Grammar

I have extensive experience using correct English grammar. I have been involved in its correct usage in the context of editing, teaching, and writing. In high school, I made a 34 on the English/Grammar portion of the test.


Writing


English

I have extensive experience using correct English grammar. I have been involved in its correct usage in the context of editing, teaching, and writing. In high school, I made a 34 on the English/Grammar portion of the test. Furthermore, I am well-read and quite fond of reading, which always serves to broaden one's understanding of the language.


ESL/ESOL

I have TEFL certification through International TEFL and TESOL Training (ITTT). I have over a year's experience as an ESL teacher abroad (in Taiwan). In addition, I have experience tutoring ESL students.


Literature

Not only am I familiar with a number of the "classics" in English and American literature, but I am also acquainted with the different technical ideas of literature. I am able to explain and develop with use of theme, hyperbole, the grotesque, and other devices employed by authors. In addition, I am qualified to teach comparative literature, having read a number of "classics" of Chinese, Japanese, Greek, Roman, Arabic, and Indian literature.


Proofreading


Theater

I have participated in local theater for five years. In addition, I took a number of theater classes at university. I have had minor leading roles in two shows. In addition, I am familiar with multiple acting methods/approaches.


Chinese

I have studied Mandarin Chinese for five years. I have a minor in Chinese. A year abroad in Taiwan studying Mandarin in an immersion environment has significantly sharpened my skills in this area. Additionally, I have ESL certification and experience, the principles of which can be readily applied in teaching foreign languages.
