    Daniel Brown

    Ph.D. in English: Academic Writer, Copy-editor, and Proofreader

    United States - Last active: 17 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

    Daniel Brown is a holder of a Ph.D. in English, earned from the University of Florida in 2012. I have 10 years' experience writing and publishing scholarly papers for humanities research, as well as editing, proofreading, and providing feedback on peer articles and dissertation chapters. As a graduate student, I also edited and proofread papers for graduate students for whom English was not their native language. As a teacher of English, I teach students basic concepts of academic essay writing, such as thesis statements, transitions, citations (primarily MLA, with some familiarity with APA, and IEEE), paragraph coherence, grammar, spelling, and overall mechanics. I have also taught professional and technical communication, and have experience with resumes, cover letters, memos, proposals, reports, troubleshooting guides. and other professional and technical documents. I can help you improve your writing in any of the above genres by fixing errors in organization, grammar, diction, spelling, and mechanics. Of course, this is not an offer to write your papers for you, as such a practice would be unethical. All ideas posited in a paper will remain your own, and I can only suggest areas where you might clarify, refine, or broaden your focus, or where you might need further support for your claims. In short, I can make your work look and sound more professional, polished, and "academic," but it will remain your own work. However, I am also willing to undergo original research and writing projects of a more extensive nature, assuming that I would be credited with authorship. Possibilities could include, but would not be limited to, articles for trade magazines, scientific magazines with a popular focus, copy for promotional materials, or blog content. My experience extends beyond academic writing to creative and copy writing, and I am able to adapt my style widely depending on the audience. I can take an interest in - and quickly learn enough to speak competently about - almost any subject.
