Ensuring clarity and effectiveness for your writing

I am a fully qualified academic proofreader, with experience of working on a wide range of materials. I have proofread PhD theses in a range of humanities and social science subjects – from conflict transformation in Indonesia through to Śrīvidyā goddess worship in South India; from the politics of burlesque to the politics of peacebuilding in Nigeria – and many more. I offer professional, friendly and personalised editorial support to:

  • students and academics
  • writers in ESL/EFL, international students and academics
  • independent authors
  • publishers
  • organisations and charities

By checking your text for errors and suggesting amendments to improve flow and presentation, I can reduce your workload when you are producing written material for submission at university or for journal publication, and help to hone your research proposals, articles and reports.

My conscientious and committed approach will help you to produce writing you can be confident about submitting or publishing.

I am a Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) and abide by their Code of Practice. You can view my profile on the CIEP directory here.

I am also listed on the register of approved proofreaders for Royal Holloway, University of London and for Sheffield Hallam University.
