About Rebecca

My name is Rebecca and I have a Master's degree in English Literature and an undergraduate degree in publishing studies. I currently work at a publishing distribution company and will be attending Western Michigan University for a PhD in English Literature in Fall 2013. I am also a freelance copy editor and proofreader, and have experience as a technical writer and web content writer and editor.

I received a 36 for my ACT English score, and a 35 for my Reading score; I received a 164 for my GRE Verbal Reasoning score, and received a 660 on the GRE Literature in English Subject Test. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Illinois State University with Departmental Honors in English, and my MA dissertation from the University of York received a distinction.

I have experience in tutoring high school English, particularly in writing, and have also edited undergraduate and graduate-level work. If you need assistance writing or revising a paper, I'm happy to help, and make sure to leave constructive, thoughtful comments on your work--I don't just circle unnecessary commas and cross out misspelled words. I work to help you become a better writer through my editing and commenting. I can also help with learning spelling, vocabulary, and grammar outside of the context of writing papers.

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 have a Bachelor of Arts in Publishing Studies and have worked as a freelance copy editor and proofreader for five years. I also have a Master of Arts in Medieval English Literatures and am currently working on a PhD in English Literature, degrees which require an expert level of knowledge in writing and grammar. I received 100% on the WyzAnt grammar test and a 36--the top score--on the ACT Verbal portion.

Proofreading

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Publishing Studies and have worked as a freelance copy editor and proofreader for five years. During that time, I have edited and proofread projects from industrial shipping safety manuals to young adult science-fiction novels to non-fiction books on biking and medieval literature. I have also held full-time employment at two companies as a technical writer. I have also worked with high school and undergraduate students to develop and write essays, and to edit and revise their work.
