I was a university lecturer and an English teacher for 10 years; I'm now a freelance writer and editor. I have a Master's in English and Linguistics & have worked as a proofreader and editor for several online publications, as well as a private editor for novels, academic publications & corporate documents for a range of companies & individuals around the world. I offer an unrivaled knowledge of English; grammar, spelling & punctuation of course, but also a strong focus on style, register, tone, structure & readability. My educational background provides me with the linguistic skills, while my vast experience of editing & producing my own published written work back these up, ensuring I offer an exceptional service throughout. Whether it's academic advice, content, curricula, editing & proofreading, or help with your novel that you require, I can help you perfect your language & make your project really stand out.
