I am a freelance editor specializing in copyediting, developmental editing, and writing coaching. In 2017, I received my editing certificate from the University of Washington. I also tutor English and ESL both independently and for North Seattle College where I have been employed for over ten years. I have experience editing personal statements for college admission (undergraduate and graduate), English essays of various types, book editing (fiction), and manuscript evaluation. My BAs are in Russian language and literature and linguistics. I've also acquired some graduate level college credit in existential and phenomenological psychology from Seattle University.
