Dissertations, Essays, Theses, Proposals, Business Writing, Books
With a Ph.D. in English Literature, I have years of experience teaching and tutoring writing, including teaching composition at Rutgers University. I won't write your essay or paper for you, but I can give you feedback on how well it's going. I can also edit your document for organization, flow, and sentence-level improvements.
Various levels of consultation are available from simple editing and proofreading to more extensive feedback about organization and structure. I can also coach you, by phone and email, to improve your writing overall. Wouldn't it be good to get someone to read your project with the critical eye of teachers, professors, book publishers, or other readers - and then tell you how to make it better?
The earlier you bring me into the writing process, the more I can help you!
Dissertations: I've written a doctoral dissertation, I know how hard it can be to keep your dissertation or thesis on track. I can help you with the daunting task of organizing such a long and complex document. I can make sure your ideas flow and that you communicate with your reader.
Grad students have come to me from the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Virginia, the University of Florida, Walden University, Northern Illinois University, Northcentral University, Texas A&M, and many other schools. I've helped many satisfied clients improve and complete their dissertations or theses in a wide variety of fields, including:
Essays/Theses/Academic Articles: I have years of experience tutoring and teaching composition at the college level. I can help you figure out what you're trying to say and articulate it more clearly. And I can teach you how to make each and every sentence more effective. Clients have asked for my help with: application essays for college, grad school, and medical school; undergraduate papers; and academic articles submitted for publication.
Business Writing: People in the business world need to do a lot of writing, whether it's for memos, proposals, letters, Powerpoints, resumes, or reports. But many of these people have not received the kind of training in writing that allows them to write at the level they need. I can help you, either by editing your written products or by coaching you in how to improve your writing. One-on-one coaching by email and phone will help improve your writing. I guarantee it!
Books: I have edited several books on topics that include law, terrorism, real estate, science, and education. I can help you with just about any topic and any level of editing, and can assist with writing book proposals as well. I have also coached writers who are writing fiction and memoirs. Don't you want to increase your book's chances for publication by making it the best it can be?
I also lead business writing and grammar workshops for government and corporate clients through Language at Work.
