    Hello! I'm a valiant defender of the Queen's English and have a knack for polishing writing. If you choose to work with me, you will receive extremely high-quality work that is free of errors and plagiarism. If you require proofreading for your writing, I will use MS word to carefully edit your grammar, spelling, sentence structure, and improve overall readability. I will also comment on the content in the case of gaps, ambiguities, or anything else that might need improvement. If you need an article written, I will research the topic extensively and provide a professional, well-written piece that fits your specifications. I have a strong background in writing. I am no stranger to professional correspondence, research papers, and scientific journals. I'm well-versed in many topics, though Biology and Psychology are my forte. In addition to my editing and writing skills, I've been heavily involved in database design for a university department, which involves data cleaning, large Excel projects, and extreme attention to detail. I have managed a small company's accounts, invoices, and inventory. I also performed forensic accounting for this company, which required the organization of hundreds of documents and receipts. I am currently involved in pediatric neurosurgery research at a major children's hospital and hold an office job at my university's school of nursing. What you can expect from me: - Commitment to a quality product - Fast turnaround - Quick responses to messages - My best estimates for completion time - Flexibility in rates - Honesty about my abilities What I ask of you: - Clear instructions and requests - Your expected completion time - Transparency in the amount of work proofreading will require. If the desired document was written by someone with poor English skills, please let me know so that I can set aside enough time. PLEASE NOTE: I will only work directly with clients, not middlemen trying to turn a profit. If you want to pay me to write/edit something and plan to sell it to another client as your own work, do not hire or contact me. Thank you for your time and consideration!  less
