About this pro
I am a pleasure to work with-- I have technical and people skills-- and I prefer a simple vocabulary to obscure words. No need to bring your dictionary or wonder at my Flesch-Kincaid rating at our first meeting! I enjoy the technical work itself, and collaboration with clients during preparation and editing. I am friendly and intelligent and perfectionist to a fault: even an internal memo about employee benefits is interesting when reading it for improvement!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Varies by the job depending on difficulty, length, specific requirements, technical integration and type of work. Range is $25-$50/hour, and I work efficiently.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I keep up with graphics and web design, but this question doesn't really apply to editing English. I do research some words as needed for proper spelling, grammar, formal vs. casual usage, and pay attention to Flesch-Kincaid Readability.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?It's a natural fit for me. I've been a lay-editor my entire life, and as I worked in web-page management, I gradually branched out into a broader range of contract work.
