Experienced editor/writing coach new to Wyzant: For over 20 years I have worked as an editor and writing coach specialized in academic and analytical writing. I have 3 years university teaching experience, including extensive experience working with undergraduates developing and writing long research papers. My doctoral-level training was in American and European history and literature (MA/MPhil/ABD), and my scholarly writing has appeared in essay collections published by Rutgers University Press and Princeton UP. As a tutor and developmental editor, I am happy to work with college-level or advanced high school students on longer research papers as well as on shorter projects, including creative nonfiction, college and graduate or law school application essays.

Many of my editing/coaching clients are professors at R1 universities preparing manuscripts for peer-reviewed journal or university press publication. I’ve also worked with a range of corporate and nonprofit clients, teaching writers how to perfect their arguments and develop an individual or corporate voice. I’ve edited teaching materials used to train Big Law attorneys to write clearer, cleaner, and more persuasive briefs, and I’ve worked extensively with students and professionals who write in English as a second language.

Excellent!

Julia gave me excellent revisions and she puts in genuine effort into your work! I would definitely recommend for college essay revisions (she edited my college essays and supplementals).

Rachael, 6 lessons with Julia

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Julia was excellent! The reason for this is she patiently listened, then asked questions to understand my assignment. Julia then offered an example of a model/guideline of a proposal to follow. How to frame questions, and what kind of research/data to support my problem question. I appreciate Julia's guidance and will be working with her again. I felt Julia was a great Coach!

Marcia, 3 lessons with Julia

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Julia provided excellent resources for me to refer to and she was very prepared for the lesson. I expect to work with Julia for the long-term. I have already recommended Julia to a colleague in need of writing help too.
