~Audio book recordings - guided imagery/meditation, children's stories, etc. ~E-Learning Courses - Short and Long versions ~Radio - upbeat, smooth conversational, commercials/tags/jingles ~TV - commercials/tags/jingles ~ Video - dvd presentations/Youtube ~Messages on hold ~Power Point presentations __________________________________________________________ ~Audio Editing ~Audio Production ~Available Sound File Conversions - Mp3, WAV, WMA, FLAC, M4A, OGG ~24 hour turn around time or less - depending on length of project NOTE: My hourly rate posted is ONLY for administrative type work, not voice overs. For voice overs I am more than glad to give potential clients a quote. Clients usually pay as a bonus, milestone or fixed rate for these. I will do two re-dos of recordings at no charge. After the second there is a nominal fee. I've had the pleasure of working with great clients both in the past and presently on oDesk. I am also an English tutor and enjoy helping people learn or just brush up on the skills they already have for conversation or writing via Skype or email. I also welcome the opportunity to assist clients with personal assisting, email handling, transcription, etc. however my first choice is and will always be voice over projects. I welcome children's audio book projects to add to my growing list. My ONLY three primary ways of responding to potential new clients are through oDesk, skype and directly by phone. Due to multiple scams using oDesk trying to get me to communicate through Yahoo Messenger, for 'invitations to interview' I will not add anyone to my yahoo messenger list. Communication must be upfront and direct. Thank you. I absolutely LOVE oDesk and the projects-both challenging and easy that have come my way and continue to as a result. It has been and continues to be a wonderful journey into the world of freelance.

Great Minds Think Alike

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6

Currently working in a private Spanish language academy as the bilingual subdirector, I am hoping to expand my boundaries and utilize my skills on platforms that go beyond the walls of classrooms and offices. I have a BA in English Literature and a Masters of Education in Secondary Ed. and Communication Arts. I've done everything from call center work to tutoring (both online and in person), creating educational modules, doing transcription, teaching in public schools, and directing curriculum. My writing skills are strong, my interpersonal skills are fabulous, and my abilities to focus and be patient are (as you can imagine from a former middle school teacher) tantamount to that of a super hero. I also speak Spanish. I would love to work on your next project!
