Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $35

As a licensed court reporter and freelance writer, I have over 25 years of proofreading and editing experience. Almost anyone can provide some level of proofreading ability; however, a professional proofreader has a developed skill to immediately recognize grammatical errors and inconsistencies. This ability is a product of experience, and it allows me to provide uniquely superior services to my clients.

Service Description

My educational background includes a bachelor of science degree in English, a technical certification in computer science, training in court reporting/stenography, and graduate coursework in English and education. In addition to ongoing proofreading and writing assignments, over my career I have worked as a high school English teacher, a legal secretary, and since 1999 as a licensed court reporter. My work experience heavily influences my ability to confidently provide professional freelance proofreading and editing services to my clients. I gladly welcome questions and discussions from my clients regarding grammatical and contextual issues. Once hired, I consider myself a loyal member of my client's team, and I diligently strive to ensure that his/her project reaches its full potential.
