    I have been involved in all sections of the educational field, secondary and tertiary, as a teacher and as administrator. I am an avid reader of a multitude of genres and a writer of non fiction material. Added to this, I am also a proof reader and editor. Yes I have a large skills base, but then I am no spring chicken! I am fluent in two languages, with English being my home language and the one I am most comfortable using. Due to family commitments, I have been out of the job market for the last four years. However, with children all grown and finally living their own lives, I have decided to get the brain cells into motion again, doing what I love best: being involved in an area that uses words! As a result, I have decided to offer my services as a freelancer, affording me the opportunity to work in the most relaxed atmosphere possible which is my own home, and supplying a professional service at the same time. I have written various eBooks and done a plethora of editing and proof reading for clients on Odesk in the short while I have been here. Most of my clients do not close the contracts due to them asking to be able to use my services at their convenience at any given time. (That sentence can lead to all kinds of conclusions but let us stick to the professional Odesk one please!) I like to stay in constant communication with my clients as I complete a project. Transparency is important to me.  less
