I have a lot of experience editing copy for accuracy and for coaching to a level acceptable for professional publication. I have also worked as a substitute teacher teaching middle school and high school students within the Sweetwater Union High School District.

I have written for the BBC and, since I came to the USA, in 1998, I have worked as a hands-on editor of newspapers all over San Diego County. I have a lot of experience editing copy for accuracy and for coaching to a level acceptable for professional publication. I have also worked as a substitute teacher teaching middle school and high school students within the Sweetwater Union High School District.

Many journalists have sent me unsolicited testimonials thanking me for having trained them and developed their writing careers. I have a sense of humor and learning with me is usually regarded as fun, even though ground tends to be covered at a professional rate.

Because of my newspaper background I am deadline driven and results oriented. I can work with you through exercises simply to raise your level of competence or I can concentrate on preparing you for an important test that may be coming up.

Let's get you up to speed. Get in touch. Try one session to see if we're a good fit.
