I am available to help with research papers, persuasive essays, history
papers, admissions essays, and other writing
at any phase of the writing process (on-site and remotely). I can work with you to help you develop a writing or research plan, create a system to track your sources and drafts, identify reliable sources and ensure adequate attribution. Moreover, I can also proofread your existing writing for style and content; grammar
and clarity; or meet to discuss general tips for improving writing and study habits, generally.
I have had the opportunity to research, plan, outline, compose, edit, and proofread, many evidence-based documents in law

Thus, my approach is to help you write more like someone with a rigorous professional education (i.e., law school) without having to endure this challenge yourself!
