I am a teacher and a published writer of short fiction. English is my native language. I have been teaching for 4 years now in a middle school in northern New Jersey. As a teacher I spend my days editing/proofreading the work of students. At the same time, I have been writing and publishing my own stories, articles and blogs (online and in print). I am looking for interesting, exciting projects that will allow me to earn a little extra income. PERSONAL SKILLS: • reliable, hard working, focused, efficient and fully dedicated to projects and deadlines (I work 7 days a week) • Ability to work independently or in a team • Ability to work under pressure and meet deadlines PROFESSIONAL SKILLS: As a writer and editor, I always do my best to present the client with the most professional final product. The grammar must be perfect! The writing should be clear, concise, and it must convey to the reader its intended message. Rest assured, once I have been hired for a project, I am available to you 24/7. I have loads of experience working with editors and this is no different. It is my job to give my clients exactly what they desire. I can send samples of the ongoing work as often as you like, so that you may be certain the project is progressing as you intended. I have a flexible schedule, and I check my email often, almost obsessively. I will never be hard to get a hold of.
