Proofreading & Editing at its best



Proofreading Services

Despite being British, I am thoroughly conversant with UK/US/Canadian/Australian spelling and grammar conventions.

For proofreading work I complete the following checks:

* Plagiarism validation
* Spelling
* Grammar:
   * Tense usage
   * Singular/plural inconsistencies
   * Punctuation
   * Repetitive words
   * Correct capitalisation
   * Sentence structure - dangling modifiers etc.
   * Missing articles
* Word spacing is correct
* Sentence flow & vocabulary
* Title page is present
* The table of contents is correctly formatted
* Page breaks are in the correct format
* Copyright information is present
* Bullets are checked for standard usage
* Bolding/italics are verified
* Fonts are standard including sizes
* Blank pages are verified
* Any tabs usage is verified
* Garbage characters are removed
* Separated words are connected
* Words split between pages are connected

In addition to the above checks, I will also provide editing suggestions for improved vocabulary and readability.
