Hello, and a warm welcome to I provide a Proofreading and Editing service based in the United Kingdom.

About the service

I provide top class fully corrected and edited documents in British English with notes explaining the corrections if desired. I have offered a proofreading and editing service for several years. Consequently I am have extensive experience in working with both native British speakers and foreign nationals. I've also worked with both professionals and students, so have a very good understanding of the kind of mistakes different groups of people can make.

My background includes proofreading, editing and reworking essays, papers, books, CVs, covering letters, job applications and more, for people all over the world. I have a First Class BA (Hons) in English Language and Linguistics, and 20 years experience as an EFL teacher. Therefore I am skilled in correcting and restructuring copious amounts of written work, and with a Certificate in English Language teaching to Adults (Grade B) to top it off I am well equipped to handle your proofreading and editing project.

More about me and the service

I love writing and have produced a large amount of creative work, such as short stories, poems and song lyrics, being also a folk/blues guitarist, and am currently writing my first novel. I've also written non fiction, such as academic materials for teaching, website copy and blog posts.

I am well placed to give advice to students on essay structure and flow, and can lend my expertise to hone any piece of writing to your requirements.

You will receive corrections or suggested corrections with a full explanation (where requested). I clearly explain any suggested corrections to you, the client.
