About Elizabeth


Bio

Hello! I have two areas of specialization: copy-editing and chemistry. They may seem very different, but both fields require clear communication, organization, and attention to detail.

Copy-editing philosophy:
I enjoy helping people communicate through the written word. I have a BA with distinction in Geography, a BS in Chemistry, a MA in Geography, and a MEd in Higher Education Administration. I have written for a variety of publications (in high school and college), and both of my...

Hello! I have two areas of specialization: copy-editing and chemistry. They may seem very different, but both fields require clear communication, organization, and attention to detail.

Copy-editing philosophy:
I enjoy helping people communicate through the written word. I have a BA with distinction in Geography, a BS in Chemistry, a MA in Geography, and a MEd in Higher Education Administration. I have written for a variety of publications (in high school and college), and both of my graduate programs were writing-intensive. I have copy-edited a variety of materials: cover letters, med school admission essays, and dissertations. I have an eye for detail and an ear for good writing.

Chemistry:
I have a BS in Chemistry and earned a GPA of 3.4/4.0. I have taken classes in general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, quantitative chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and physical chemistry. Although I did not pursue it as a career, I still admire the beauty and order reflected in the periodic table, the atomic model, and the inner workings of the (microscopic) universe. I can teach scientific reasoning and techniques such as dimensional analysis.

My approach is to work from a strengths-based perspective and I try to see things from the perspective of the writer/student. I love a good chemistry joke! The initial consultation and first half hour are free. For copy-editing, I prefer to work with google docs and I prefer to communicate through google chats.

If you are looking for feedback on a document, or you are interested in learning about the wonders of chemistry, please contact me and we can chat about your goals.

Superbly talented tutor and proof-reader!

Elizabeth taught me about tone, proper punctuation and thoughtful organization of my ideas. Her feedback was timely and substantially enhanced my writing and overall product.

Sierra, 2 lessons with Elizabeth

Punctual and Insightful

I appreciated Elizabeth's promptness with reply to my inquiry and review of my cover letter. Elizabeth had a genuine interest with understanding the content/specialty information of my cover letter to offer the most insightful suggestions. I was very pleased with my overall experience and I look forward to working again with Elizabeth!

Detailed copy-editing with clear and patient explanations

Elizabeth did wonderful work editing my dissertation chapter. Her comments were detailed and her explanations clear. She shared the document with me and then talked me through the edits and the questions I had over the phone. I would definitly hire her again. Thank you!
