I'm expert at English editing & proofreading for both academic writing and fiction: grammar, sentence structure & document format. I have 15 years-experience for TAFE QLD and Freelancer. My savvy skill in word usage/choices is natural to me – but honed by English double majors, a life-time reading, life-long immersion in literature, 20-plus years teaching & marking English at the pre-uni level and my current Freelancer work. Love of and sensitivity to English imbue my work. Your intended audience and tone of voice are forefront as I correct & polish your text! Well-developed organisational skills and a professional work ethic support my work. Microsoft Word’s Track Changes allows you to identify suggested changes & corrections. I like to chat about issues as I work so your creative idea can be fully realised. I want your work to shine! My goal is to return your text to you on time - a text you are delighted with. Samples of my Track Changes work are in my Portfolio.
