    I am at present a full-time Bachelor of Laws student who is trying to share my skills and experience through working on online jobs. One of my interests is writing and my writing experience dates back when I was in high school. I used to be a news writer in the school paper publication in high school, feature writer in the school paper publication in college and has been an article writer here in odesk.com. I am also an expert in article writing, academic and research writing and technical writing. Teaching is also one of the best skills that I’ve got. After successfully passing the Licensure Examination for teachers, I worked in a local university as an ESL (English as a Second Language) Instructor and at the same time a Mathematics Review Teacher. I also took some units in Master of Science in Mathematics. Legal research is also another field where I am good at. I have been a legal researcher and assistant for two years now and such experience brought me lots of inputs which make me an excellent legal researcher. My responsibilities include drafting legal opinions and legal memorandum, drafting contracts, drafting motions and other pleadings, case law research, and other legal related tasks. To sum it up, my objective is to search for employment opportunities in the following fields: 1. Article, academic, research and technical writing 2. Online teaching, Mathematics teacher, English Teacher 3. Legal research and legal assistant, personal assistant and/or virtual assistant. Once I'll be hired by a client, one thing is sure with me - GUARANTEED EXCELLENT SERVICE.  less

    I am a freelance writer and adjunct professor; I was a trial attorney until 2010. I have a BA and an MA in social sciences and each course of study was writing intensive. My academic training and current teaching roles have given me expertise in AP, MLA, Chicago and APA style. I have a weekly column in a local online magazine, I write and manage a small business blog, and I manage and produce social media for two organizations. I have demonstrated editorial judgement and a superior command of the English language. I have years of teaching experience with adults and children. Finally, I have several years of experience with training and course development. I am currently living in Phoenix but I am moving to Northern California. I will be there by September 1, 2013 but I can come early if I have work sooner.
