Scout's Editing and Consultation Services

Printer-friendly version

Hello! My name is Scout and I’m an Asian-American hailing from Southern California. My main aspirations are in law and politics, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t thoroughly enjoy and care about teaching and coaching those aspiring toward greater ends. As you can see, I have a long history of not only teaching and editing in English, but also coaching students (particularly international students) in academic, professional, and personal matters. I have a client-centered approach that integrates my sharp eye for detail, deep understanding of cultural and linguistic nuances, and high standards for professional and moral excellence. So far, I have a 100% client satisfaction rate and hope to continue my track record in quality output.

Currently, I am an online-based freelancer and will not be resuming in-person sessions until October.
