I focus on errors in capitalization, spelling, and punctuation, as well as on typos and minor grammatical issues (e.g., comma splices, fragments, run-on sentences). A summary of more complicated grammatical and structural issues will be provided; however, they will not be resolved.
My editing encompasses all aspects of proofreading, addresses awkward style and structure at the sentence level, and corrects more complex errors in grammar, including--but not limited to--misplaced modifiers, parallelism, consistency in terminology, and wordiness. Additionally, I provide you a summary of more complicated developmental issues that should be considered.
