We want to help you grow.

From improving your English to polishing your academic and nonfiction writing, we empower writers.

Copyediting or proofreading for dissertations, master’s theses, journal articles, research and reflective essays, and admissions materials. We can help with grammar, clarity, and MLA, APA, or Chicago-style formatting.

Improve your writing skills. Clients use these sessions to talk through their writing process, develop their ideas, or improve their academic English skills in preparation for graduate school.

Coaching and feedback for all types of academic public speaking, including dissertation and thesis defenses, conference presentations, job talks, class speeches, or any other type of speech you may want or need to give. Consultations on communication anxiety or other challenges to public speaking.

Copyediting and proofreading for reports, white pages, educational materials, and documentation for educational agencies and institutions. We work with clients to clean up their drafts, improve readability, or double-check their final products. We specialize in nonfiction materials related to K–12 education.

What It's Like to Work With Us:

You provided an honest assessment and perspective from start to finish. . . . You understood my personal investment and were respectful of my work. You were accessible, organized and easy to work with. . . . The experience hiring you was one of the best decisions I made during the dissertation process. Finding you and your services was truly a blessing. Amid so many regular dissertation struggles, a pandemic and racial challenges your presence was actually very cathartic and kind. I was impressed by your work ethic and attention to detail."

[I appreciated] your willingness to research the norms for the particular genre and audience I was targeting, whether children's magazine or prayer book. . . . I hope to work with you again someday!"

About Ellen:

I taught middle school English for six years before I quit to pursue my love of language in a different manner. While I was teaching, I worked with advanced thinkers, imaginative creators, emerging speakers, and struggling writers. My favorite thing was to work with the individuals and help them with exactly what they needed. 

When I started editing, I reached back to my college days working in a university writing center, copyediting the school newspaper, and diving into my grammar and linguistics courses. I advanced my editing ability with an Art of Proofreading certification. Now, I combine those skills with my passion for seeing the writer as a person. I know your work is important to you, and I want to help you make your writing come to life–whether through advancing your academic English abilities, drafting your dissertation, polishing your formatting for your style guide, or checking for inconsistencies in your fiction piece, my focus is on you as the writer.  

About Krystal:

I recently completed my PhD in Rhetoric, and I consider myself a scholar of political rhetoric and popular culture. While in graduate school, I taught several communication courses and worked at a University Speaking Center and a University Writing Center. A self-proclaimed grammar nerd (a few of my favorite podcasts cover grammatical and linguistic topics!), I enjoy the editing and revising process. My favorite part of the writing process, though, is working with students and clients on organization, clarifying ideas, and enhancing argumentation. As your editor/consultant, I aim to provide you with the tools and resources to enrich your own writing. I benefited greatly from the writers and scholars who guided my own writing process, and I am delighted by my personal growth as a writer. I am now honored to provide similar guidance to others who are refining their own pieces.  

About Ambika:

As a language arts teacher for English language learners for ten-plus years, I am passionate about spelling, grammar, and writing. As your editor or coach, I strive to use my passion for writing, combined with the skills I have learned as a teacher, to help you as you move along your extraordinary journey. I thoroughly enjoy working one-on-one with others to help them enhance the quality of their writing.
I have successfully defended my dissertation and eagerly await graduation for my Doctorate in Education in December 2022. Likewise, I graduated from the University of Massachusetts, Boston with a master’s degree in Applied Linguistics. My love for languages is evidenced in my bachelor’s in Spanish language and literature and my bilingualism.
I currently live in the beautiful Dominican Republic and in my free time, I enjoy taking trips with my family to explore the island. I also love reading historical fiction and biographies.
