Service Description

English is my first language, thus I am completely fluent in all aspects of English, and speak it with perfect pronunciation (Midlands British English accent). My international background has given me the experience of working with people of different cultures and backgrounds. My educational background has given me familiarity with the terminologies of various fields. I have taught English to speakers of other languages for eight years.

I have ten years of proofreading and editing experience for corporations, governments, inter-governmental organisations and universities. I have worked with various types of written materials, including academic papers, business communications, fiction, graduate student theses, legal documents, media articles, scholarly articles, and translations.

I am familiar with both British and American idioms and spelling conventions, as well as various style conventions, including APA, MLA and Chicago.

I am able to offer explanations so that my clients can understand why I make a particular correction. I also can offer suggestions and recommendations so that clients can see what other choices are possible to express what they mean.

Please do take a look at my sample portfolio. References are available upon request.
