    My goals are to work for a progressive company supplying proofreading, editing and writing services.I have been an English teacher for almost 20 years, and currently write standardized test questions for many companies in the US. I know and understand every aspect of the common core state standards; how to align them to questions and curriculum. I can recognize and understand a standard when it's walking down the street trying to pretend it is something else. I have proofread for court reporters and have been hired to proof academic papers for clients and friends. Being detail oriented, I follow tight deadlines and guarantee my work.I write articles and resumes with a professional edge. I tend to write with a bit of humor unless the subject is serious. I believe, at times, I'm the only one who thinks I am funny. I enjoy researching subjects and writing reports or articles about what I've researched.  less

    I am a professional grant-writer and a retired attorney. I believe that my grant-writing experience and successful track record in winning grant awards will allow me to help you secure federal, foundation and corporate grants. I have four years of experience in grant research (predominantly foundations and, to a lesser extent, corporations), qualification, and writing. As a volunteer and a paid, contract grant writer, I have worked with eight nonprofits. In the last year, I have contributed to 13 grant applications (for state and county grantors), seven of which have received awards. The most significant are in the amounts of $9,000,000; $500,000; $100,000; and $100,000. Eight of those thirteen applications were for Homecrest House, a nonprofit low income housing community. The other five applications were for Tenderight, an Australian grant writing company which represents cities in Victoria, AU. As a grant writer, I have always had one-on-one relationships with the respective Executive Director of the nonprofits I've represented. I thoroughly enjoy that interaction.. I have a strong sense of responsibility for my work and I am both creative and detail-oriented. I have an ability to see both sides of an issue, to conceptualize complex ideas, to express them concisely, and to implement specific projects.  less
