My occupation is that of a marketing researcher, but I'm also a semi-professional proofreader and copy-editor. I have a B.A. in English (with a minor in French), and my M.A. is in Teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) and Applied Linguistics. I have been a Professional Writing Tutor at a university for four years, a freelance tutor for over 15 years, and a freelance copy-editor for over five years. I've assisted and collaborated with writers of varying languages, dialects, backgrounds, industries, and purposes. I take great joy in building writers' confidence by enhancing their work with my attention to detail.
