Why I became an editor
I majored in Botany at university, which also had Zoology, English, and History of Science as minor subjects. Reading, especially fiction and poetry, had always been a passion, but it took me a while to learn that I enjoy studying and teaching English. So, I went on to complete my master's degree in English Literature. I am an IELTS trainer and a blogger now.
Background and experience
I proofread a Ph.D. thesis in Computer Science in 2019.
Why I love proofreading and editing
Proofreading is something that, I now realize, I have been doing for years, albeit on a very small level. Correcting essays written by my students as an IELTS trainer added to this habit, and therefore, choosing to pursue proofreading seemed like a natural next step.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
If not proofreading, I’m probably writing, reading, teaching, cooking, spending time with my kids, scrolling through Twitter, or just lazing around thinking that I should be doing one of those things.
I work with a personal checklist that I have prepared that includes the aspects (such as quotation marks) that I personally struggle with.
