    Nitpicking with a Purpose ... now certified!

    Jamaica - Portfolio: 4

    There's a reason most of my Elance clients would recommend me, and many have hired me more than once! The reason is simple: they get high quality work at an affordable rate, within a reasonable time frame. A look at my lifetime earnings through Elance (currently over US$25,000) will confirm these claims. I'm a published novelist, and until recently, I worked freelance while maintaining a full-time job as a college instructor. I've taught Spanish, Communications, Caribbean Studies, Foundation English and Academic Writing, and have degrees in Spanish American Literature (M. Phil.) and Spanish Education (B.Ed.). I am a certified Copy Editor and an experienced proofreader, and I've recently decided to become a full-time freelancer. My Elance projects include: *Copyediting/proofreading *Transcription *Data entry/Project categorisation *Web-based research *Quiz-writing *Grading of English papers (university level) I have also had two long-term, part-time, telecommuting projects through Elance, both in administrative services. I currently work in project categorization for a company in England (June 2013 - present), and previously I worked as an administrative assistant for a group of language schools in South America (July 2008 - October 2010). The tenure of these projects (over two years each) is a testimony of my commitment and the level of service I provide. I'm highly ethical and committed to quality service, and I specialize in improving the quality of my clients' work.

    Expert Writer

    United States - Portfolio: 46

    I deliver high quality content on time at an affordable price. My work is done efficiently and effectively, and I meet clients' needs. I have been freelance writing for years, and I have decided to begin using eLance to manage my working relationships. I am by far the hardest person I know to work for, sometimes so much that I hate being my own boss and having to answer to myself. I take accountability to the next level. If you are looking for someone who is intrinsically motivated to succeed, self-disciplined, and hard working, look no further. I am that red penned English teacher we all dreaded writing for in school. I write well, I know eduction, and I am extremely passionate about doing things right. I think the most productive working relationships are those with clear expectations. By taking the time to get to know what the client wants and expects, productivity becomes efficient and effective. I work hard at achieving this when I am chosen to do any job.
