Service Description

Proofreading--I spent five months proofreading for CTB/McGraw-Hill. I currently am contracted to proofread assessment tests and ancillary materials for an education management company.

Copy editing--I spent 16 years as an editing specialist for CTB/McGraw-Hill. I recently performed copy editing of the final draft of a business book, "Workplace Wellness that Works" by Laura Putnam and published by Wiley. I have worked mostly with the Chicago Manual of Style and APA. I have some experience with MLA and AP style.

Substantive editing--At CTB/McGraw-Hill I made substantive edits to examiner manuals and ensured tests and manuals worked together. I suggested content changes and implemented them upon approval.

Fact-checking--One of my duties as an editing specialist was to check that facts in test items were correct.
