Humans are better at catching errors.

There have been many strides in automated writing systems, including spell check and grammar check. However, with the difficulties in the English language, such as words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings (e.g. their, there, they’re), having a human proofread or edit is a better option. I take pride in delivering quality documents on time, if not early.


Below are the services I currently offer. I’m always open to new experiences, so please ask if you don’t see exactly what you need.
