Service Description

[BACKGROUND & EXPERIENCE]

Due to my location, many people are doubtful about my language skills. However, I have been verified as a native English speaker (with expert status) by the Duolingo Test Center; I grew up with US English and was educated in UK English, so I can easily work with both. I've collaborated with numerous British, North American and Australian clients, from whom I’ve received excellent feedback.

I have worked with a variety of individual professionals; startups and small businesses; private firms and consultancies; large companies and organizations such as the United Nations; and several NGOs & NPOs. From these experiences, I have gained the following skills and expertise.

[SERVICE DESCRIPTION]

*Proofreading & Editing*

High-quality writing is invaluable. No matter what I provide – proofreading, copy-editing, content editing, or line editing (heavy editing) – I guarantee error-free work.

Not only do I correct spelling and grammar, but I also ensure consistency in style, tone, and structure. Additionally, if necessary or required by you, I rephrase/rewrite sentences. Each punctuation mark, word and paragraph is carefully reviewed for readability; and I always keep your target audience in mind when proofreading and editing.

I have worked on various texts:

• Government bids, grants proposals, and corporate documents;
• Academic works (essays, dissertations,...
