Service Description

My approach to any editing work is to find out your needs and goals. Then I read through your text to familiarize myself with it. Next, I start with the grammar and style/voice of the work, move to the overall organization of the work, and finish by re-reading it to see if I've missed anything. I will be happy to correspond with you regularly during the editing process.

For a text of about 10000 words, I can return it to you in 1-2 days. For 20000 words, the turn around time would be 3-5 days, and so on.

Additional qualifications:
-20+ years experience as an academic writer, curriculum developer, professor.
-Specialize in working with non-native speakers of English.
-Won a scholarship to work at my university writing center, where I helped students of all backgrounds improve their writing.
