About Dima

Hi!

I have a decade of experience in tutoring, editing, and proofreading -- both in an academic and a business context. I hold a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Edinburgh and my articles have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Variety, Flaunt, The Skinny, and Edinburgh Festivals Magazine. I have received several writing awards, including the Bernice Slote Award and a Highly Commended Bridport Prize. My creative writing has also appeared in various literary journals.

I have tutored elementary, high school, and college students in English Literature, Reading, and Writing. I have also helped edit and proofread dissertations at the Masters and PhD levels. For several years, I worked as an Essay Editor for a college counseling company; I helped students brainstorm, draft, and perfect college admission essays. For three years, I worked as a private tutor with a professional SAT and ACT preparation company and helped students to significantly increase test scores. I also have GRE tutoring experience -- I scored in the 99th percentile in the verbal portion of the GRE.

In addition, I have worked as a content writer and social media manager and am capable of producing engaging, clear, and effective copy for website, blog, and social media purposes. Because I hold a B.A. in Economics, I am also able to process and work with highly analytical content.

I'm confident in my ability to help you perfect an essay, improve a test score, or to simply gain better understanding of a subject.
