I am offering an accurate, affordable and flexible service as a proofreader for students, authors and publishers.

I am certified by the Publishing Training Centre, and I have 15 years’ experience as an English grammar teacher, working in Asia, the Middle East and Europe.

I have a Master’s Degree with distinction in English literature and I am currently working on a PhD in the same field.

I have extensive experience proofreading academic work but I also work with autobiographies, short stories, novels and other published materials.

I can help you if you are:

– an international student submitting papers in English to a university
– an English-speaking student who would like to achieve the highest standard of work at undergraduate or postgraduate level
– an author who would like to polish their work before submitting it to a publisher
– a publisher who needs a reliable, affordable freelance proofreader for one-off or regular contracts.

My international experience means that I am familiar with both British and American conventions in academic and general writing. Regardless of your location, I can help you improve the accuracy of your work.

I am happy to proofread samples of your work free of charge so that you can see if my service is right for you before you pay anything.

Please feel free to contact me by email at if you have any questions or if you would like to organise a Skype call to discuss your needs.


I would like to thank David Chichester for editing my proposal. When you think and search about something a lot, sometimes, it is hard to put things in an order. He was very helpful to me and he made time for me even his schedule was very busy in that week.
I would certainly recommend David Chichester to anyone looking for a proofreading service.


To call David Chichester a proofreader is not really giving him enough credit as he is, in fact, a brilliant editor. He took my words, all 97,000 of them and very skilfully and patiently helped me to make my first book, ‘Cookham To Cannes’ into a piece of work of which I am very proud. Certainly, he corrected grammatical errors, spelling mistakes and punctuation but he did much more. David’s attention to detail is astonishing. He questioned continuity, phrasing and anything he thought did not come across well. I cannot praise David Chichester enough for his diligence as an editor and I would highly recommend him to anybody who needs to have their work professionally assessed. Thank you, David.


David responded quickly to my requests and was always available to help with my queries via email and skype. I was so impressed with his help during my dissertation write up that I decided to employ him for my articles for publication also. He clearly understands what is needed for both academic as well as journalistic work and has shown to be adaptable, thorough and utterly professional. I cannot praise him enough.


I have worked with David Chichester a couple times. After I have finished my manuscripts, I prefer to get a proofreading from him. He is doing a very good job in a short time. It is hard to review 20 pages manuscript in a day, but he always does that.

I strongly recommend David Chichester…


I can’t thank you enough. Friendly, fast and very accurate proofreader. He was very helpful, can do it thoroughly at short notice and I was happy with all the work he did. I’m really satisfied with the delivered copy editing work and I absolutely recommend him.
