years in order to get a sense of implementation. During my time as a teacher, I developed a knack for transcription, which I would use to help students identify errors in speech. I now work part time for three different transcription services. My turnaround time is less than a day per hour of audio, and I can guarantee 99% accuracy. I have been a DJ for over a decade and have used Ableton for mixing and mastering for the past eight years. I have also completed Dubspot's audio production seminar. I typically avoid hourly work, so if your project can be set at a fixed price, you will likely get a much better deal than the rate I've quoted. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Academic Writer and Editor

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 9

    I am an energetic English MA student focused on Rhetoric and Composition. I write for a variety of audiences and can edit documents from any field. Published in English and in Spanish, my research capabilities are above average and my work ethic is second to none! I teach college composition and am very familiar with appealing to particular audiences. My undergraduate work spanned history, sociology, anthropology, psychology, gender studies, Latin American studies, English, Spanish, and geology. Because of my familiarity with these different disciplines, I am proficient in a range of citation styles. I worked as a writing tutor for two years and helped students to restructure and re-envision their papers to be the most effective papers possible. I can do the same with your project! I am proficient in Microsoft Office and have enough computer knowledge to confidently navigate pretty much any program. I have written and published a number of my own research papers, analysis papers, annotated bibliographies, and conference presentations.
