Favorite referencing style
APA is the style I am most acquainted with.
Why I became an editor
Over the course of my careers in both teaching and research, I have learned that effective writing on any topic requires a grounding in the basics: accurate spelling, appropriate use of grammar, and correct punctuation. I chose to become a proofreader to further hone my skills in these areas, and I look forward to assisting others to produce their best work.
Background and experience
At Deakin Child Study Centre in Melbourne, Australia, I developed and edited content for education websites. I also wrote and edited content for research papers.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I enjoy suggesting ways for a piece of writing to realize its full potential. This, I believe, can be done by ensuring that the nuts and bolts of grammar are in place and the vocabulary and style aligns with the writer’s subject matter. I have studied in the fields of culture and performing arts, and as a result, I gained a sound knowledge of the academic style guides employed by these disciplines.
The Tree of Man by Patrick White is my favorite book.
I enjoy walking in nature.
Initially, I read the text to identify its style. This enables me to suggest the most appropriate grammar and vocabulary.
