I am a compassionate, dedicated professional with a heart for empowering others to not only expand their reading and writing abilities, but also grow as individuals. I am motivated by building deep, lasting relationships with people and using my communication skills to support others' dreams.
As an editor, I have a knack for uncovering the heart of a message, chiseling it down to its most authentic, relatable and impactful form. As a writer, I seek to understand and connect with my audience through substance, humor and sincerity. I tell the truth and use my own life experiences, knowledge and passion to make content come alive.
In working with me, you can expect:
- to be respected and honored as an individual
- to learn how to effectively convey your message
- to expand your vocabulary and command of the English language
- to be challenged to produce your best work
I am available for:
- freelance writing and editing services
- resume and cover letter editing and feedback
- English tutoring (all ages)
- reading, writing and comprehension coaching
I enjoy teaching both children and adults.
I've taught English to students all over the world! A few years ago, I served on an 11-month humanitarian mission that took me through areas of South America, Africa and Asia. I've instructed classes of 35+ students as well as mentored and tutored both children and adults one-on-one. My students often told me that they appreciated my enthusiasm and dedication to their personal growth.
I connect with people and seek to understand their unique needs. While I am committed to encouraging and inspiring individuals to reach their potential, I also expect that they pursue excellence in the tasks that they undertake with me. I am uplifting but also proactive, direct and honest.
