My name is Liz, and I recently graduated from USC with an MFA in Writing
& TV. At USC, I worked as a Writing tutor and Learning Assistant for USC undergraduates. Prior to graduate school, I spent four years teaching dramatic literature
and study skills
at Besant Hills High School, a college preparatory school in Southern California. I have also worked as a proofreader for legal and financial firms in New York City and an acting coach for all ages from kindergarten
My specialty is proofreading
academic papers. Narrative prose is my strong suit as I am a writer of original material, but I have also worked with students in business
, public policy, history
, arts & literature critique, econ, and law
. Areas of expertise include grammar
, punctuation, word choice, sentence structure, essay
construction, and thesis development. I have also edited papers for ESL
students from Austria, China, Iran, Lebanon and Russia and have several tips I can offer ESL students about American academic writing style.
I work with most students via email
in Microsoft Word
using track changes to show my proofreading edits and suggestions. I am also available for phone consultations to talk through any structural problems with a paper, or to meet in person in Glendale, CA.

writing done than seems humanly possible is both ridiculous and awesome. I'm so grateful to be a part of it and to be of service to such brave...
On May 11, I officially graduated with an MFA in Writing for Film and Television from USC's School of Cinematic Arts. My daughter is now 1 year old and so I am returning to WyAant as a tutor, still teaching the same subjects, but hoping to find more students
interested in learning about screenwriting.
