Your words matter. Have you written an important essay, dissertation or thesis? Are you about to publish a new blog, website or report? Are you applying for your dream job? Professional, quality copy-editing and proofreading of your document will put your mind at rest and enable you to present your writing at its best. As an experienced, professionally trained copy-editor and proofreader I can help you create the right impression with your writing.

Proofreading for students, academics, business and authors

I specialise in working with students, independent academics, and businesses, worldwide, for whom English is a second language, helping them to polish and perfect their written English. I can ensure that your writing reads like native English. I also work with businesses and professionals, ensuring their materials are error free: all types of business reports, letters, brochures, emails, newsletters, CVs, personal statements, profiles, blog posts and websites.

Experience and qualifications

I have a degree in Law, professional post-degree qualifications in insurance and have been trained to exacting industry standards with the Publishing Training Company. As a native English speaker, I can help with spelling, grammar, punctuation and syntax. I learnt French as an adult, so I fully understand the difficulties of written communication in a second (third, fourth, or more!) language.

Law students

With a degree in Law and expertise in the OSCOLA citation style I specialise in helping law students, academics and legal professionals present their very best writing.

Academic proofreading

In addition to Law, I proofread and edit subject matter from all the humanities and social science fields: essays and dissertations ranging from 1,000 to 120,000 words, including PhD dissertations and journal articles for submission. I can check referencing to all the usual standards: APA, Harvard, Chicago, Oxford and OSCOLA.

Why choose me?

Friendly, approachable and supportive, I will always go the extra mile to ensure clients are happy with their editing or proof reading. I genuinely want my clients to succeed – in their studies, career, or with their business. I’m passionate about proofreading. My years of experience are backed by professional training and continuous professional development. My motto: never stop learning. With my meticulous eye for detail, I can eliminate errors, ensure consistency and polish your prose. I offer a personal, confidential service – no agencies or sub-contractors – at affordable rates.

Your proofreading is my priority

Any type of document – from a blog post to a book. I can assure you that you will receive a high-quality job with careful attention to detail, within agreed deadlines. I will personally check your document, not once, but several times, until I am happy with the end product.

Social Media Management

In addition to proofreading and copy-editing, I can provide a social media management service. Currently, I manage service Facebook pages and groups for a charity based here in France. I have experience of all the usual social media platforms, WordPress blogs, and scheduling.

Please don’t be put off my location in France. Like all proofreaders, copy editors and virtual assistants, I work remotely and so place and time zone should not be a concern.

I look forward to working with you!


Liz worked super quick on my reports in a last-minute request. And I was happy with the results. My supervisor was impressed that I did not make any spelling and grammatical errors on my work, like what I usually did before. She responded to request and query emails very quickly as well. She will make sure that you are satisfied with the results and will give you second review for free, which is very helpful. And most importantly she offers an affordable price, and pretty much flexible with it. She is definitely recommended :)


Liz is a very efficient, punctual and reliable proofreader. After her proofreading, my thesis became refined and classy. I became confident enough to submit my thesis and got a high grade. I appreciate her sincerity and time-bound work with useful comments and corrections. I look forward to working with her in future too. Excellent service! Absolutely a hassle-free business. Thank you Liz.
