There are very few professionals with my range of broadcast and corporate writing experience. I've written or produced videos about sports, news, technology, church, health, personal growth and senior care. I adapt very well to the topics at hand. Editing other people's words to make them clearer and more impactful is a gift that I appreciate. It gives me satisfaction to take something good and make it better.(show more)

My work stands out because of the quality of my writing and the creative process behind it. Seven national writing awards speak to what other professionals think of my body of work. What I like most about my job is creating something that no one else would even think of doing. I enjoy telling stories and using the English language to the fullest. Open my toolbox and words come spilling out.(show more)

I provide writing and editing services with a focus on ghostwriting, marketing writing and business correspondence, job application documents, and college papers and scholarship applications, especially for international students. I have over 15 years experience serving satisfied clients representing a wide variety of needs and work environments. I also provide writing tutoring services for high school and college students. If writing is not your strong point, I can help you express in words what you already know and want to say well. Communicating effectively is the pivotal piece in presenting oneself professionally. My job is to help you succeed. I love meeting and working with new people, and helping them shape their voice and future through effective presentation. It is so satisfying to see positive results (the desired letter grade, the job interview or position landed, the vision for a business uniquely and accurately expressed). It sounds cliche, but helping others succeed is the most rewarding work!(show more)

I am a person who writes continually, and I edit every single word I put on paper. I do this because I cut my teeth on writing articles online and for newspapers, and one word had to stand for several. There is always a word count to be met in writing articles. Say it in very few words. From that I learned to be concise, trim unnecessary verbiage, and use grammar correctly. Lack of communication creates many problems for businesses and for society. I want your manuscript to say what you wish to say in the very best way possible.(show more)

I am a careful copy editor, and I am deliberate. I read it through the first time simply to read the story and catch obvious mistakes, then go back through it a second and third time to catch everything. I will make minor changes that, based on my experience, would help the flow of work. But I never make major changes without talking with the writer first. I love the language and how people tell stories.(show more)
What do you love about your job?
I just love working with words and ideas. I love helping other people take the ideas or feelings inside of them and help form these elements into words that express such feelings and ideas. It is very satisfying. I think everyone has ideas and feelings inside that they want others to know. I can help with that.
Who inspired you to start your own business?
I have a compulsion to write. One day, I was teaching an English class while using a poem. I asked the students to use that poem as a structure for their own poem. I did the assignment, too. I realized at that moment that I wanted to write as much as I wanted to teach, so I've done both for all these years. I also need a lot of independence and freedom to work when I want to. I work best at night. All these things combined served as my motivation to start my own business.

Hello! I recently finished a non-fiction memoir entitled "Pariah Down" and graduated from St. Mary's College of California with an MFA in Creative Writing.

I have several years of tutoring experience with writers and students of all ages and can assist you with your basic and/or more advanced literary needs.(show more)

I offer personalized tutoring session, concentrating in algebra and mathematics. I understand that students learn in different ways and at different paces, so I believe it is essential to find what works best for the student to make the sessions less stressful and more worthwhile. It is very rewarding to see a student solve very difficult mathematics problems all on their own. I have tutored in the past for O.A.S.E.S. (Oakland Asian Student Educational Services), an after school program at Lincoln Elementary assisting children on numerous subjects. Every week I would help a group of four students with homework, reading, mathematics, and other school subjects. I love tutoring but it is not my profession, so my prices are reasonable.
