Copy-editor and tutor with a Ph.D. in English. I would like to help you improve your writing, research and/or reading comprehension skills.

Methodology

I have a wealth of experience in assisting pupils with their basic writing, academic writing, creative writing, applications essays, online content and advertisements. I have spent a considerable part of last two years working for various literary publishing companies and journals (Yale Press, Road Map Writers, etc.) as an editor, writing-assistant and research assistant. So, if you have a large drawer full of notes for a dream book project that you don't want to tackle alone, I could help you develop an outline, preliminary draft or a pitch.

Background

Last year, I received my doctorate in Comparative Literature from SUNY Binghamton. During my years of study, I worked as an editor and copy-editor with both native-born and ESL speakers. As a result, I am equally adept at working with writers on their emails as I am with academic articles for research journals, screenplays or novels.
