I am a freelance proofreader and copy editor, and a qualified, non-teaching, teacher of MFL. I speak German fluently, and French to A-Level. I also have experience teaching RE and PSHE. I am familiar with academic work, having successfully completed two degrees: a BA (Hons) in German and Media Studies (2:i) and a BSC (Hons) in Psychology (2:i).
I can proofread for:
Website content and marketing materials
School materials for KS1-4, and other training materials
HE and FE institutions
Fiction books of all kinds
Magazine and newspaper articles
I am an Entry-Level member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), trained by The Writers’ Bureau, Manchester.
I can work onscreen, using MS Word Tracked Changes, or directly onto hard copy. For publishers, I can use proofreading symbols (hard copy or on-screen).
My background as a teacher, and my working from home, provides flexibility, a confidence that I can keep to deadlines, a guarantee of confidentiality, use plain English , follow my client’s instructions and produce accurate work.
