Do you want your writing to read like native English?

Are you unsure about some of the trickier points of grammar and punctuation?

Are you confused about different reference styles?


I specialise in proofreading and copy-editing academic work: essays, dissertations, theses and journal articles for publication. From the shortest text of 500 words to a 120,000 word thesis, professional proofreading will eliminate errors, ensure consistency and add a final polish to your work. I cover a wide variety of academic subjects including law, business studies, politics, economics, teaching, linguistics, social sciences, and computing.

I genuinely enjoy helping non-native speakers and writers of English polish and perfect their work, whilst maintaining their individual writing style. My weekly blog posts cover some of the more interesting features of the English language, tricky grammar points, or aspects of academic writing, and occasionally I’ll share a picture of the editor’s cat. Yes, if you were wondering – all editors have cats!

I can work with any particular referencing style or University guidelines, including APA, Harvard, Chicago, Oxford and OSCOLA. I have a degree in Law, so I’m fully conversant with the citation requirements of the OSCOLA referencing style – see these blog posts for some tips on using OSCOLA style.

I can also help with formatting your work using Word Styles, checking for consistency in layout, spacing and numbering.
