    Experienced Proofreader, Legal Writer, English Teacher

    United Kingdom - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    I am a 25 year old Scottish law graduate. My legal education is invaluable to me when I am proofreading as it has given me the fine attention to detail skills required to accurately pinpoint mistakes in writing. My writing experience enables me to grasp a better picture of what the writer is trying to portray when I am proofreading which in turn allows me to easily make the writing flow. I have wide-ranging proofreading experience, across a variety of topics and formats. I have also successfully completed several legal writing and website content projects. I have a TEFL course (120 hours) from Chiang Mai University. I have experience teaching both children and adults. I also have online teaching experience, both through a company and private students. I am passionate about teaching English and find it immensely rewarding.

    Malia Hill

    Expert Writer, Researcher and Communications Pro

    United States

    Finally! A fast, professional writer and researcher who won't leave you second-guessing content or grammar. I have more than ten years of experience, in everything from academic essays to website content. I've even written and produced television ads! But my greatest skill lies in taking complex or difficult concepts and translating them for a general audience. (It must be the law degree--it gave me research know-how and a dislike for jargon and obfuscation.) The bottom line? I know how to write effectively and persuasively. I can provide research services that you can be confident in. And I can give you the quality work you're looking for at a great price.

    Sarah S.

    Legal research, Article writing

    United States - Tests: 4

    Thank you for taking an interest in my profile. I graduated law school in 2008 with a goal of becoming a civil litigator, possibly in family law, although I was very interested in criminal and immigration laws, too. I was willing to enter any legal discipline when I experienced a near fatal stroke that left me unable to walk or speak clearly. None of my memories or cognition were compromised. I am able to do anything online, but I cannot speak clearly over the telephone. If an employer prefers to speak with me over the phone I can talk, but regular phone contact with clients is not possible. I am willing to work through the night if you require a fast turnaround time, but ordinarily I require about three days depending on the complexity of the issue. Working at home is easiest for me because I cannot drive or do many of the other things that are required to work outside of the home. I have recently decided I have not just lost everything; I have a great education and mind and I owe it to myself to use it. Just because I cannot pace back and forth giving a closing statement does not mean I should do nothing. My dreams are less grand than they were before, I want to be proud of my work and I want my employers to be satisfied. I will work as hard as I can because I want to begin working as soon as possible and cultivate long term relationships where possible with employers. I have unrivaled honesty and integrity; I am very proud of those qualities so I will never submit work that I am not proud to call my own.
