What I do

I offer friendly, professional and confidential proofreading and proof-editing services to businesses, non-profit organisations, students and publishers.

Whatever your project – a document, report, leaflet, dissertation, short story or web content – I can check the content. No job is too small or inconsequential, and I do not judge. I am here to help, so please get in touch to discuss how I can help you.



I can work with documents in:

  • MS Word (track changes)
  • PDF (commenting tools)
  • Hard copy (BSI mark up)


Proofreading will focus on:

  • Spelling and typos
  • Punctuation
  • Grammar
  • Consistency
  • Layout


Checking can include:

  • Titles and body text
  • Headers and footers
  • Contents page and index
  • References/bibliography
  • Tables, illustrations and figures

Who am I?

I am a trained, professional and friendly proofreader and member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP). With a background in finance and a keen interest in the natural environment and sustainability, I love working on text to make it clear and accessible. I am reliable and trustworthy and will work hard to polish your work.


Projects will be priced in accordance with suggested CIEP minimum freelance rates and may be quoted per 1,000 words, by the hour or as a fixed sum. All documents are different, and the price will reflect the type of content along with the level of intervention and speed of turnaround required.

For me to understand your requirements it is helpful if you can provide as much detail as possible when you contact me, such as the word count, the deadline for return, the format of your document (e.g. Microsoft Word, PDF, paper) and the type of content (e.g. report, web content, thesis). I am happy to quote based on a sample extract of text, ideally taken from the middle of the document. For larger pieces of work I will offer a free sample proofread (up to 1,000 words).

Please get in touch for a free, no-obligation quote.
