I am a language fanatic. Grammar, usage, spelling...this is my passion (which can also mean my pet peeve)!
I can proofread in a glance, and edit with a quick perusal.

As for math, I am a whiz, as are all my brothers...from the aeronautical engineer to the computer programmer. It's just in my genes.
