    Writing/Lesson Planning/Educator and More

    United States - Portfolio: 2

    I am a retired schoolteacher with 25 years of experience specializing in middle school science and math, but have experience in all subject areas. I am particular and careful about what needs to be in print, and I also know how to present information to readers in an easy-to-understand format. I was a lead teacher for my district training other educators in the benefits of hands-on learning and other content areas related to effective teaching in the classroom. The skills I have lend themselves to many other jobs unrelated to education. You will not be disappointed by my work.

    The Message Therapist

    Australia - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 3

    I'm an award-winning writer with two decades' experience in film, television, radio and internet communications. I have an insatiable passion for words; for combining them to entertain, inform and, though I hate to admit it since my father was a car salesman and I wanted to be a black sheep, to sell stuff. With a background in television advertising, I'm particularly skilled in promotional copy, creative strategy and branding. Having written short films, novels and documentaries, I have an impressive track record in long-form writing. And having worked non-stop in the media for twenty years, I know how to deliver high-quality content in high-pressure situations. I'm also passionate about cats and board games, but that’s irrelevant and doesn't belong in my Upwork profile, especially not at the end where it's the last thing you’ll remember. Note to self, hire that scribe who likes cats and cards.
