Throughout my entire academic career I have often proofread a number of professional applications and academic papers.These include university personal statements, professional business letters and master's degree level essays. Additionally,I have had previous experience as a volunteer teaching assistant, whereby I have taught children aged 11 to 15 basic mathematics.

    Editor, Writer, FR-EN Translator

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 10

    My facility with words derives from a love of literature and a background in French, teaching English, and editing. Over the past 7 years, I've had the opportunity to work with a variety of texts, from academic papers to blogs to web content to novels, and various style guides, including AP, APA, MLA, and Chicago. Though my heart lies in fiction, I'm equally at home with non-fiction; my particular interest areas include sociology, anthropology, psychology, environmental issues, healthy living, nutrition, women's studies, feminist theory, queer theory, critical theory, and critical race theory. However, I welcome all types of texts. Let me help make your pen indeed mightier than the sword, whether it is simply proofreading for small errors or copy editing/line editing to improve structure, flow, word choice, clarity, coherence, and the like. With me, your texts and documents are in good hands.

    United States - Last active: 5 days ago

    I am a professional writer and social science researcher living in New Orleans, Louisiana. I specialize in editing, proofreading, writing, and research. I have an M.A. in Anthropology from Columbia Univ., as well as a B.A. in Honors English from San Diego State Univ.

As an anthropologist, I am well versed in cross-cultural perspectives, enabling me to write for diverse audiences.

On the creative side, I love to work with horror, science fiction, and fantasy, though I am certainly open to other genres. I am skilled at breaking down and paraphrasing highly technical language, which is advantageous for technical and science writing. In all areas, I have a meticulous editorial eye for grammar, spelling, formatting, and content.

    Tech-savvy sociologist

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago

    I have a Ph.D. in Sociology, and I enjoy the opportunity to keep my writing and research skills sharp by working with others on projects that can take advantage of my academic background. My concentrations are in qualitative research methods, social movements, and sociology of emotions; a recent lit-review project has also given me a broad background in Network theory. My passion is helping other conduct great research! Besides my academic training, my work history and general computer/video game geek-ery has resulted in me being well-versed in most common software applications and a smorgasbord of random skills (Google Adwords intergration, web development/design, UI principals, etc.). The way I usually put it is that no matter the setting, I'm the one everyone goes to with their computer problems. I also worked for a patent lawyer for a few years, so I'm pretty familiar with US patent law, particularly post-grant litigation (and I helped write reexam arguments).

    Sabine C.

    Expert for translations, editing and ghostwriting

    United Kingdom - Last active: 3 days ago

    I am a German native speaker, but have been living in Kent/England for 25 years. I graduated from Bonn University in 1984 with an MA-equivalent (First State Exam) after studying English, French and German language and literature and teaching first-year-students during my final terms. I spent the 1978/9 winter term at Edinburgh University where I did a course about systemic grammar and the teaching of literature. I learned that the interpretation of poetry can be based on a matter-of-fact analysis of the structure and how it deviates from ordinary language. This made teaching poetry much easier and clearer, accessible even to sceptics who insisted that interpreting poetry was a matter of taste. After 18 months at the Wiesbaden Teacher Training College I got my teaching qualification (Second State Exam)and decided to teach abroad. With my experience in teaching A-level German I feel well equipped to tackle most translations from English to German or vice versa.
