About Sarah

Hello potential student! I am available to proofread and edit papers, stories, scripts, applications, and any other written communication. I have experience working as a script editor for screenwriters: proofing their scripts thoroughly for grammatical errors, as well as giving story feedback when requested. I have also been working as a language arts tutor for elementary through high school students. While at UCLA, where I graduated valedictorian of my class, I often helped edit friends' papers, later realizing that I actually enjoyed it! Most recently I have been proofreading graduate school admissions essays, short stories, and pilot scripts. I love reading other people's work, often in topics I would never normally choose to read about.

I am extremely thorough and meticulous in my editing. I excel at correcting grammatical, spelling and usage errors, as well as fine-tuning sentences and phrasing to ensure that they convey the desired message in the clearest fashion possible. My approach to editing and proofreading is standard in terms of correcting grammar and technicalities, but I also adapt my work to fit the student at hand. Before I begin my editing process, I like to discuss with the student their goals and with what specifically they need help. Once I am sure we are on the same page, I can begin my process and help you to the best of my ability. I am on a mission to fix every weird-sounding sentence and make your writing flow beautifully!

Contact me if you need my help!
