Read Aloud to You

5


5 per unit - Virtual OK - Posted Feb 14, 2017

Reading is fun. But it's funner when someone else does it. You provide the digital file or if you can find it in my Library, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Library in San Jose, I will read it to you. If you have trouble reading, because of a disability, I certainly understand. if your child needs someone to read to them and you can't, call on me. I answer questions and will even discuss the book with you if you want.

However, you pay for my time. Not by word count. Each unit is 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, I am disabled and I may have to take a break. I will read during the discussed time. Which means that I will read for you during your appointment and no longer. You may discuss furthering your appointment with me, but I too have a schedule. In writing, I will agree to a certain amount of time. I will ask for the full pay for the unit if you are disconnected or turn off the Chat at anytime. I will consider the circumstances at a later time and may reimburse you. In the event, I am disconnected or I am unable to complete a unit, I will expect payment after ten minutes of reading. Which is two thirds of the time. I will not expect payment unless I have completed at least ten minutes.

I will read at my own pace. I can read anything for you in English. I am not proficient in any other language. If you do not speak English and simply want to hear English being read that's fine too. If you need explanations of words, that's fine, but remember, it's your time. In fact, be mindful, it's your time.

I can use any web based messenger, ICQ, Android app or Linux compatible Video or Audio only.

I will attempt to keep a pleasant demeanor, please be courteous. If you are not courteous, if you insult me or say anything to cajole me, I will turn off the chat and ask for pay for the units I have already worked plus the unit in which you were discourteous. I will consider that unit complete.

This is not a child or adult care service. I am not watching you or your kids. I am not a virtual babysitter. I will not responsible for any

Honestly the one and only deal I've ever had a problem with. He wrote, what in my opinion is a very immature and one sided review on me. All the issue...s he mentioned we discussed and agreed was solvable. For those who have seen the review and my job posting, never once have I claimed to be a professional. I'm just a teenage girl who can do silly voices that I thought someone could use. Sadly here this was not the case. I tried, I did not avoid you I simply did not see the message. Perhaps if you had simply sent me another instead of assuming we could have worked it out, anyhow we didn't so I wish you luck in finding someone else to read your smut and hopefully you won't have issues with them.show more

About Toby Nixon

I have a wide variety of Skills and Experiences. From the Spiritual and Parapsychological, Degrees in Science and Technology with an Award Scholarship from the National Science Foundation for excellen...ce in Science and Mathematics, Martial Arts, Hunting and Wilderness/Jungle Survival as well as writing. My father was an Army Special Forces Green Beret for 27 years of his military career. He also trained all Domestic Security over the fifth federal district of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. I Boxed and Wrestled in High School, fought bare fisted in Baton Rouge and have a Justified Homicide number that makes a serial killer's skin crawl. I am sort of an extremely high functioning Autistic, with brain damage before birth, damaging the soft tissue around my left and right temporal and parietal lobes on both sides due to lack of oxygen. I am extremely interested in Magick and Energy, Remote Viewing, Science and Forbidden Archeology. I write, science fiction and horror, but I am able to write things that will make you feel good. I am working on a story about a Child, that will be geared more toward a younger audience; kind of Alice in Wonderland. At nearly 40 and disabled but not totally helpless, I am at a loss for full time work. I have Disabling Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. Sixteen pounds of metal reforming my Tibia and knee, rejoining my crucial tendons so I can walk. Astonishingly enough, I can walk without a visible limp. I am a well traveled person, I consider politeness and professionalism to be of the highest priories. I may not be the best dressed person, but I am certainly methodical. I am fairly charitable spending much of my time, pursuing activism, protection of privacy and advocacy of the Homeless. Which is truly a wide variety of skills. Please contact me for any consulting project that may seem in line with my skills.show more
