    I worked as a freelance, writing simple programs for my clients.

    Hello. Is it correct to write? "When I was a student I worked as a freelance writing simple programs for my clients".
    Please, show me every single one of my mistakes. Thank you.

    "Freelancer" would be better; or "freelance programmer".

    Re: I worked as a freelance, writing simple programs for my clients.

    Should I write a comma between "freelancer" and "writing"?
    Please, show me every single one of my mistakes. Thank you.

    Excuse me. What do you mean by "I would"? You mean "I would use a comma", don't you?

    'When I was a student I worked as a freelancer, thus writing simple programs for my clients.'

    Is it correct?
    I am not a teacher.

    "Thus" is not needed there.

    I reckon that "thus" makes the sentence logically incorrect. "When I was a student I worked as a freelancer, thus I could drink beer every day." Am I right?

    I mean 'I worked as a freelancer, thus writing simple programs for my clients.'
    'Thus' means 'in this way' above.
