- Do you want your writing to be taken seriously?
- Do you want to avoid the embarrassment of mortifying spelling and grammatical mistakes before you launch your information product?
- Do you want the writing on your website to be the best it can be?
You need a proofreader. Although spellcheck has come on a long way it is still not psychic. This means that it does not know if what you have written makes sense or if you have typed ‘hat’ when you meant ‘bat’, or if you meant ‘hair’ when you wrote ‘hare’.
It can be incredibly difficult to spot errors in our own writing even when we know – and understand how to apply – complex and nuanced grammatical and spelling rules. A proofreader looks at a piece of writing with a fresh eye, as well as specialist knowledge and skills, so can help you to maximise the effectiveness of your content.
I am an experienced and skilled proofreader and editor. When you hire me to proofread or edit your work, I will correct the spelling and grammar within the document. I will also make sure that your words flow well and conform to professional standards, rewording any awkward sentences or phrasing.
I will proofread your:
- sales page
- white paper
- business report
- resume / CV
- covering letter
- job application
- any other written document.
Proofreading / Copyediting Rates

Fees may be revised depending on the deadline and amount of editing involved. Contact me and we can discuss options.
I offer proofreading services to students at a reduced rate, mainly because I remember being one myself. I also offer the same price reductions to non-profit organisations because it’s the right thing to do.
