I'm an expert English editor & proofreader for academic writing and fiction with 15 years-experience working for TAFE QLD and Freelancer. Accuracy with grammar, spelling, punctuation & sentence structure comes from my 20+ years teaching & marking English at the pre-uni level + my current freelancing. My natural skill in word usage has been honed by English double majors, a life-time of reading and life-long immersion in literature. 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. Track Changes inMicrosoft Word allows you to identify suggested changes & corrections. I like to chat about issues as I work so your creative ideas are fully realised and your work shines! My goal is to return to you on time a text you are delighted with. There are samples of my Track Changes work in my Portfolio.
