** Proofreading/Editing **
– Does the grammar in your work pull down your grades?
– Are you unsure about how to use punctuation correctly?
– Is your work full of typos?
– Are you working in a second language and require an authoritative read-through by a qualified native speaker?
I am an experienced, qualified proofreader and editor. I work efficiently and thoroughly on every document I receive and have a minimum charge of just £10. I am happy to chat to you about your work and the service you’re looking for, what you are worried about in your writing and what needs to be improved. If you email me a Word document with up to 250 words of text, I can also undertake a sample edit free of charge that I will return to you as quickly as possible.
If you have any questions, just send me a message and I will get back to you with further information as quickly as possible. If you tell me the length of the work, I can send a quote and an estimated turn-around time.
It usually takes up to four days to complete an edit of 10-15,000 words and 24 hours for up to 3,000 words in the week. Faster turnarounds are sometimes available. Email to enquire.
** Tutoring **
Academic tutoring in essay and dissertation writing, assignment completion and essay and dissertation research for undergraduate and master’s students in arts and humanities subjects.
– Are you struggling with the academic workload at university?
– Unsure of how to approach a research project or an essay in an independent way?
– Finding difficulty transitioning to the style of working at either undergraduate or postgraduate level?
– Struggling to adapt to the method of university teaching in the UK?
This service is designed for those who find themselves struggling or overwhelmed at university, unsure of how to approach an independent research project, or experiencing difficulty adapting to the university style of study.
Generally, we will chat for one to two hours as often as you need to work on the project of your choice; this can be an essay, poster, presentation, dissertation or whatever you feel needs work. Alternatively, we can train your academic writing skills with pieces and short projects that I can set, building up your confidence as an independent researcher and academic writer.
I am happy to chat to you about your work on the phone free of charge before we begin, to work out if I can provide the service you’re looking for. Tutoring is all provided remotely, over Zoom, Google Hangouts or over the phone, combined with notes and feedback on your work. The cost of tutoring is £20 per hour.
If you have any questions, just send me a message and I will get back to you with further contact details and information as quickly as possible. Tell me exactly what you are looking for and I can quote a price and a time when we can begin working together.
** Writing Coaching **
Coaching for those who are in the process of writing. This service is generally designed for those who struggle to finish a project, or get lost in the middle, or those who know they have a book in them, but can’t quite seem to focus. We can work on books, short stories, articles, or even cover letters, proposals and engagement with the publishing industry.
I can provide suggestions, feedback and development, planning and encouragement at the early stage, redrafting, editing and proofreading at the late stage. Essentially, my skills as a tutor, editor, proofreader, indexer and writer are all at your disposal.
Coaching can take various forms and can be adapted to suit you. We can either chat on a regular basis, or you can simply send me your progress regularly and I will go over it and write up development suggestions and feedback, or a combination of the two. The cost is £20 per hour or £14 per 1,000 words.
