My name is Nancy Yeoman and I am a professional proofreader based in Devon. My freelance business began in 2018, when I finished working as a teacher and school librarian in Surrey. I have a joint honours degree in English and History and a PGCE teaching qualification. I have completed training with the Society for Proofreaders and Editors (SfEP) and am an intermediate-level member, which means I am bound by the SfEP code of practice. Having proofread hundreds of documents, I am confident in my ability to eradicate errors and polish your written work, whether it be in Word or PDF documents, on screen or in hard copy. My editing services are available to publishers, authors, students and businesses.
I had the pleasure of working with Nancy on a collection of short stories and found her to be quick, professional and helpful. I look forward to working with her again in the future. *Please note the omission of the Oxford or serial comma–I’m a proud Cracker American living the the States (or Colonies, if you prefer).
I would like to recommend proofreading services offered by Nancy. I was very impressed by the quality of her work. My academic papers were returned early, with helpful suggestions and useful corrections.
Nancy Yeoman is an excellent proofreader. I have used her services several times whilst working as a freelance journalist in Latin America. Her attention to detail has been a great help when it comes to journalistic articles, which often require a second pair of eyes. I highly recommend!
Nancy has been working with me on our school magazine publications for the last 7 years. She is extremely professional and flexible (especially when working with last minute delays or tight deadlines). Her work is clear, precise and incredibly thorough at all times. She is an invaluable part of our process and every year I’m increasingly thankful for her contribution in making our publication as professional and high standard as possible.
