I am an experienced native (UK) English freelance proofreader and copy-editor with a passion for language and an eye for detail.

I have experience of working on:

  • books (academic and other non-fiction)
  • journal articles
  • websites
  • research papers, theses and dissertations
  • business documents, including tenders and annual reports
  • promotional material (flyers, conference brochures, press releases)

I work on-screen, using tracked changes in Word documents. This means that distance is no object, and I can communicate with you by email.


My rate is £10.00 per 1000 words for straightforward proofreading (i.e. checking spelling, grammar and punctuation)

and stylistic recommendations to improve the readability of your document.

Reference checking is charged separately at an hourly rate of £10 per hour.

My preferred method of payment is by bank transfer; alternatively Paypal is accepted for small transactions.
