SKILLS: - Native speaker of English, excellent English skills, both written and oral. - Documents will be changed with all necessary improvements, with careful attention to spelling, punctuation, grammar, sentence structure and context. - Communication with clients via email whenever needed. My passion for English has led me down the route of proofreading, writing and the academic study of English Literature. Throughout my entire academic career I have often proofread a number of professional applications and academic papers.These include university personal statements, professional business letters and master's degree level essays. Additionally,I have had previous experience as a volunteer teaching assistant, whereby I have taught children aged 11 to 15 basic mathematics. I also have daily practice of my proofreading skills through the language learning website Lang-8.com, whereby I edit user submissions and explain my corrections in a clear and concise manner to non native speakers of English.

Elisha S.

Top-rated Editor, Writer, Fr-Eng Translator

United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 10

My facility with words derives from a love of literature and a background in French, teaching English, and editing. Over the past 7 years, I've had the opportunity to work with a variety of texts, from academic papers to blogs to web content to novels, and various style guides, including AP, APA, MLA, and Chicago. Though my heart lies in fiction, I'm equally at home with non-fiction; my particular interest areas include sociology, anthropology, psychology, environmental issues, healthy living, nutrition, women's studies, feminist theory, queer theory, critical theory, and critical race theory. However, I welcome all types of texts. Let me help make your pen indeed mightier than the sword, whether it is simply proofreading for small errors or copy editing/line editing to improve structure, flow, word choice, clarity, coherence, and the like. With me, your texts and documents are in good hands.

Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

United States - Last active: 18 days ago - Tests: 4

I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.
