About Mara

I have been a voracious reader and writer from a young age. I graduated as valedictorian of my high school class with a 4.0 GPA and a perfect 800 score on the SAT in both writing and reading. I was accepted to Yale University as an English major, although financial reasons prevented me from attending. I have 4+ years of experience tutoring math and English, and 10+ years of experience editing, proofreading, and polishing other people's writing.

Few things in life make me happier than taking a piece of writing and fixing it. I excel at academic writing, and I love helping individuals become stronger writers by understanding specific areas of improvement as well as overarching theory and structure.

One of my strongest qualities is empathy. I get along with and am able to understand and work with a wide range of people who think differently. If someone is not a skilled writer, I can generally ascertain what they intended to say and help them form a more coherent or clear way to express themselves. Additionally, I spent several years working as an Apple Genius, and I am good at working with technology and explaining difficult concepts in ways that my listeners will understand.

If you are looking for a proofreader, editor, or someone to help you improve your writing, please shoot me a message! I would love to hear from you.
