Favorite referencing style
APA referencing is my favorite style.
Why I became an editor
I am a primary school teacher with a love for reading and writing. While I was on maternity leave, I studied proofreading. It is the perfect job for me, as it combines my love of teaching and helping others with my passion for reading.
Background and experience
As a teacher, I am always checking and editing pupils’ work. I also teach the mechanics of English, so I have a good understanding of grammar. Another part of my role is to prepare reports that need to be grammatically accurate and written concisely.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love being able to help others (and their writing) be the best they can be. Proofreading documents is like a puzzle; working out what it needs to make it perfect.
My favorite book is Matilda by Roald Dahl. It was the book I loved to read as a child over and over again!
When I am not proofreading, I love spending time with my two children, baking, and gardening.
Part of my proofreading process is to read the piece aloud to help my mind focus on the meaning and order of the words.
