    I have worked as a freelance writing consultant since my years as an undergraduate, spending my senior year of undergraduate education working as an official tutor in my university's Center for Academic Success. I specialized in copy-editing, believing that no job was too small. I found working with non-English speakers to be especially rewarding, as I was able to explain grammar, syntax, and idiomatic expressions while viewing their progress over time! After graduating in 2013, I studied Philosophy of Art in Liverpool, England. I worked reading, editing, and checking citations in multiple styles for Master's students. I have experience editing undergraduate and master's theses in the fields of Anthropology, Art History, Business, and Communications.  less
