About Dorota


Bio

I am a UC Berkeley graduate with 4 years of writing and proofreading experience. During my day job, I am a paralegal at a non-profit law firm. One of my main responsibilities is to write, review and proofread various legal briefs related to criminal law. I am involved in mitigation and factual investigation, which often times translates into being able to draft narratives of people's lives and events, which then are used for legal petitions and motions. I also work as a recruitment officer,...

I am a UC Berkeley graduate with 4 years of writing and proofreading experience. During my day job, I am a paralegal at a non-profit law firm. One of my main responsibilities is to write, review and proofread various legal briefs related to criminal law. I am involved in mitigation and factual investigation, which often times translates into being able to draft narratives of people's lives and events, which then are used for legal petitions and motions. I also work as a recruitment officer, which has introduced me to what the top universities and law schools in the country desire in their ideal candidates. Though my experience in writing and proofreading has been mostly through my work and education, it allowed me to gain an insight into a style of writing appealing in a professional world.

Please contact me if you are looking to improve your writing skills, or need help with your college applications. I am a very open and communicative person, and I will do my best to work out a system that works for the both of us!

*** My schedule is pretty flexible, so I am often able to turn things around pretty quickly if that's what you need! We can meet and work on your questions together, or I can edit your work on my own!****

B.A. in Psychology from UC Berkeley graduated with a 4.0 GPA, high honors and honors thesis in emotion regulation and psychological health. 2 years of research experience involving literature review, data collection and data analysis.

I am a native Polish speaker, so if you want to either learn Polish or communicate in Polish to improve your other skills, I can certainly do that!

4.0 GPA at UC Berkeley, various college level writing classes in all subjects, 2 years of work experience as a paralegal where I write, edit and proofread legal briefs on daily basis

Dorota is an amazing Master's degree thesis tutor!

Dorota has been so patient, helpful, and friendly to my 55-year old mother, who is doing her Master's degree in English (her second language). She feels so supported by Dorota, even though she was extremely stressed and nervous when the program was starting. Dorota had been an amazing help & essay editor/brainstormer! Thank you so much!

Very helpful and knowledgeable tutor!

Dorota is a great writing tutor! When I sent her my research papers she made sure what I wanted to her focus on during the lesson and provided clear, insightful feedback. Whenever I had quick questions for clarification after the lesson she responded quickly and efficiently. Highly recommend her for any writing that needs proofreading!

Tutor did not give me a hard tiem

My first english tutor! I was in need for someone to proofread my assignment for a math class. I was not sure if their were tutors like this but I just needed help with the English part. she responded to my request in a reasonable time and agree to do so.Her time did not met my time but since my assignment was already late and just needed revision, she went the extra mile to help me by waking up early so I have time to submit.Not only that, she uses google doc and you can clearly see the revisions in different colors and it even shows the time she spent on it.Very easy to work with and I will see her consistently whenever I need a proofread/revision.Would consider her to anyone

Waitlist letter

Dorota helps me editing a waitlist letter for UCB and it was great! She was very patient, answering all my questions and explaining everything. She has a high quality writing skill and she got what I want to say very quickly and accurately.
