    My goal right now is to have supplemental income for my growing family, at the same time be of help to entrepreneurs. After 4 years teaching IT courses (2002-2006), I'm now currently working as a fulltime sales analyst in a FMCG distributor here in the Philippines (2006-present). My work includes data generation and analysis, sales targets setting, monitoring sellers' performance and coordination with the team to help them grow the business. I present my reports in our weekly and monthly meetings. On the sides I also help in encoding backlogs and other operational concerns whenever time permits, and also does some IT stuff like PC repair and troubleshooting. All these for the monthly salary of $300 a month! I don't necessarily enjoy at work all the time, what with all the pressures in sales, but I can say that I am happy and fulfilled. This is what keeps me going. whenever we achieve, and sometimes exceed, the company's objectives, and everyone gets rewarded. Because I know that I've contributed to that success.  less

    I am an experienced proof-reader, writer and editor, and i have had lots of experience proof-reading lengthy e-books and articles. I can write in an articulate manner with impeccable grammar and great fluency. I have an eye for spotting grammatical errors, adjusting sentences so they read much more fluently, and writing in a way which draws in the reader. My most recent work includes proof-reading of a 15 page paper for a Swiss writer, which involved editing the grammar, structure and vocabulary in order to improve the flow and consistency of the writing. Prior to this I completed a Ghost Writing project on Elance for an Australian child Psychologist, which entailed me writing 20 articles about Teenage Problems. The style of writing was informative yet engaging, and i wrote in a way which the reader could relate to. I can adapt my writing style to any tone desired in order to capture the audience and keep them interested in the topic. Having studied Law for the past 3 years, and having studied History & English Literature for 2 years prior, I have lots of experience in writing essays and articles (using Harvard Referencing) , which are engaging, informative and read written. I have an apt for spotting grammatical errors and I always ensure i proof-read and check my work to make sure it is perfected. About me: I am an English native Law student from the University of Sheffield, and i am currently studying French Law at University in Paris. My schedule is very flexible and i am always available on email. I am hard-working, reliable, and very flexible, and i can work to strict deadlines. I am very computer literate and very experienced with Microsoft Word. I have a profile on Elance however i am new to Odesk. If you require any more information please don't hesitate to contact me.  less
