Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $33

Before you publish, let me look over your writing: I have an innate ability to catch misspellings, punctuation problems, and grammar inconsistencies. I am good at knowing the difference between homophones: words that sound alike, with different meanings (it's/its; reign/rein/rain; their/they're). I have a large vocabulary and I am adept at word usage. I would love to go over your copy with my fine-toothed comb. I enjoy creative writing, and would be happy to provide alternative wording for you.

I am looking for part-time work from my home...

Service Description

I am offering proofreading.

I go where Spellcheck cannot tread: its vs it's; their vs they're vs there; reign vs rain vs rein--all those annoying little errors that set well-written work apart from the rest.

I am bullish on punctuation, and despise run-on sentences. I don't despise the people who write them, of course, and I will help them lance these atrocities out of their paragraphs with a surgical precision. I understand that dyslexia and high intelligence go hand in hand, and I would like to help my client put their best work before a wide audience.

I have proofread for several Elance clients since mid 2011. I have good feedback and several satisfied clients on Elance. I have also worked as a proofreader for a large marketing client, and I am capable of proofreading over 100,000 words per week on a regular basis. This includes providing a content analysis, but not tracked changes, which take longer and require extra pay.
