Favorite referencing style

APA referencing is great. I love how it has its own quirky set of rules!

Why I became an editor

Having worked as an English teacher for over 20 years, I have been proofreading and editing for most of my life! I love the satisfaction I get from helping someone to make the most of their hard work: your ideas, not your mistakes, should be what make an impression.

Background and experience

As a teacher for over 20 years, I have worked with thousands of young people. My role encompassed working with both fiction and non-fiction writing, such as creative writing and university applications. I have also worked as an examiner, so I am used to working against deadlines. As a freelance proofreader, I have worked on several academic undergraduate theses, as well as the program for an internationally known sporting event and several websites.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I love the sense of privilege that comes with proofreading. Being entrusted with someone's precious job application, website material, or thesis carries a real responsibility, but it is so satisfying to help somebody achieve their very best outcome.

Favorite book:

I love crime fiction. Elly Griffiths is my current go-to author. She writes engaging plots with an evocative sense of place and super characters.


When I'm not proofreading, you will probably find me out walking my two dogs or tucked up on the sofa with a good book (or crossword) and a mug of tea!

Editing tips:

Using the search function is invaluable as a timesaver, and an extra pair of eyes can help spot regular errors.
