Editing

I work with undergraduate and graduate students on personal statements, statements of purpose and portfolios. I specialize in helping writers craft statements that are coherent, authentic, and tailored to their audience. My approach is to highlight the core narrative of the writer’s personal and professional life i.e. their vision, experience, and values. If you hire me, I will look at grammar, punctuation, and spelling but my primary focus will be on higher order issues of rhetoric, clarity, and audience.
