Hi. I’m Helena. I am a freelance proofreader and I take great pride in delivering a reliable, professional service.
I’m not a machine or a large, impersonal company. That means that I can give your work the time and energy it needs to make it as good as possible.
Proofreading isn’t just about checking for typos, inconsistencies and errors. Nor is it about sticking to outdated rules that do not compliment your natural style of writing. It’s about helping your writing to convey your meaning, your thoughts and your experiences – in essence to convey YOU.
A little about me.
I started in the world of finance as a technical report researcher and writer and then had a career break to concentrate on my family. As the world of finance had changed a lot in the time I was raising my children, I decided a change in direction was in order. We had got our first dog a few years previously so I decided to become a canine behaviourist. I am still actively practicing as a trainer/behaviourist but wanted something ‘more’ as well. Something I could do that fit around the kids and our dogs. Something with reading and that feeling I get when I am around words. So I decided to retrain as a proofreader.
