I am an experienced academic and non-fiction proofreader who provides a meticulous, holistic and stress-free service, ensuring that your work reads well and looks good.
Originally a maths teacher in the UK and Namibia, I moved to Japan in 2003, where I fell in love with the job of proofreading! I have worked with some of Asia’s top scientists and engineers for over 15 years, enabling their work to be published in the world’s most prestigious journals. I am equally comfortable working in other disciplines such as philosophy and social sciences. I am an Intermediate Member of CIEP, the UK’s main standards body for editing and proofreading.
If you are interested in me proofreading your work, please check out my website to learn more about my service, or send me a message. Maybe we can set up a video chat to discuss your needs.
