You only get one chance to make a a first impression.
Did you notice the mistake in that sentence? It can be so hard to find small errors where we don’t expect to find them. That’s where I come in. With a sharp eye and keen attention to detail, I will review your project to find errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, and consistency.
I completed training in General Proofreading: Theory and Practice, and I have an Honours Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto. As a native English speaker (Canadian), I have an excellent understanding of English grammar and word usage. I am an Ontario certified teacher with over fifteen years experience, and I currently teach at an outdoor school. (Let me take a look at your nature-based writing, educational materials, or books for young readers!)
I proofread a wide range of content including marketing materials, fiction, educational or instructional materials, websites, blogs, newsletters, technical reports, and more. I refer to the Chicago Manual of Style, 17th ed. and Merriam-Webster, but I can easily adapt to Canadian spellings and your specific style preferences. I also offer light copy editing services.
I invite you to visit my website, Facebook page, and LinkedIn profile. Let’s work together to put the finishing touches on your project so it represents you at your best.
