Service Description

Proofreading:

Confident with your style and content but need a final polish?
Proofreading, the most basic edit, includes spelling, punctuation, and basic grammar corrections.

Copy Editing:

Typos, grammar problems, and word misusage can hold your work back from being published.
Copy Editing, the most requested edit, corrects mechanical errors such as spelling, grammar, word usage, and punctuation; notes inconsistencies; alerts authors to awkward or unclear passages; and ensures conformance to the appropriate style guide.
Heavy Copy Editing includes rewrites to awkward passages.

Academic Editing:

Could you use a professional eye on that all-important term paper before your professor gets his or her hands on it? Are you ready to bind that massive dissertation as soon as you get one good, thorough check? Does your personal essay for admission need an expert hand for a final polish?
I will NOT write your papers for you, but can provide an invaluable service for your academic papers. I will correct any mechanical errors, ensure your paper fits the correct style, note unclear passages, suggest rewording awkward passages, and offer constructive suggestions to make your paper as dynamic as possible.

Other Services:

I am happy to work on other projects such as web content, business documents, screenplays, and grant proposals.

Express Editing:
Depending on my workload and availability, I will happily do an express edit for you.
