Updated: 15-September-2015 I am an American (native speaker), grew up in ... more Western Massachusetts, and earned my BA in mathematics from MCLA (cum laude). I worked as an analyst in the employee benefits field in Connecticut for 17 years. Since 2007 I have been living, teaching, and writing in PathumThani, Thailand with my family. I have been working as a math and English teacher for foreign language learners for nearly nine years. I have also been working continuously as a freelance writer during this time on a range of projects. I recently completed a 3 1/2 year project writing mainly on mathematics topics for an education company in Australia. These comprised writing detailed teaching units for new teachers, assessment tasks, and standardized tests. I wrote for all year levels based on the Australian curriculum; Year 1 through Year 10a. I embarked on my new career path in mid-2006, beginning with a TEFL course in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Shortly after that I began teaching and also working as a freelance writer. Since then, I have progressed in both my teaching and writing career tracks. For the last six years, I have been working as a math an English teacher at a local high school; in my writing work, I have completed a range of diverse long term assignments earning repeat work and high assessments from my clients. My objective is to continue working and developing as both a teacher and writer with a focus on education topics. _______________________________________________________________________________ My prior long term writing assignments include: -Employee benefits in South East Asia, including writing weekly news articles and updating country profiles. -Daily news for a travel website in the Middle East (www.irhal.com) and travel and business website in Pakistan (www.chutti.pk) Daily news and analysis on social media and the internet, for a social media and mobile focused website. less
