Freelance copy-editor and proofreader

  |   Farnham, Surrey

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $33

I'm a freelance copy-editor and proofreading with 20 years' experience. My main experience is in educational publishing and in TEFL or ELT. I have an excellent eye for detail and can spot a typo at fifty paces. I have worked on texts for both the American and British markets. My degree in linguistics gives me an excellent understanding of the fundamentals of language and I bring that knowledge to bear when editing for sense and coherence of a text.
