I am a multipotentialite (someone with many varied interests and skills) and I pool my skills to get the most out of projects. I greatly believe in life-long learning, which means I am always studying something. Currently, I am studying digital marketing and Danish. Contact me for further information or for a quote. These are my areas of experience:
I completed a PhD in 2014 at the University of Nottingham and have worked in Ireland as a researcher. I have extensive research experience. I have authored and co-authored academic publications. I am based near the British Library and so I am happy to do academic work for you, or if you need internet research doing, I can also do that.
In 2009 I copyedited Alexsandro Meireles’ academic book ‘Self-organizing rhythms in Brazilian Portuguese: Speech rate as a system perturbation’. I have edited a collection called ‘Domestic Imaginaries: Navigating the Home in Global Literary and Visual Cultures‘ which can be ordered from Amazon. I am happy to copyedit academic books, fiction and non-fiction, online content, reports or articles.
ARTICLE / REPORT WRITING
I have a PhD and have worked as an editor and teacher, so I have a very good idea of how to write accurate reports and research and write interesting articles. I have been running the Domestic Imaginaries blog since 2013 and I started the network in 2011. I write my own articles for my own blog on personal development, life-hacks, health and life-long learning. I have also written 1,000-2,000 articles for other people’s blogs, as well as book and product reviews.
LESSON PLAN WRITING
I have Qualified Teacher Status and a PGCE. I have a bank of lesson plans that I have created myself. One of my strongest areas in teaching is planning. I have been lecturing, teaching or tutoring for over 7 years so I have been planning lessons a very long time! I have been selling my lesson plans online for a while.
I have a BA in German and Portuguese and regularly teach translation in my role as a teacher. I have lived in Brazil, Germany and Austria and can draw on this cultural knowledge.
PROJECT MANAGEMENT / EVENTS MANAGEMENT / VIRTUAL ASSISTANT
Since the start of the Domestic Imaginaries network project, I have co-organised an international academic conference, co-edited a book, co-wrote a book chapter and continue to write a blog. I have also organised other events or projects. I have co-organised an international conference in Ireland, set up and ran my own company’s website, managed project accounts and done basic bookkeeping.
I would be happy to work as a project or event manager in the London and Essex areas or online as a VA to help your project/event get off the ground! I have skills in WordPress, Blogger, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and various other platforms. I also know basic html and have a great eye for images and detail.
