    Germany - Tests: 6

    I am an English translator with native German speaking/writing skills. Next to my one-year stay in London, I’ve got three years’ experience in social-media-communication for the leading telecommunication company in Germany. I took over the social media conversation in English in my department and completed the CEFR-Test with the result C1. Due to my social-media working environment I also have experience in lecturing and creative writing. I’m very motivated and quick in picking up new tasks and challenges to double my long term translation experience.

    Andrew Werschky - The Gardener Group

    United States

    I am a freelance professional writer and entrepreneur born and bred in the United States of America. My business (The Gardener Group) provides high quality copy, content, and editing services to the general public. We also provide business consulting/coaching, market development, and brand management solutions to a variety of small and large businesses. Our consistent focus and our bottom line is on People, Planet, and Profit (in that order). Understanding that what we do impacts our environment and finding "simple sustainable solutions" to the problems we all face is what drives us. Our motto: Love Is Always The Answer. My professional history and experience is mostly in the areas of sales and marketing, but I've also performed many other fascinating functions throughout my career. I spent 10 years in professional real estate (including sales, investment, and brokerage) and have extensive experience in the hospitality industry as well. I spent a couple years pursuing micro-farming and organic food distribution as a career and have worked with a host of world class companies. These include Food and Thought, RE/MAX International, The Walt Disney Corporation, Bloomin' Brands, ArtVan Furniture, New Horizons Computer Learning Centers, and more. Personally, I have an affinity for travel and am a bit of a foodie. I have lived and worked in 8 states to date. My favorite, thus far, was Hawaii where I spent time as a professional fisherman and a surf instructor on the islands of Oahu and Kauai respectively. I hope to sail the world one day (which is one of the reasons I do what I do). I love good food, books, films and adventure. My writing is constantly being perfected and is a source of great joy for me. I recently decided to sharpen my pencil a bit more and re-enrolled at Grand Valley State University after nearly 2 decades in the business sector. There, I am on track to complete a bachelor's degree in Creative/Professional writing by April of 2014. The abundant resources available to me there are a real asset. I have been blessed to be professionally coached by some great men throughout the years: Brian Buffini, Paul Starner, Floyd Wickman, and Brian Kelly to name a few, but my greatest coaches have been my parents and my King: Jesus. I am a family man (father of 5) who likes to help people achieve their goals and I hope to leave this world better for having been in it. I'd like to help you if I can and will always do my best to serve you and treat you fairly. I am committed to excellence and driven to provide you with the best service available on the market today.

    Mrs. Roxanne Yelvington

    United States - Tests: 3

    With a MA and BA in history, I have extensive experience professional and academic writing and researching. I completed four long-form, heavily-researched writing projects. I published a review within an acclaimed history journal in 2012. I also write creatively, and have had two poems and one short story published in independent magazines. I love to write, and would be happy to lend my writing knowledge to those seeking ghost writers, content writers and editors. My four years tutoring at the PPCC Writing Center further made me an efficient editor, content reader, and fact-checker. This experience also allowed me to become incredibly familiar with English and citation style formatting: APA, MLA, CSE, CMS, AP. I further presented my own material about writing and tutoring at two CWWTC conferences in 2012 and 2010. I have instructed at the college level, and gained experience in time management, databases, and HR paperwork through that employment. I further have over ten years of experience in customer service, ranging from restaurant management to clerical work. I am comfortable with web technology, the Microsoft Office Suite and clerical duties.
