Librarian and English Instructor helps with researched writing out of Western Chicagoland.

Methodology

We will be doing this together. I can show you some tricks of the trade, such as active verbs and coherence (think glue) techniques. Particularly strong on citation work, but will show you how, rather than supply the product. If you would just like help editing the paper, I can supply that service separately.

Background

Tutored in Campus Writing Center at Northern Illinois University while completing a graduate degree in English. Taught high school students research skills for over ten years. Currently hold a college position as a reference librarian. Some examples of awards I was given for my writing (judged anonymously!):
Northern Illinois University
• Papers Presented: Graduate Conference of Language and Literature
“’I know the Comedie Francaise’: The American as Melodramatic Reply”
“Who Killed John Keats?: ‘I’ Says the Quarterly”
“Pleasure in Prose: The Effective Style of Newman’s Apologia"
• Graduate Assistantship: Taught college freshmen Composition and the Research Paper
• First Prize, Orville Baker Award, Undergraduate English Essay:
“Perspective on the 17th Century: The Family and Social Relations”
