    While I have just recently earned a degree in Psychology, I've spent most of my years as a Call Center Professional teaching Communication and Customer Care Skills to non-native English speakers. I have been writing all my life and have also been proofreading for a missionary from a local church who sends monthly newsletters to ministry partners. I also have an extensive background in teaching English as a Second Language to Koreans. I have a depth of knowledge in the English Vocabulary with reference to all its aspects (Orthography or the word in its written form, Phonology or words in their spoken form, Reference or the word's meaning, Semantics or the concept behind the word paired with reference, Register or the appropriacy of use for a specific word, Collocation or the word's lexical neighbours, Syntax or the word's grammatical function, Morphology or the word's parts, and Association or the word and its relation to another). I am able to write both technical and creative materials (Blogs, Online and Print Listings, Training Materials, Christian-related Literature, Announcements, Advertisements and Company Circulars). I'm adept at both the rules and usage of business writing techniques and literary devices. The extent of my skills and previous work experience has also allowed me to improve Resumes as well as write several and varying job-specific Letters of Intent for me and others. They have, so far, helped me and my clients significantly with the job search. It'd be my pleasure to re-write your resume and hope that in doing such, help you gain attention and favour from your prospective employers. I am ecstatic over the prospect of writing interesting articles, improving your resume with cover letters and also being given the privilege of working for and with you on future undertakings.
