I am a native English speaker with excellent grammar, spelling and punctuation. I have an amazing eye for detail and can edit any written work to look professional. I am also a qualified English Language Teacher with seven years' experience developing lessons and teaching at international schools. I am experienced with all learner levels from real beginners to university students preparing for TOEFL and IELTS examinations. I have more than 10 years' experience developing ESL and ELA materials and curricula for adults and children. I am a published writer of textbooks and readers for English learners. Most of my 30 ESL/ELA books for learners and school children are listed for sale on Amazon. See my publications section for links. I have been published in Canada, USA, UK and Australia so I have a working knowledge of North American, Australian and British English.
