PROOFREADING AND COPY-EDITING SERVICES
I am a freelance proofreader and copy-editor. I hold a Certificate in Proofreading and Editing with the College of Media and Publishing (CMP) and a Certificate in Proofreading Theses and Dissertations with the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) of which I am an entry level member. I also obtained a BA (Hons) French Studies at the University of Portsmouth and speak and write French to Level C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) .
I proofread and copy-edit text, enhancing the quality of English and ensuring that sentences read clearly and fluently. With a background in academic studies, I have a particular interest in proofreading coursework and dissertations for undergraduates, and copy-editing theses, research proposals and research papers for postgraduates and PhD students. My main subject interests are: history; philosophy; economics; politics; literature; linguistics and modern foreign languages. My services are particularly valuable to foreign students with difficulties expressing themselves in written English.
With experience in proofreading and copy-editing websites and other documents, I also offer my services to individuals and businesses.
