Allison Turner has a Bachelor of Arts in Humanistic Studies from McGill University and a Bachelor of Education in Teaching English as a Second Language from Concordia University, both in her hometown of Montreal.
Allison’s editing experience grew out of her teaching, which has been mostly one-on-one and has often included teaching writing. Her sometimes successful attempts to express herself in French and in German, along with her smatterings of knowledge of other languages, give her insight into what writers mean when it’s not quite what they say. Her clients also appreciate her extreme nit-pickiness—certainly more than her husband and children do.
Allison lives near Zug, Switzerland. In addition to editing for English Editing Experts, she teaches English and is the Zurich and Zug/Lucerne editor for the English-language magazine Hello Switzerland.
