    English language teacher, editor, author

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 16

    Thank you for taking the time to check out my profile. I hope you will find that I am the right person for the job. I know that a big concern for many clients is the freelancer’s level of English. Rest assured, I am fluent. I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and lived there until I graduated from Maryville University in 2011. My degree is in middle level education with an emphasis in English language arts and literature. After graduation, I decided to teach students in Central Mexico and currently split my time between there and the United States. I have been working as a freelancer through oDesk, now Upwork, since 2011 and independently for several years before that. During my freelancing career, I have completed more jobs than I can possibly remember, covering a wide variety of topics and targeting a wide variety of audiences. The general areas in which I work are writing and editing, including rewriting, spinning, and content re-purposing. I specialize in creating and editing content that targets the following audiences: mothers, children, teachers, students, single women, medical patients, and home owners. Due to my work teaching non-native speakers, I excel at re-working and editing content created by speakers of other languages. As for the formats I write in or edit, I am open to most anything. I have written and edited product descriptions, product reviews, novels, short stories, children’s books, blog posts, website content, SEO articles, email campaigns, biographies, resumes, dictionary definitions, lesson plans, teacher training materials, catalogs, brochures, magazine profiles, taglines, social media posts, and more. I am always excited to try something new. Take some time to look through my portfolio items to get a better feel for my work and don’t be afraid to request a sample if you do not find what you are looking for. Thank you for your time and attention.
