I have a passion for the English language, and I enjoy proofreading, editing, and transcribing any piece of English literature.

Service Description

The English language is beautiful, but also mischievous. I believe any manuscript deserves a polishing touch with a trained eye. While I am very thorough, I also strive to keep the integrity and writing style of the author. I've written copious amounts of essays and research papers, including a 25 page senior thesis. Additionally, I am skilled in proofreading stories and poetry, and can offer sound critique on characters, plot lines, story arcs, and dialogue. I will provide detailed and prompt services, and will take every document seriously and professionally.
