Proofreading

Do you need someone to help you with your homework, essay, resume, article, or other document? I can help! I proofread and edit a wide range of documents, including essays, academic papers, business documents (business plans, website copy, white papers, marketing material, etc.), letters, legal documents, books, articles, and much more! I work quickly and accurately, and I can show you what I corrected so that you can improve your own writing. I can also help you during the research and writing process, if necessary. I am familiar with typical stylistic and citation formats, such as MLA, APA, Bluebook, CMS (Chicago) and AP. I’m happy to work with short deadlines!

Very patient

I love that Janet is so patient with me and has tried a myriad of techniques to help me understand why answer choices are right and why answer choices are wrong

Samantha, 13 lessons with Janet

Excellent Tutor!!!

I’m specifically focusing on the reading comp section in the LSAT because that’s the most challenging section for me. But WOW! My tutoring sessions with Janet makes everything seem so simple even though it’s dry writing. Her technique helps me to find the best answer and “what’s actually in the passage” because I’m one of those who assumes and over thinks the answer selections. Every week, I look forward to our session and feel confident that I’m correcting my mistakes in advance before taking the test! She also sends passages for me to work on during the week and I don’t cringe at the thought of taking them, instead I’m ready to see how quickly I can spot the answer in the process of elimination with her suggested techniques. I highly recommend Janet!!!

Kierra, 2 lessons with Janet

Great 1st lesson

Our first lesson was reassuring. I've tried studying on my own and tanked the LSAT. She gave me great tips and was very patient with me. I can't wait for our next lesson.

Kandice, 7 lessons with Janet

Great Tutor!

Janet is a fantastic tutor. I have worked with Janet on several projects such as TOEFL, GMAT, and Grad. School papers. She is the best! I'm so lucky to have found her!

Jose, 12 lessons with Janet

Personable and Professional

I found Janet to be personable and professional. Her experience and knowledge will prove to be valuable resources for me as the semester moves toward the looming final exam. Even when she was not aware of an exact issue, she offered to look up anything that I may have questions about,

Zachary, 5 lessons with Janet

Helpful LSAT Tutor

Janet helped me a lot. I had other tutors before and she was the only one who actually focused on what I was having trouble with. She has a lot of patience and doesn't mind explaining things various times. I recommend her!

Denice , 6 lessons with Janet

She is Amazing

she a great job in editing all of my documents for a reasonable price. I look forward to working with her again!

Reema, 2 lessons with Janet

Great tutor

Janet has been working with me on LSAT prep and my personal statement. She has been prepared and knowledgeable. We have only had a few lessons, but I feel the time we have had has been effective.

Jacqueline, 3 lessons with Janet

Janet is the best!

Janet was a very kind and patient tutor whose insightful feedback was extremely helpful in preperation for the LSAT. I had met with a number of other tutors prior to my session with Janet and none was able to zero in on what I needed to approve on quite like Janet. She explained things to me very clearly and was very patient.

Lyla, 3 lessons with Janet

Great help. Very patient!

Janet is so patient and so great and explaining things in a way I understand them. She also is really good at targeting the things I struggle with and helping me fix them.
