You want your writing to communicate your thoughts so that the reader
understands both the content and the feeling as easily as possible. You
want to avoid errors in presentation. Getting a quick, inexpensive review
from a qualified, objective resource could be very helpful in improving the
quality of the piece and reducing some of the stress you may be feeling
about the project. I can help with focus, flow, and clarity. I can provide
correct usage, grammar, and punctuation. I can ask questions and make
suggestions so that you revise the piece more to your purpose. I can assist
students with their writing work, particularly if I see previous feedback
from the teacher.
I was valedictorian of my high school class of six hundred students.
My verbal SAT's were in the high 700's, and math
in the high 600's. I graduated from Stanford University with a major
in Russian and German. I passed the qualifying exam for the United States
My score in the Miller Analogy Test was in the high 90's. My aptitude
and interest tests have always indicated that I would do well in the fields
of editing, writing, and teaching English and other languages. In graduate
school I studied towards Master's degrees in teaching German and in
psychology. I graduated with honors from Katharine Gibbs Secretarial School.
As a human resources manager for large corporations for 25 years, I produced
training materials, employee handbooks, memos and proposals, articles for the
company newspaper, and the like. I also participated in the design and
implementation of corporate workshops on how to write more effectively.
I have written my own brochure as a massage therapist in private
practice. I have assisted others with their brochures. I have helped
friends and colleagues with their writing, ranging from nonfiction books to
articles to letters. I have a very sharp eye for typographical errors. I read a
variety of newspapers, magazines and books on a range of subjects.
This is to say that I am reasonably intelligent, curious about the world in
general, and have skills and interest in verbal communication. I enjoy the
challenges and the victories. I also enjoy helping people reach their objectives.
So if you would like a writing coach, a sounding board, a persnickety
punctuator, or someone to do the writing for you, get in touch with me.
I can help!
