I'd build out a portfolio if I was you.  Based on your overview, I'm sure you have quite a few samples that you can show potential clients.

To add to what Christy said - also make sure your time zone is set correctly. Some clients want to know that information.

I would also add:  Polish your Profile text. You indicate that you worked with "micro-level grammar and syntax issues." However, your Profile contains a number of problematic issues involving grammar and syntax. These are certainly not mortal sins, grammatically speaking, They are, however, errors of flow and style that, one might say, are at a "micro-level."


Your Profile as currently written is adequate and understandable, but its format/writing style does not [yet] provide clear support for the claims you make regarding your expertise.
