Hi, I specialise in proofreading and editing academic and business documents.
Recent proofreading jobs include: Masters and PhD theses; international conference papers; academic articles; chapters of a book; various case studies and assignments; and a novel.
Subject areas include: medicine, nursing, chemistry, physics, oceanography, engineering, finance, mathematics, geography, history, politics, marketing, sociology, design, architecture, social work, education, linguistics, tourism, music, law, cultural anthropology, and religion (Islam, Christianity).
I’m a native speaker of English from New Zealand, with qualifications in diverse areas – English (MA), chemistry (BSc), religious studies (MA), and teaching English as a second Language (DipTESL).
I have worked in educational and technical roles in New Zealand, Asia and the Middle East for more than 20 years. I have also worked full-time as an editor of technical manuals and other publications about consumer and industrial products.
This expert knowledge and experience allows me to provide you with a highly professional, yet personal, proofreading service.
I will check for, and comment on:
* word choice
* citations & references (APA, Harvard, Chicago, etc., if required).
Documents are usually edited using Microsoft Word's Track Changes feature allowing all changes, and comments, to be readily seen.
Based in Auckland, New Zealand. Confidential service. Email 2 or 3 pages of your document for a free, no-obligation quotation (email@example.com). Rate for proofreading is generally $US8 to $US20 per 1000 words.
