Hello. My name is Mark Baker. After earning a PhD from Harvard University in 2001, I spent most of my career working as a professor of history at two universities, one in California and one in Istanbul, Turkey. I now live on Vancouver Island, and I want to help you become a better writer. Throughout my career, I taught young people (mostly non-native English speakers) how to write. I have acquired significant skills in teaching how to do this. I am capable of helping you to improve your writing and also skilled at finding those sorts of small errors that only native speakers notice. I am happy to help any type of writer, from aspiring high school students to university students (especially non-native English speakers), to more mature writers just looking for a trained eye to improve their prose or to help them get published. I am also a skilled translator (particularly from Russian and Ukrainian into English). My fee is negotiable, depending on the student's needs and ability to pay. I am also flexible about location, willing to travel around the greater Victoria area, or we can communicate remotely, using email and/or chat and google docs.
