    I am a professional editor, English language textbook writer and English professor. In the last three years I planned, edited, and helped write 20 English as a Second Language (ESL) textbooks; each one with a matching online component. In the same period I presented at numerous conferences and published several academic articles in the field of language and language teaching. I currently train language teachers for the US Department of Defense, and find myself with some free time. I am hoping to find people here who needs a high-caliber writer or editor for a project that I can work on a few hours a week. I am fairly new here at oDesk, and am thus willing to work for lower wages until I have established my body of work here. My areas of expertise are English, teaching, and technology (especially as it pertains to instruction). Having lived in Japan for 10 years, I have quite a lot of experience with Japan and Japanese - though I would not call myself native-level. My Masters Degree is in English teaching, my Bachelor’s degree is in business (marketing). I am also very interested in cars, gardening, and light fiction.  less

    Does your project require someone who is organized, detail oriented and quality focused? If so, please read on. As a lifelong learner, I have acquired a variety of computer, organizational, research and planning skills. Currently I am providing these services: proofreading web content for usefulness as well as grammar, usability testing, and editing screen capture videos. However, I do welcome inquiries concerning other services. When proofreading a website I put myself in a new users mindset. If you are looking for someone to not only proofread, but also give you a user experience review with suggestions to improve the usefulness of content and ease of use, please contact me. For usability tests, I can provide a recording of my screen as well as audio as I test your website or application. The audio would be me speaking my thoughts, explaining what I am thinking, what I am doing, why I am doing it, if I am confused and other things of that nature. If you have a need for screencasts or training videos, I can help. I have experience recording the screen, editing the screen capture, editing and syncing audio to video, adding intros and outros, and producing the final video in a variety of formats. I am equipped with software for the Mac and PC including iMovie, GarageBand, ScreenFlow, Audacity and Camtasia Studio. I enjoy helping others succeed by doing the tasks that allow them to focus on their core business. What support services can I provide for your business?  less
