I'm an expert in English grammar, sentence & document structure, and academic English writing. I've had 10 years of editing & proofreading university entrance level texts for TAFE QLD - plus my more recent work for Freelancer. My high standards in assessing word usage/choices come from 20-plus years teaching & marking English at the pre-uni level. My work is imbued with a love of and sensitivity to English, after uni English double majors and a life-time reading. Plot lines, character & vividness are vital. I correct & polish text keeping your intended audience in mind. I love to get it right! My work benefits from my organisational skills and professional work ethic. I had 10 years managing a team at TAFE. I use Microsoft Word’s Track Changes, so you can easily identify suggested changes & corrections - and accept them or not. My goal is to deliver on time a text you are delighted with. My portfolio shows samples of my work using Track Changes.
