I am pleased to write this review for Janie. I needed a piece I wrote edited and proofread but was concerned to be turning it over to a "stranger". I took the chance with Janie and she was a perfect choice. She was quick, responsible, knowledgable and sensitive to the piece. She cleaned it up, making it presentable and making me look like I knew shat I was doing. She can be sure that with the next thing I need to submit to publishers I will call her and no longer Ghost Busters.
Jill edited many of my pieces at The Ohio State University and offers insightful and thorough feedback. She takes her time and definitely adds lot of value. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for editing services!
"In addition to proofreading and editing services, Robert provides various fundraising, grant-application and promotional writing services for our hospital. I have worked with him for over 15 years on a variety of projects ranging in size from individual correspondence to multi-page promotional packets to lengthy grant applications. No matter the specific end product, he takes the diverse information and varying needs of each project and crafts them into a well-communicated, streamlined and impacting and effective final product."
Judy is an excellent professional, with the requisite skills and experience. She has been a valuable resource to me in terms of her ability to assist me in my business preparation, and I'm certain that her talents would be valued for any company or as a personal consultant. Cordial and caring as well as highly knowledgeable, Judy is someone whom I hold in high regard. In short, I recommend her highly.
My work stands out above others because I am very reliable and I am able to help others achieve their goals. I love to help people and also give advice.
I provide writing, editing and proof reading skills to private and corporate industries. With an academic, business and professional writing background, I have provided only the most quality work in a timely manner for nearly eighteen years.
I handle all sorts of requests, from designing and executing designs for unusual wedding gowns (medieval and Ukrainian national, reinterpreted entirely in white, futuristic space traveler, etc.) to baking (for sale) and teaching individuals of ages from 8 to 80 how to bake all varieties of international breads and cuisines (thereby also sharing cultural knowledge) and teaching crafts and most forms of DIY to groups of children and adults. I also have some fairly advanced proofreading and technical writing experience, having assisted several professors in polishing manuscripts for publication while in graduate school. The breadth of my experience can readily be seen, as the subjects of these manuscripts covered the changing social demographics of the former Soviet Union, a study in political geography undertaken at the request of the leaders of the new Russia; a large tome with a number of beautiful photographs in full color of "The Bells of Moscow" subtitled that rang out in joy for the Russian armies' victorious defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo," and lastly, a scholarly work about Susa, the 'lost' capital of the ancient Persian empire, including information on the political and social structure of the ancient city, how and why the city came to be lost, its probable location and much more information. I have not been in touch with any of these professors recently. Until I can reach them, I won't post their names or any of their other information. In addition to these examples, I have quite a bit of writing experience on my own, e.g., "Prophecy Unfolds", a full length (about 90 minutes) interactive production of the Savior's nativity. Produced in odd-numbered years at the LDS chapel in Canal Winchester, it is based almost entirely on Old Testament scriptural predictions surrounding Christ's birth. I also have been periodically writing a compilation of short stories -- "Ancestor Tales." As the title suggests, the collection is based on the various life stories of my progenitors. I am constantly reminded of the old Chinese curse "May you live in interesting times." Many of my ancestors, although not in the slightest Oriental, definitely lived in "interesting times." I am finding much pleasure in making their stories come vividly to life. Quite recently, I began a project which has proven to be very enjoyable, whether it ends up marketable, remains to be seen. I am writing my own autobiography. However, it is quite different from the 'standard' life story. Whether written as an autobiography or as a biography, this one could just as easily be categorized as a cookbook. When much younger, I didn't keep a journal or diary. What I did keep was a blank book that had been converted into my own recipe book. Matching these recipes up to the appropriate memory is proving to be a bit more of a difficult task than I first imagined, but it is also proving to be a lot of fun!
Because my work is based on my many years of experience in the legal, medical and professional fields of the workforce. I see the need for accuracy, detail, and a step above the rest work when a client is trying to get ahead, of which I provide!
I proofread and edit any length of original work. I also tutor in English Literature and Grammar. I can help you fine tune your work, and give it the polish that it needs to get to the next level. I have mostly worked with personal associates to help with college courses, but I have also worked on a couple of business projects.
I have a keen eye when it comes to proofreading and editing. Don't send your jobs out with errors - that may cost you. I can clean up your copy and help with writing. I hold a Broadcast Journalism degree with a minor in English, so I LOVE words!
