English

It’s one of the most complex languages on Earth. Even the people who grow up with it struggle with its rules. Don’t even mention the rules behind the exceptions to the rules!

Chances are you’re going to need the services of a grammar guru at least once in life. The question is, who you gonna call?

Tamra Reed – Professional Grammar Geek

I’m not affiliated with Ghostbusters, but I do my fair share of blasting the theme song. Seriously, who doesn’t? If you don’t, you should try it.

I’m a professional editor. I specialize in editing, proofreading and copyediting for students, businesses and authors.

I know you’re amazing at what you do, but there are only so many hours in a day. You must use them wisely. And you have this file (or maybe two) full of words that need to be perfect! But you’re struggling. Probably for one of these all too common reasons:

  • You’re short of time.
  • You struggle with the rules of English.
  • You need a second pair of trained eyes.
  • You just don’t know what to do with those words

Maybe you’re staring at a blank file because you need words. I can help with that, too. I’m a seasoned copywritercreative writer and technical writer.

But Who Am I?

You’re interested in qualifications. You’re my kind of people.

  • AA in Business Communications: I earned an Associate’s Degree in Biz Comm between 2010 and 2012. My degree includes concentrations in journalism and mass media. I’m a University of Phoenix Alumni.
  • Children’s Literature Certification: I have a certification from the Institute of Children’s Literature in writing for children and young adults. I worked under the supervision of the successful Catherine Welch while completing the necessary criteria for this certification.
  • 15 Years of Experience: I started in the literary industry as a freelance writer in 2002. Since then, I’ve worked for two magazines as a contributing writer and editor, written countless blogs and articles for content agencies and business clients, and worked on indie projects including e-books, lead magnets and blogs.

I’m also a work-from-home professional. I’ve been conducting business from my home office since 2010. As a stay-at-home mother of three, I use my blog to keep my skills sharp and provide helpful information to other work-from-home professionals (including parents) and my clients.
