Service Description

I was an full time English teacher in Japan for two years, and it was there that I discovered my love for proofreading. I have corrected speeches, essays and letters and am comfortable with fiction. Occasionally I also write travel articles and video game reviews. Through my prior office experience I developed professionalism, timeliness, and dedication. I offer quick turnaround times and easy accessibility to all of my clients.

Using the Chicago Manual of Style, I will take your fiction or non-fiction work and correct any spelling, grammatical, layout, and vocabulary errors. For those who send electronic documents, I do all of my work in Microsoft Word using Track Changes. I will keep all lines of communication open, you will never have to wonder about the status of your work or wonder why you can't get in touch with me. As I am trying to build up experience on my resume, my rates reflect entry level prices.

Let's work together to bring your writing to the world.
