    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 6

    I'm a full-time freelance writer with a passion for words. In my free time I tutor for high school students, teach English to refugees, and volunteer with local nonprofits. I am storyteller. My fiction has won several prizes, including the prestigious National Foundation for the Advancement in the Arts YoungArts Award, The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, and a short film of mine was honored at the National Black Arts Festival. I've written several successful grants for local nonprofits. I'm a speed reader; I average 1100 words a minute. I approach every job (regardless of the format) with a strong sense of story. If something needs to be written, there is inevitably a story to be told. Your business has a story. Your blog is a story. Your family is a story. I have been trained to tell stories in every possible arena. My grants are successful because they harness the transcendent power of narrative. I teach my students to build their essays up-- using the words as bricks in elegant spirals of academic excellence. My ESOL students learn English by telling me the story of their lives-- word by word. Now, I want to help you tell your story. I am primarily here as an e-book and article writer for personal, academic and business needs. However, grant writing is my primary trade and I'd love to pick up some of that work too. I hope we can tell stories together soon.

My majors are Applied English Language Studies, General Linguistics and French. This degree has given a solid knowledge of grammar use, stylistics, editing, academic writing and copywriting. Over the past few years I have done editing work, editing both the grammar and style of pieces, tutoring English to school goers and General Linguistics to university students, both have allowed me to cement my grammar knowledge.

    A hot-blooded young writer, I'm quite eager to help you out with any sort of writing work you may need. I am rather flexible in my writing which can range from the humorous to the darkly depressing to formal and curt. I have worked extensively with other websites as well and it is an absolute pleasure to be appreciated for my skills.

    Russian/Ukrainian Translator and Proofreader

    Ukraine - Last active: 16 hours ago - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 4

    Experienced / Reliable / Responsible / Professional. Thank you for visiting my page. If you want a high-quality translation for ridiculously low price, please turn to other freelancers. There are lots of “professionals” out there. My time is as valuable as yours, but something tells me that many clients want both quality and cheapness at the same time. To my mind, it is impossible. Obviously, I represent a mix of experience and value due to my 3 year experience and I position myself mainly as Russian translator. Therefore, I offer a near-perfect translation, probably a single job, for $0,03-0,04/word (because I need more time to be meticulous in the choice of words, rereading a performed work as many times as it needs for finding misprints, mistakes etc) or a quick and normal translation, possibly a long-term cooperation, for $0,01/word. Translating: I am a native Russian/Ukrainian (excellent grammar) <> English (fluent) < German (novice, I can translate into mentioned three languages), Latin (novice, one year course) Proofreading: I went through a long period of trainings and I benefited greatly from the partnership with the last Company. During a year and a half I have been being sent every two weeks a list of recommendations and suggestions on how to improve the quality of translations to make articles I have been translating more useful and adapted to general public. There have been remarks and mistakes made by more than 150 translators as well. I read attentively these instructions and got minor remarks only at the very beginning. In a month or so of my cooperation with the Company until recently, my articles have been selectively chosen and every time I have got the highest rates. In my opinion, this experience could help me to be a good proofreader. The main areas I have been improving my skills at: • Technical documentation (detailed guides, instructions, description of processes) • Specialized documentation (home appliances, layout and construction of vehicles etc.) • Videogames (detailed game/App instructions, tutorials, user-friendly guides etc.) • Medicine (description of drugs, diseases etc.) • Sports (trainings, workouts, exercises etc.) • Website content (company's objectives, priorities, offerings etc.) • Travel guides (in narrative style) • Blog translation • Personal correspondence • Resume/CV • Editing (meticulous finding of misprints and mistakes) Translation experience: • 800+ various articles • 500.000+ words from Eng into Rus • 15.000+ words from Rus/Ukr into Eng oDesk experience: • $5,000+ earnings • 9 oDesk tests done with distinguished results • 5+ jobs completed Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information!
