I’m a full-time freelancer who teaches written English online to Czech clients and copyedits books for major global publishers, such as Penguin Random House. I have a master’s degree in creative writing (University of Montana, 2009) and a bachelor’s degree in English (University of Texas, 2006), and I’ve published three books of my own, most recently with the New York publisher Black Lawrence Press.

I studied Czech literature in translation at university, where a decade ago I received a writing award to travel to Prague, and I fell in love with the city. Having lived in Malá Strana for the last three years, I specialize in correcting documents written in English (books, cover letters, essays, emails, school projects, theses, etc.) so that they sound natural, clear, and confident.

Email me to let me know about you and your English needs, and we can arrange a free sample edit. I look forward to helping you improve your English! For more information about me, please see my website:
