Service Description

Detailed is how I would best describe my approach to proofreading. In addition to correcting spelling, I also take a close look at sentence structure, word choice, consistency, and more. It is important to me that I not only note grammatical errors, but also explain why it is incorrect.

I use a variety of references such as: Webster Dictionary, MLA handbook (7th Edition), and A Writer's Reference (7th Edition) by Diana Hacker and Nancy Sommers.

I take a serious approach to proofreading because I respect the written word and the hard work writers put in writing and researching their topic.

Ultimately, it is your name people will see when they read your work and I want it, and you, to shine!
