Meet the course creator & your instructor

Hi! I'm Martha.

Growing up in Indiana, I knew I loved three things: people, language, and helping others.

I spent my time in college focusing on words before I started teaching. I taught in middle school, high school, community college, and university settings. While I love teaching, I wanted to work more with words and people.

So I'm proud to welcome you to my course offerings because so much love and thought has gone into designing and creating each and every course.

Every day, I get to work with people, play with language, and help others, and now, you get to connect with me too.

Get ready to level up your skills with practical applications, memorable practices and interactive tasks.

I'm ready! Are you?

This course helped me immensely in knowing how to start my freelance editing business. It showed me exactly what steps I need to take moving forward. It also taught me a great deal about editing.
