Favorite referencing style
APA is my favorite, as I am the most familiar with it.
Why I became an editor
I am passionate about reading and writing, and I love the English language. I have always enjoyed helping my school friends with their English, and I eventually became an English teacher.
Background and experience
I taught business English for 13 years, I am a certified translator and interpreter between English and Serbian, and I have some experience proofreading for agencies (academic proofreading) and individuals (children's books and short stories).
Why I love proofreading and editing
I enjoy proofreading academic texts and fiction, I am curious by nature, and I enjoy reading about the sciences and humanities. Proofreading allows me to gain new knowledge in various fields. I have some experience with APA and Harvard referencing.
My favorite books are anything by P.G. Wodehouse or Terry Pratchett.
My hobbies include singing (badly), seeing friends, swimming, gardening, cooking, dancing, learning languages, playing chess, and learning random stuff.
I find checklists very helpful.
