I am an academic proofreader and copyeditor, specialising in working with international students. Alongside my PhD I also trained for my postgraduate certificate in higher education, qualifying me to use a broad range of teaching skills to enhance my students’ learning. I subsequently taught undergraduate and postgraduate students for seven years and then international students exclusively at INTO University of Exeter for a further four years. As such I understand the specific difficulties that ESL students face. I found that I really enjoyed certain aspects of assignment marking, for instance giving constructive feedback to the students. Once I realised this I began proofreading and copy editing alongside teaching before making it my full-time occupation.
Issues I will edit include: basic spelling and grammar, appropriate tone, and clarity. When proofreading I make changes using “track changes” in Word (I can also work in LaTex if preferred), allowing you to review my suggestions and ask for clarification if needed. I have experience with undergraduate essays, dissertations, and PhD theses. I am familiar with most of the major formatting guides but particularly with APA and Harvard. My fee is £9 per 1,000 words.
