Essay editing (content+conventions)
I will edit an essay for grammar, spelling, word usage, and give you thorough feedback on the actual content of the essay. I won't re-write it for you, but I'll give you feedback that helps you do that yourself. I can get through around 3-4 double spaced pages per hour when I'm giving thorough feedback, so plan accordingly.
Training & Qualifications
I am a lifelong grammar fiend (blame my mum, she was an editor), a writing workshop veteran, and a creative writing student at my university (my emphasis is in creative nonfiction and poetry). I have edited many, many essays (and in academic settings, I have been known to help people bring up grades by a letter or more - not guaranteeing that, though!).
