Favorite referencing style
APA is my favorite referencing style because it's the simplest.
Why I became an editor
I have a great love of the English language, which has served me well as both an ESL teacher and tutor at separate colleges. I believe my natural inclination toward English and humanities in general will continue to serve me well in proofreading.
Background and experience
I worked as an ESL and college English tutor from 2015–2022 and an ESL level 3 teacher from 2018–2020.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I enjoy the process of reading and understanding my client's message and helping them to express it more clearly and eloquently. I love reading (and would love to edit) student psychology, psychology in general, fictional English, English literature and poetry, philosophy, fictional stories of various genres, and nonfiction.
Melmoth the Wanderer by Charles Maturin is my favorite book.
When not proofreading, I enjoy lifting weights, training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and listening to different types of experimental music.
The first time I read a document, I always do it out loud. In future passes, I continue to read out loud but will sometimes start at the end of the document and work backward.
