I have taught English as a Second Language for nearly fifteen years. What my professional profile does not include is an additional bachelor's degree in Creative Writing from the University of Arizona.

I also thoroughly enjoy proofreading and editing academic papers, articles, proposals, theses, dissertations and other assign...
Patrice helped me tremendously with organizing my family medical files. She created spreadsheets and folders that enable me to readily access, input, and update important information as it evolves. Besides enabling me to easily access information for myself, I can better keep disparate medical providers informed as communication doesn't always happen between them. I will certainly use her excellent insights and skills for future projects!

I highly recommend Patrice for any editing project. I self-published a book in 2013 and was in serious need of someone to online edit my final draft. I contacted Patrice through Wyzant and she was phenomenal. I had a very tight deadline to get my work to the printer and Patrice was extremely helpful in editing on short notice and planning how we could meet the printer?s timeline. Her editing work was superior in several ways. First, she demonstrated sensitivity to and understanding of the purpose of my text. Also, Patrice edited my work while leaving my voice in the writing. Furthermore, she consulted with me throughout the process to ensure she was clear on what I was trying to say. Finally, she not only edited my work, she was able to teach me more about format and stylistic consistency, grammar, tone, register, citations, and fluency.
I feel I will be a much better writer in all my future works because of the dedication that Patrice shared with me in completing my book. I will certainly pursue Patrice?s editing services in the future and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a thorough, flexible and understanding editor. You will get so much more than just editing. The consulting Patrice provides while editing is above and beyond what you pay for.

Patrice helped so much in such a short period of time! She was able to help with vocabulary, pronunciation and more in a way we could only dream of!!
She was very attentive and didactic and was able to come up with amazing creative ways to make herself be understood and to make sure what she was teaching was being comprehended!
I am definitely going to reach out to her again when needed! Thank you Patrice!
