My publishing experience, academic training, and years of teaching have taught me how to collaborate with authors and bring out the best in their work. As I have done with my students for years, I will help you clarify your purpose, ideas, and organization in the early stages of composing. Depending upon your preference, I will pose questions face-to-face online or insert comments in your draft. Then, drawing upon my training in linguistics, I will not only proofread your manuscript meticulously but also explain WHY I have changed your phrasing. In other words, because I am a veteran teacher, I want to empower you to become a better writer--even if it means you won't need my services again!
