    As a freelance writer and editor I have worked online at various intervals over the past five years on different websites writing on several topics. My coporate work experience has been in many industries and roles, with several years in quality assurance as a proofreader and copyeditor. My focus is on the quality of the project for the client's standards and needs, and that was my main role in quality assurance. Through my own work I focus on both the quality of content and presentation of an article or post in my writing, and with my own work I work to make sure that all grammar and content are up-to-standard. I look forward to being able to produce quality work for outside clients again through further freelance work.  less

    Hello! I'm Amanda and I would love to work with you! I am American, and for the last seven years I've worked in Japan, Chile, Spain and Denmark. I currently live in Copenhagen. I have worked as an English instructor (public schools, private institutes and freelance tutoring) and a human resources manager. I originally studied Mass Communication at Linfield College (McMinnville, Ore., USA), and recently finished a master's degree in Lifelong Learning: Policy and Management. My thorough understanding of English grammar and structure is a result of my bachelor's degree, which was designed for journalists and public relations practitioners, and my experience teaching English as a foreign language to students of all ages and abilities. I especially enjoy working on presentations, nonfiction texts and academic reports, as well as freelance research projects. Also, I have translated one scholarly article from Spanish to English, and it was a fantastic experience I would love to build on. I am organized and motivated, and I appreciate working with colleagues who are similarly focused. Please contact me if I can help with your project. I'm looking forward to speaking with you!  less
