Ph.D. and Professor in Atlanta offering dissertation and advanced writing/tutoring for scholars

Methodology

I absolutely love helping scholars to realize their publishing and academic goals, and I promise to take you from the beginning to the end. If you ever feel lost or stuck, you’ve come to the right place. Not only do I edit, but I also coach writers through projects. So bring on your next goal and let’s make it happen!

I hold a Ph.D. in Rhetoric and Composition from Georgia State University, a Master’s in English Education from Georgia State University, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance (violin) from The University of South Carolina.

As a freelance writer specializing in both academic and business writing, I have been published in College Composition & Communication, The Journal of Teaching Writing, Poptronics, and in many corporate and informational websites.

Our lessons will be a mix of direct instruction on the types of writing you need to learn, practice, evaluation, editing, and reflection. Think of my as your success coach, not as a teacher who lectures "at" you. Whether you are trying to pass the AP Language exam, the SAT, or your dissertation defense, you've come to the right place.

As an avid blogger, I enjoy reading and contributing to blogs on writing, photography, teaching, rhetoric, politics, and business.

Yours,

Dr. Elizabeth Jamison

Background

Expert Editing: With a Ph.D. in Composition & Rhetoric, many years as a professional writer/editor, over a decade of teaching advanced composition, and the successful completion of several large editing projects including dissertations, business reports, and SEO content marketing, I have consistently demonstrated my ability to produce writing/editing commensurate with the expectations of my customer.

• Professional Writing: As a freelance academic and business writer, I have worked with academic journals and corporations to help them create content for their websites and publications. I have also been published in several magazines, journals, and websites. As an avid blogger with several blogs about the writing process, health & fitness, technology, and online marketing, I am constantly writing and fine-tuning my craft.

• Teaching and Curriculum Design: As a college professor of English composition, I have based my many years of curriculum development on the latest research in my field. My composition lessons are grounded in composition theory, and my college courses are hybrid – part online, part in person. I love the opportunity to produce both synchronous and asynchronous lessons for my students. I also teach Chinese students of all ages online via Skype, AC, and QQ.

• Sales and Marketing Experience: I have worked in many different facets of sales: supporting a marketing team and preparing their presentations, working in inside sales, building new client portfolios, managing outside sales for long-term clients, and creating marketing materials, websites, brochures, multi-media and marketing campaigns.

Kennesaw State University, Part-Time Professor of ENGL 1102/Hybrid, Spring 2017

With a vision of true vertical teaming, I had the pleasure of teaching ENGL 1101-2 and discovering the gaps in learning that many college freshmen have.
