Favorite referencing style
MLA is my favorite because it's what I've known and used the longest.
Why I became an editor
I spent 15 years teaching English, and one of the aspects I loved the most was working with writers to improve their work. Proofreading allows me to do what I love: help writers present the best possible version of their words and work.
Background and experience
I taught high school English for 15 years (mostly advanced, college-level courses), working with students in small groups and one-on-one to improve their writing.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love the combination of objectivity and subjectivity. It’s a balance of art and science to polish a piece of writing – to make it sing and truly express the thoughts and intentions of the writer.
