Favorite referencing style
APA is my favorite, as the citations flow nicely in the text.
Why I became an editor
For me, proofreading pulls together several threads in my life: a background in language and linguistics, a recent return to academia where I have honed my essay writing and referencing skills, a love of reading, and an inability to read a book without noticing any errors!
Background and experience
I studied French and Spanish at university and learned Italian from my Sardinian husband. I taught English as a foreign language in Spain before returning to the UK where I worked as an administrator, tourist information assistant, dyslexia support worker, and volunteer translator for Bristol Link with Nicaragua. I currently work as a library assistant in Bristol's public libraries alongside raising my family, and I recently returned to university to study for a postgraduate diploma.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love helping an author to have the best success at reaching their audience. You have the story to tell, I want to help you tell it. Due to my background in learning foreign languages, I am drawn to proofreading texts written in English by non-native speakers. I am experienced in academic referencing, particularly Harvard and APA.
