Jesse Atencio

Academic Writer, Researcher, Editor/Proofreader


Colorado Springs, United States


My main objective in joining oDesk is to seek opportunities to impart my skills in academic research and writing; editing and proofreading; writing literature reviews and summaries; data gathering and data entry, and library and web research to anyone who needs those services. I received my B.A. in political science from Washington University and my M.A. in the Humanities from the University of Chicago. As a student with very high marks at Ivy League level colleges, I have become extremely adept and efficient at writing research and academic papers. I am very familiar with Microsoft office (esp. Word, Excel, and ... morePowerPoint), STATA, various online databases, and several academic writing formats (e.g. MLA, Chicago, APSA, APA). I have worked 2 1/2 years as a researcher for political science professors at Washington University and the University of Chicago, and spent a year conducting my own independent granted-funded research in 2009, where I collected data from the national archives and created my own dataset. My major duties in my research experience have included proofreading and editing a final book manuscript and over ten academic article manuscripts (submitted to journals such as Political Research Quarterly and Law & Society Review), creating and editing data codebooks, writing reviews of academic literature and political developments, and retrieving data from online databases and libraries to create original datasets. I give high regards to professionalism to deliver the buyer's expected results in a timely manner. My main concern is providing quality service, and I'm positive you'll be satisfied with my work. less
