"If you want superb editing, I am the person to turn to.

I graduated magna cum laude from Davidson College with an honors degree in history and Phi Beta Kappa distinction. I then went on to receive an M.A. and a Ph.D. in American Studies from the College of William and Mary. What I gained most from these degrees was an ability to write well and think analytically. I have taught and tutored writers on and off for 25 years, and I have worked as a free-lance editor for five years. I work with writers of all ages and in a wide range of fields. My teaching jobs have been at the College of William and Mary (Williamsburg, VA), the University of Richmond (Richmond, VA), Keio University (Tokyo, Japan), Kasaoka High School (Kasaoka, Japan), and the Richland Two School District (Columbia, SC) as an AVID Tutor.

I lived and worked in Japan for six years. For ten years following this, I directed a summer exchange program for Japanese students visiting the American south. Working with Japanese students both in the U.S. and in Japan trained me as an English and ESOL teacher. Currently I work with hispanic elementary school students in a local gardening program. My wide-ranging experience gives me the ability to work well with all ages and abilities. I can help you with Ph.D.-level humanities, history, or cultural studies topics or I can help you with beginning level English-language writing and reading. I am versatile and talented.

At this time I prefer to do my work - proofreading, editing, and writing - online as I am traveling a lot. I am available almost any time to review or edit your writing and research papers. I encourage you to contact me and we will see what we can do to get you on the road to great success!" less...
