Service Description

I provide proofreading, copy-editing, and tutoring services to both non-native and native speakers of English. My experience is in trade journalism and in copy-editing for academic essays, papers, dissertations, journal articles, and trade and business writing.

I can help with English written expression, through improving grammar and syntax, vocabulary, essay structure and structure of argument, precision and conciseness of writing, and other areas.

Additionally, I can assist you with improving your pronunciation, fluency, and diction. Individual and group sessions are both available.

I am highly conversant with the differences between British English and American English. I have lived and worked on all continents except Australia. I am also a fluent speaker of both Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.
