I am a freelance editor specializing in copyediting, line editing, developmental editing, manuscript evaluation, and writing coaching. In 2017, I received my editing certificate from the University of Washington. I also tutor English, ESL, Russian, accent reduction, and linguistics independently and at North Seattle College, where I have been employed since 2004. I edit personal statements for college admission (undergraduate and graduate), English essays of various types, and books (fiction). My BAs are in Russian language and literature and linguistics. Additionally, I have completed several graduate level college courses in existential and phenomenological psychology from Seattle University.
