As the holder of a PhD in Social Sciences (blending history and cognitive science), I am well versed in the styles and expectations of academic writing, and can promise proofreading of the highest standard. I received a Distinction for my MA in Medieval Studies and First-class Honours for my BA in English. I have also been presented with awards for my work at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
If you have problems with your grammar, referencing or spelling in an essay, article, thesis, book or non-academic document, I can correct them. If you struggle with academic writing before writing begins and you would like some guidance regarding issues like structure or research, I can work with you to create a cohesive and professional document.
I am an award winning online journalist, having published articles in areas like travel writing, computer games and cinema. I am enthusiastic, hardworking and flexible enough to turn my hand to any subject, and my varied writing background means I can adapt easily to a new house style.
As a former secretary and carer for an elderly disabled professor, I am also a highly versed in transcribing, writing quickly and fluidly. My work there resulted in a published book called Language and Human Understanding.
My multidisciplinary academic background and journalistic background also makes me an excellent researcher and adaptable enough that I can gather data and create a report about any subject.
