Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $13

As an enthusiastic reader with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and as one who has further studied punctuation, language usage, and proofreading technique outside of school, I am perceptive to the details on a page, to English grammar and punctuation and common oversights, and able to work with care while under a deadline to make you or your company look as professional as possible by assuring those oversights are never seen by your clients, correspondents, or the public.
