I read before I walked and was destined to work with language. I became a proofreader and soon after, an editor. During my career, I've edited half a million pages of material in the form of written communications for every industry. Language comes naturally to me. After my very first French class in junior high, I knew my college major would be French. I'm familiar with every grammatical rule--and can explain each one concisely and clearly. I've written style guides for major organizations that saw the need for me to guide them. I can always cite source and authority for teaching or stipulating a certain rule or for changing written material to something better. And I can teach how to actually use the dictionary, because the use of a dictionary is not as simple as "looking it up." There's much more to be gained than finding the right spelling of a word.
Relevant experience includes serving as a French tutor of junior high and senior high school students during my college days and then later, as a trained and credentialed literacy tutor by working one-on-one with people of all age-groups who are unable to read.
Hire this all-around tutor/editor/linguist, and you'll have it all.
