I am an editor, and I offer a proofreading service in US and UK English I also provide a copy editing service. I have over four year's experience.

I can proofread your school, college, or university essay, or dissertation, thesis, PhD or academic article for spelling, grammar and syntax, plus consistency.

I will happily read through your web copy, blogs, magazine features, novels, scripts, stories, academic papers and more and ensure that the grammar and use of English is meticulous.
