I have worked as a manufacturing engineer and a process improvement expert for the last seven years. I am also an avid writer and editor, using all my spare time writing novels and website copy. My main areas of expertise are mathematics, chemistry, creative and technical writing, Microsoft Office, chemical engineering, and business/process improvement.
For most of my career I have been producing and delivering training specifically to professionals for process improvement. But I have also tutored high school and university students in mathematics and engineering courses. I find it extremely rewarding to help someone understand a concept which has been giving them trouble, and I find that teaching enables me to understand things at a much deeper level.
