I'm Nick: a highly trained proofreader and an ex-teacher of English as a Foreign Language, ideally qualified to proofread your document, manuscript, website, academic assignment or paper.
My training as a proofreader was to the highest level available in the U.K. with the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, culminating in their one-on-one mentorship programme. I subsequently undertook further training in copy-editing with the SfEP in order to enable myself to deal with editorial issues peripheral to pure proofreading.
Prior to becoming a proofreader, I worked as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language for many years in Barcelona, Spain. My spelling and my grasp of grammar and syntax are consequently of the highest order.
I'm also a writer of fiction with several consultancies with The Literary Consultancy in London, developing over an extended period of time a feel for the expressive, communicative power of language over and above the nuts and bolts of spelling, grammar and syntax.
A writer and a serial bookworm, text is my medium, and I thrive on the challenge of proofreading - spotting those elusive misspellings, those deceptive homophones, those points of punctuation that really won't do - and the opportunities inherent in editing - replacing serviceable words with more telling ones, fine-tuning phrases, knocking the kinks out of awkward sentences, clarifying meaning, argument and intent. Why not entrust your text with me, and allow me to transform it?
Very quick turnaround. Very helpful and good communication. Would definitely recommend and use again. Thanks!!
My pleasure, Zerrne ... and thanx.
Nick has done a fantastic and thorough job for us and comes highly recommended. We hope to work with him again at some point in the future.
