English Proofreading

Service Description


- Writing (articles, ebooks, literature, children's lit, scientific and business reports)
- Proofreading and editing
- US/UK English
- Correction of 'chinglish' texts
- Product reviews
- Wordpress customizations
- PPC/Adwords

English is my first language (my only language if you don't count code), and I've a degree in plant ecology from the University of Sydney. For the fun of it I'm working my way through an English Lit degree too - which I only mention to impress upon you the fact that I'm clever, determined and not shy to say so.

Above all else I enjoy wordsmithing. If I had my way I'd take this laptop out to the shade of the jacaranda and craft story after story all the day. But, bills must be paid, so instead I rise to the challenge of producing sharp and focused text for clients who demand excellence, quality, and style - and I always deliver.

I'm pretty nifty at making quick webpages look good in Wordpress. I'm rather talented at running very successful Adwords campaigns, and I can bash up an article or two in no time at all.

I make an unreal pavlova as well, but sadly that's not really relevant here.
I'm an Aussie mom paying off the mortgage one job at a time. And that means you can be certain that every job is very important to me.
