I have an extensive record of accomplishment in providing high-quality editing and proofreading services as both a contractor and an employee. I have provided these services full-time as a contractor for seven years and as one of my job duties for previous employers. My attention to detail, high level of conscientiousness, knowledge of major style guides, and excellent understanding of English grammar make me an ideal editor and proofreader.

Throughout my editing and proofreading career, I have worked on a wide variety of documents in many different disciplines, including informal documents, business communications, website copy, student essays and papers, fiction, technical documents, and academic papers for publication. I am confident that, through my work, I have helped clients get jobs, attract customers to their websites, get better grades on college papers, get academic papers published in peer-reviewed journals, and improve their English writing skills. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to help your clients do the same.
