I’d like to help you with your writing assignments. I taught writing classes at the University of Delaware for 4 years (the required freshman writing class, as well as upper-level business writing) and have mentored many, many students of all ages throughout the years. I get a great deal of satisfaction from helping people sort out their ideas and present them in a simple and effective manner. While I am straightforward in my editorial comments, I am also kind, helpful, and respectful.

In addition to my teaching experience, I have 22 years of experience in the communications field, having worked in both the corporate and nonprofit worlds. I write content for magazines, newsletters, brochures, websites, press releases, presentations, speeches, social media, and various forms of fundraising solicitations. In all of those positions, I have also been responsible for helping others with their writing. I’m a good teacher. I enjoy working with students, and it would be a lot of fun to work with you.

Sincerely,

Moira A. O.
