An American national living in Japan, I focus on cultural awareness and international communication. My background as an ESL teacher and as an interpreter for a travel agency gave me the opportunity to work with individuals from around the world. These experiences help in writing concise, clear ESL teaching materials and practical tests with logical explanations for the answers. Now I work from home so that I can take care of my young son. I take pride in professionalism; high-quality, level-appropriate English; and attention to detail. I have a black belt in judo and am interested in textile arts. In addition to academic work, I enjoy writing about my hobbies and about Japan; not flat stereotypes, but real experiences from living in a foreign culture today.

Encouraging, supportive personality--I'm here for you! "Having Tiffany as my editor was a wonderful experience. Her comments and suggestions always respected my writing voice and helped improve the structure and flow of my book, all while meeting every deadline on time. Her feedback was instrumental in polishing my manuscript into the final product it is now." -C. Rosa, author of An Unexpected Hunger (available now on Amazon) "Tiffany's method of kind encouragement made even the most difficult changes...something that I felt I could handle with minimal stress. She found insight into the world and characters I had created that I didn't even know I was missing." -Megan O'Russell, author of The Tethering (releasing fall 2014, Silence in the Library)
