My professional career began in 2001 with a small start-up company, which specialized in transcribing congressional hearings on a near-real-time basis.

    Linguist: Writer | Translator | Proofreader | Editor | Blogger

    United States - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 3

    Thanks for taking a moment to take a look at my profile! I am a linguist with strong writing, researching, editing, and proofreading skills, specializing in English scholarly writing, translation, transcription, and research in second language acquisition. My passion for language has driven me towards multilingualism, a B.A. in Foreign Language and Literatures, an M.A. in Applied Linguistics, and a career in language education. As I write this, I am approaching graduation, wrapping up my research, academic writing, and final projects while living nomadically (currently in Bali, Indonesia). While I am new to freelancing work, I have over 2100 hours of private language and academic tutoring experience during which I managed the private education of up to 12 individual clients or groups at a time (self-employed). Two years of simultaneous travel, research, and academic writing also lends itself to a confidence in my ability to complete quality, detail oriented work independently and in a timely matter. If you’ve read this far, I invite you to take a look at my experience and education. At the moment, I am particularly interested in finding work that would allow me the opportunity to apply my passion and language skills to strengthening and refining the writing of others, bringing it closer to target-like constructions (for second language English or Spanish) or simply proofreading for problematic grammar, spelling, or style. I am eager to work with both academic and non-scholarly writing – essays, articles, reviews, proposals, sales/marketing copy, creative writing, etc. If you're interested in my creative writing, please visit my blog: Please let me know what other information I can offer to help determine whether your project and my skills and experience are a good fit! More about me: -U.S. born and a native-speaker of English -Fluent in Spanish and conversational in French -Proficient in APA and MLA citation and style requirements and guidelines -Trained in IPA transcription (primarily English, Spanish, and French.) -Experienced in transcription (orthographic) of audio recordings of conducted research -Trained in phonetic and phonology correction (accent assessment and training) -Strong knowledge of English and Spanish grammar (academic, professional, and vernacular) Experienced in: -Proof-reading and editing student work -English-Spanish/Spanish-English translation -Academic article reviews -Abstract Writing -Annotated Bibliographies -Textbook reviews and critiques -Creative Writing -Teaching essay writing -Research, analysis, and synthesis
