How I Began

BJ’s Proofing and Editing is the culmination of my struggles from the bachelor’s degree to the doctorate degree.  Skills developed through practical application and as a writing coach assisting other graduate learners.

Reading and writing are the influences in and of my life.  The influence to write better began, in a little elementary classroom, with grammar tips such as, “i” before “e” except after “c”. The influence of teachers in those early years to read Twain and Longfellow encouraged my love of words and their usage. My educational journey culminated in the completion of my doctoral capstone in 2017 in Reading & Literacy.  Let me assist you in completing your goals.
