In addition to teaching Creative Writing and Literary ESL Courses, I’m a U.S. freelancer based out of Mexico City and happy to provide a variety of services online or in person. Generally, I work at an online rate of U.S. $10 or MX $125 per hour, but am open to negotiating bulk project or per page/word rates. Contact me to let me know what you’re looking for or if you have any questions!
Manuscript Reviews & Writing Coach Services
I am happy to provide you with in-depth feedback on your manuscript or help guide you in your project goals.
Individual or Group English Classes
I’m experienced teaching English as a second language at all levels and am happy to adapt lessons to your personal needs. I can meet in person, via webcam, or provide feedback on writing clearly in English via email exchanges. I live in Coyoacán, Mexico city, so individual classes in my neighborhood run at MX$200/hour, or $250 elsewhere in the city. Group rates are negotiable. This price includes planning time to tailor lessons to your needs and seek out appropriate resources. I also offer Literary English courses for intermediate to advanced level English students.
Spanish to English Translation
My specialty is literary translation, but I’m open to all types of projects; just let me know what you’re looking for. As an experienced writer, I will make sure that the translation is not only accurate but flows smoothly and clearly in English. I’m familiar with many types of Spanish, particularly Mexican, Argentine, and Spanish.
Editing & Proofreading
I’m familiar with AP, Chicago Manual of Style, and MLA standards. I’m also experienced with proofreading translated work.
Article or Copywriting
Areas of expertise include environmental issues, ethical travel, human rights, alternative education, language learning, vegetarian food, book reviews or other literary commentary, and the craft of writing. I am certainly open to exploring new areas, so let me know what you have in mind. Samples of my writing are available here.
