About Jacob

Hello. I am here to help you with your writing. No matter what stage your written assignments may be at, I can help get them developed, polished, and finalized. I have a BA in English with a concentration in writing. After graduating from UMass Lowell with the second highest GPA in the English department, I was hired by the school to supervise their 'Centers For Learning' tutoring labs. In addition to these duties, I also provided writing tutoring for students. I have worked with many different students at many different stages of their writing assignments and have learned how to tailor each tutoring session to each student's needs, skills, and trouble areas.

Having worked this whole past year as a proofreader, tasked to edit and finalize customer service reports for TD Bank, I guarantee that if I proofread your paper, no grammatical error will go unnoticed. I have been trained well to seek out such errors and typos.

I am also a creative writer at heart and focused primarily upon fiction and poetry during my schooling at UMass Lowell. I have worked extensively with Andre Dubus III and Gigi Thibodeau during my time there, and have developed a far greater understanding of the creative writing process since then. If you need someone to look at a manuscript and provide feedback, give you tips on creative writing, or prompt you to start work on the creation you have in mind, I would absolutely love to work with you on that as well.
