About Peggy

I am passionate about English literature and writing. I pride myself on impeccable grammar, punctuation, spelling and style skills. As a professional freelance copywriter for the last nine years, I routinely proofread clients' writing and then edit or help rewrite it until it is perfect. I follow the Associated Press Style Book, which I know inside out.

During my M.A. program in Literature & Writing, I took a teaching course and also was a Teaching Assistant who graded English papers. I feel as though I have the knowledge, skills and desire to help any student--or adult--become a better writer. This is important in our current world where texting, social media and casual emails have replaced traditional writing skills.

I look forward to the opportunity to help you improve your writing ability. I also believe that I can teach you to actually enjoy writing. Please contact me to learn more about my experience and so that I can learn more about your needs. Then, we can schedule lessons and begin our work.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Grammar

I pride myself on impeccable grammar, punctuation and spelling skills. I have both a B.A. and an M.A. in English Literature & Writing. My education background has made the rules of grammar second nature to me. Also, as a professional freelance copywriter for the last nine years, I routinely proofread clients' writing and then edit or help rewrite it until it is perfect.

Literature

I have both a B.A. and an M.A. in English Literature & Writing. My background includes studying and analyzing poetry, prose and drama. I have a preference for Modern works, but I am knowledgeable about many different literary eras.

Proofreading

As a professional freelance copywriter for the last nine years, I routinely proofread clients' writing for correct grammar, punctuation, spelling, style and cohesion. I then edit or help rewrite it until it is perfect. I also have strong knowledge of the Associated Press Style Book, which I use when proofreading / editing a clients' writing.
