I need a native english speaker to proof-read a thesis document of approximately 160 pages (wide margins).
I only need proof-reading for spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors - no editing, re-structuring, or re-writing.
The thesis will be delivered as a Latex document in multiple files, hence, basic familiarity with Latex is required so corrections can be made directly in the document. However, there is no need for in-depth Latex knowledge since all edits will be minor corrections.
The thesis covers topics in computer science, but the proof-reader need not be familiar with the subject.

In summary, I need somebody to diligently read the thesis and correct minor mistakes in the Latex source files. The proof-reader should have experience with technical and academic documents. I expect that it will take an experience proof-reader one full business day to process the entire document.
I need the work completed by Saturday morning PST and the work will start Thursday morning.
