I am an accomplished development editor and author, specialising in mathematics education but with a broad background in educational and arts publications. I offer superb attention to detail, first-rate editorial and English language skills and complete dedication to doing an excellent job. I have spent the last 20 months mainly editing mathematics textbooks and revision guides, and I excel at both ensuring the maths is correct and meeting the highest editorial standards of clarity and consistency. I can also write well researched, engaging non-fiction tailored to any readership. My strength in structuring information means I excel not only at development editing but also at web editing and digital or interactive learning resources such as dynamic PowerPoints.
I also bring an artistic eye to the production process and have experience in branding, marketing and design.
