I have a degree in English and have worked as a proofreader and copy-editor since 2004. I am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders. I specialise in dissertations and theses, academic papers and books. I work in higher education alongside the business, and have done since 2002. I also teach at university level and travel to PR China annually to teach talented students hoping to study at British Russell Group universities.
Proofreading and copy-editing: every error in spelling, grammar and format is corrected, and (if requested) I also provide a detailed report with suggestions on how to address any recurring mistakes, as well as improving structure and tone. I will then work with you to improve your work as much as possible before submission/publication.
UCAS applications: I advise students writing their UCAS forms or preparing for an Oxbridge interview, and teachers and parents supporting students in these tasks. I am sufficiently good at this to be flown out to PR China every summer to work with students there. For British students, parents and staff, I can help write and edit Personal Statements, choose courses and universities, and conduct practice interviews, as well as preparing students for the other rigours of university life.
