About Brian

Need help with your writing? I am available to tutor and edit mostly online to adults (anyone post-high school). I will help you edit your college term papers (or any other writing you need help with), as well as work with you on writing issues geared to your individual needs. Confused about how to cite sources? I am well versed in the guidelines of three major styles—MLA, APA, and Chicago—and able to adapt to any other style. English not your first language? I have a great deal of experience with ESL students, especially those who speak Chinese or Spanish as a first language; I know which English grammar points cause particular difficulty for speakers of these languages and why, so I can pinpoint your errors and help you correct them.

I have over fifteen years of experience teaching English and writing in some form and have taught developmental writing, English composition, and English literature at the college level in the U.S. In addition, I have taught various ESL/ESOL subjects to English majors at universities in China (where I lived and worked for seven and a half years). I currently work at a college writing center and tutor for a prominent company that offers online writing help to high schools and colleges across the country. I am also a freelance editor, with experience ranging from academic writing to corporate product manuals to fiction. I have an M.A. in history, an editing certificate, and a TEFL certificate.

Although I work mostly via the Internet, I am available to meet with you in the Boston area and locations to the north, if necessary. This would apply to special circumstances and in-depth projects such as theses and dissertations, in which occasional face-to-face meetings can be beneficial. I'm pretty flexible, so feel free to ask if you have any special concerns or wishes.
