I am a reliable and experienced writer and teacher of writing. My number one priority is meeting client needs by exceeding expectations and developing a positive working relationship. It's important to me to communicate with clients to make sure expectations are clear.
I am skilled at seamlessly incorporating SEO keywords that help drive clients to your site. Once I have lured customers in, my unique and captivating writing keeps them there and makes them want to read more. I have studied, written, and taught a variety of writing styles, from informative journalistic and technical writing to various forms of creative writing. I have taught high school writing for 7 years and have worked with students of all abilities, from struggling to advanced writers.
As a teacher, I am very skilled at making difficult concepts easy to understand, which has helped my clients in many industries such as technology, education, law, business, insurance, banking, health, medicine, and more. For example, I have helped lawyers communicate information about laws and protocols to clients. I have also broken down insurance into a language that the average end user can understand to help clients get new customers. No matter the industry, I can write the content in a smooth, reader friendly fashion.
I specialize in education, but have a passion for and experience in many areas including health and fitness, lifestyle, blog posts, podcast show notes, travel, parenting, pregnancy, dog training, home living, insurance, and real estate. One of my best skills is also thorough research. Even when writing about a new topic to me, I do the research needed to write a piece that makes me sound like an expert in the field. Some of my recent projects include contributing to an eBook about elementary education and curriculum, writing a website for a new fitness company, and reviewing home security systems.
In addition to being a freelance writer, I am a high school English teacher and my educational credentials include the following: Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education: English and Communications, English Minor from Penn State University
Master of Arts in Education: Literacy Education and Technology Education Concentrations, Certificate in Online Teaching and Learning from Michigan State University
