Have you ever sent a document out with “pubic” in it when you meant “public”?
“Orgasm” when you meant “organism”?
“Manger” when you meant “manager”?
Do you know why it’s the “people’s” choice, not the “peoples’ ” choice?
How about using “me” or “myself” … or a semicolon? Do you know the rules for those?
If you’re like many of us, you took your last grammar class when you were too young to know that it would be important to you as an adult. But if you create any kind of content for public consumption and you struggle with using American grammar — words and punctuation — I can help.
I’m Susan Rooks, aka the Grammar Goddess, and I’ve been helping business professionals strengthen their communication skills for over 25 years in three ways.
EDITING / COPYEDITING / PROOFREADING SERVICES

What’s the common thread among them? They all know that their work — whether it’s their own or a client’s — must be excellent. They can’t afford to have obvious errors ever!
Sometimes there aren’t three hours in a day to attend a class, but maybe there’s an hour for a Zoom (or other platform) 1:1 training, dedicated just to you!
For those companies interested in offering their employees communication-based training to help them shine, I can help. I work in three main areas — American Grammar, Business Writing, and Interpersonal Skills, including Introduction to DiSC® — to help business pros get the info they need to succeed in a short timeframe. The workshops are just three hours long (2021: Zoom for just an hour) to respect busy professionals’ time, and they can be tailored to meet an individual client’s needs.
And to help you succeed on the

My only goal is to help everyone look and sound as smart as they are.
