    Science and a love of writing!

    United States - Portfolio: 7

    If you are looking for someone with a diverse knowledge of the sciences, but also happens to have great writing skills--then we will get along great! I have a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences as well as an MS in Toxicology, which grew from an agricultural background in the animal sciences. I have studied many areas of the biomedical and environmental health sciences, including pulmonary, cardiovascular and heavy metal toxicology. My writing experience has evolved from those areas, but has also grown to include writing for educational science projects. I have a significant amount of experience in grant and manuscript preparations as well as science curriculum development at the middle and high school levels. I love writing about science topics in a way that makes it come alive for audiences of all skill levels and ages.

    Customized Translation and Editing Services

    Venezuela - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 2

    "I highly recommend Mohamad. He performed his task [...] with more care and efficiency than any other worker I have ever hired. He was proactive and understood instructions immediately [...]. He always submitted his work by the set deadline. When sent last-minute extra work towards the end of the project, he found imaginative ways to complete the additional workload quickly. Mohamad is fast, reliable, and remarkably thoughtful. [...] I am looking forward to continue collaborating with him in the future.” You're here because you (or your clients) are looking for translations that are "ready-to-publish". You hate working with mediocre translators that will end up costing you extra time and money, since their work will end up needing rounds of revisions. The testimonial I shared proves that you won't need to worry about the quality of my work, making me a valuable asset in your team.

    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.

    Susan Wright (CLU, ChFC, RHU, REBC,

    Insurance and Annuity Content Specialist

    United States - Portfolio: 74

    "Susan is an amazing writer, very fast, accurate, and reliable. She also knows the financial industry and its language, which is what we need. Thank you Susan!" "She is the insurance guru on Elance. You won't find anyone better..." "Susan exceeded all of my expectations! She is a professional and knows her subject matter. On time and on budget! I highly recommend her service to anyone looking for professional written material, especially in the financial / insurance field. I will use her again for my future projects." You are most likely here because you (or a client) is in need of training or marketing content - and writing for the insurance industry may not be your strong suit. That's ok - you're in the right place. While writing about insurance, annuities, and retirement plans may not keep everyone awake at night, it's something that I've done rather well for nearly 25 years - and I'd be happy to discuss how I can deliver similar results for you and your business, too.

I am about delivering a experience: the experience of a sound financial understanding of your business model to help you make the best decisions for your business.
