    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

    Hi, I am a native french speaker currently living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I work there as a french/english teacher, and also as a translator form both english and portuguese to french. Due to the fact that it is my native language and that I have been teaching it for more than 3 years, I have a solid knowledge of the french grammar and vocabulary. I make sure I never translate literally and I always pay attention to the context. As I teach it on a regular basis as well (I prepare my students for passing FCE and TOEIC exams), I speak english fluently, and I can read it and write it perfectly. I also speak portuguese fluently as I have been living in Brazil for more than 3 years now. I translate from both this languages to french, covering a wide range of topics. I am serious in my work and very responsive, and I only translate to my native language in order to provide top-notch translations.

    I am a University of Cincinnati graduate with a degree in Liberal Arts and a certificate in writing. As a writer, I'm quite passionate about engaging one's senses. Whether I'm producing a work of poetry or generating the outline of a persuasive essay, it's always my goal to keep the audience in mind. I'm a very detail-oriented person, and as a result, I pay close attention to errors in grammar, punctuation, and spelling. I also check for words that are used too frequently, so there isn't any unnecessary repetition. In terms of creative writing, I aim to put imagery at the forefront of a piece. I believe that poems and stories should be more than just a jumble of thoughts and emotions. In regard to academic writing, I recognize the need to sound professional. Therefore, I will keep it as such. ------------------------------------------------------- My primary areas of interest include the following: poetry, short stories, opinionated essays, informative articles, certain research papers, and the proofreading of work that falls into these boundaries.  less

    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

    Let me help you make your text as good as it can be! Good editing can make all the difference. As a student at Oxford and UCL, I have found time and again that having someone else's perspective is invaluable. Through exchanging proofreading assistance with friends, we were all able to gain top results. After graduation I worked at the UN, where I was responsible for the writing and editing of important reports and public statements. Now, I am taking a few months off before starting my PhD, and I want to spend my time editing for you! I am a native English speaker and can proofread any type of text. I specialise in academic and non-fiction work, and have particular expertise on politics, economics, and current events. I aim to go beyond ensuring perfect grammar, spelling and punctuation; I will provide you with improvements in the structure of the text and paragraphs, as well as advice on how to best appeal to your particular audience. Please get in touch with any questions you might have, and I hope we can work together soon.  less
