ACADEMIC EDITOR AT YOUR SERVICE
I have been an academic editor and proofreader for more than fifteen years. In this capacity, I have edited manuscripts for foreign-born faculty at the University of Arizona in the technical sciences such as biosciences engineering and family and consumer sciences. I have faculty documentation to prove this. I have also successfully edited more than ten grant proposals. In addition, I have worked with foreign students completing their dissertations and theses in areas such as anthropology and hydrology.
I have a B.A. in Spanish and an M.A. in Russian with minors in English and Linguistics. I'm certified to teach English and ESL. One accomplishment I am especially proud of is editing my friend's son's personal statement to change his major from electrical engineering to physics. He is now a scientist at CERN in Geneva and a member of the team that worked on the Higgs Boson for which Higgs won the Nobel Prize (2013).
I enjoy working with writers of all genres and levels. I have an excellent grasp of English grammar, syntax and phonology as well as paragraph structure and organization so you can make an outstanding impression with your writing. I welcome all inquiries and offer efficient turnaround.
I am certified to teach elementary school and successfully taught literacy skills to students in first grade who lost two months at the outset of the year due to lack of instruction. At year's end, the students met grade level expectations and some exceeded them.
As a certified ESL teacher, phonics is
one of the first targets of language learning.
Minimal pairs distinguish between multitudes of
words such as bet and let where the b and l
morphemes distinguish this minimal pair.
I have tutored many students from Asia
who have mastered English phonics/phonology.
I have an M.A. in Russian from the University of Arizona. I have done scientific translation
Russian-English and took a course in Russian
roots that greatly facilitated learning
Russian vocabulary. I was a graduate teaching
assistant while studying Russian.
I have a B.A. in Spanish, an M.A. in Russian and have tutored students in English including adults from Latin America and Vietnam to elementary school students in reading and writing. I have also edited academic manuscripts for more than fifteen years.
I have edited for foreign-born faculty at the University of Arizona.
