Services

Proofreader

  • Part time

Summary:

I teach Academic Skills and proofread academic papers at the University of Birmingham (undergraduate and post-graduate academic essays and dissertations). I proofread these essays and dissertations on a micro- or macro- level, according to the requirements of the student’s course. I am entirely competent with all requirements of a successful academic paper – from the cohesion and coherence of its ideas to its micro-aspects – sentence-structure, grammar, spelling, punctuation and referencing requirements. I am familiar with more than one referencing system, although I proofread mostly papers with Harvard referencing. I have a flawless command of the English language and my academic vocabulary functions on a very high level. I have a very fine eye for detail and am able to detect even minute inaccuracies. All this makes me a highly competitive proofreader. My abilities and experience help me work at an exceptional speed – I can proofread a 80.000 words PhD dissertation within 7 days. I have never exceeded deadlines, set by clients, and have added exceptional quality to my services as well.

I am very professional with my work, meeting deadlines and relating to clients. I have never had a negative feedback. My services have been continuously sought for by the same clients, because of their high professionalism and competitiveness. I have expanded my clientele through much word-of-mouth recommendation.

I then proofread these essays and dissertations on a micro- or macro- level, according to the requirements of the student’s course. I am entirely competent with all requirements of a successful academic paper – from the cohesion and coherence of its ideas to its micro-aspects – sentence-structure, grammar, spelling, punctuation and referencing requirements. I am familiar with more than one referencing system, although I proofread mostly papers with Harvard referencing. I have a flawless command of the English language and my academic vocabulary functions on a very high level. I have a very fine eye for detail and am able to detect even minute inaccuracies.

I also edited 2 children’s books and co-authored one. I had very good reviews of the editing/translations from the publishers and the customers. Translating within deadlines helped me develop quick thinking and excellent Word processing skills, as well as increasing my cognitive ability of ‘switching’ between languages. I have great eye for detail and exceptional literacy skills, which make me a very effective translator or both fiction and non-fiction texts.
