You’ve worked hard with your words and need them to count.

I’m an experienced first-language English proofreader specialising in working with multilingual authors. Your meaning and your own style will remain, and I’ll change punctuation and grammar where necessary for accuracy and consistency. Your document will end up as fine English writing. You’re the owner of your words, I’m their guardian. I’m YOUR PROOFREADER.

Trust that academics and students across the world are happy with my proofreading, from undergraduate to postdoctoral level in Social Sciences and Humanities. Cambridge University Press, Khatt Books, Gingko Press and Ubiquity Press are satisfied clients. So are communications agencies Stratton Craig, A Thousand Monkeys and Mother Tongue.

Ally was willing to take on a complex thesis project with a very short deadline. She completed it early and to impeccable standards. I cannot recommend her work highly enough – her attention to detail is extraordinary.

Ally’s performance is exemplary. In addition to her attentive scrutiny of the texts and her corrections to the minutest inconsistencies, she manages to leave the tone of voice and personality of the original author intact. Her skills, her punctuality and overall professionalism make us feel fortunate to be working with her.

As a written communications agency responsible for managing the content for many high-profile clients, it’s vital that we have an excellent and reliable proofreader as part of our freelance team. Ally fits the bill completely and has always provided an impressive and professional service. I recently commissioned Ally on a complex quality-checking job that involved reviewing and marking 450 product descriptions. Ally’s level of feedback was extremely detailed and was praised by the client. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Ally for proofreading tasks.

My experience with Ally was great. She was very fast, meticulous, and passionate about the piece we edited together. She was also very flexible and she had the right balance between maintaining my voice and properly editing the text (a tough line to walk). I highly recommend Ally.


Prompt service, taking care of every detail, always excellent! Highly recommended!


Ally undertook the tasks of proofreading an article that I had written and my doctoral thesis with a professional attitude. She was thorough in her approach and enabled me to improve the quality of my work. My expectations were managed well in terms of the timeframe for completion of the proofreading work, and it was a joy to work with her. I can recommend the quality of her work.


Professional and quick.


Ally is just fantastic. She does an exceptional job, fast, and very meticulous. In my case, she helps me in the field of marketing. Very good job.
