I have an Honours degree in English (studying modern English, linguistics, literature, Old English, Middle English) and also majored in psychology. I am a trained tutor in literacy and in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).
I qualified as a copy-editor and proofreader through Chapterhouse Publishing in the UK.
