Academic Proofreading

Does your assignment, dissertation or thesis need proofreading? I offer a friendly, personal, supportive service for UK-based and international students, wherever you are from.

Bournemouth based, I can work with you however suits you. If you are in the local area that can involve personal meetings, or if you prefer everything can be done by phone and email. If you are at a college or university further away then we can work exclusively by phone and online.

Academic Background

As a graduate of King’s College London as well as a former school teacher (I studied for my Post Graduate Certificate in Education – PGCE – at the University of Sussex) and teacher of English as a Foreign Language I know all sides of the academic world.

I was a school teacher before becoming an editor and writer, and have strong connections with the Bournemouth & Poole educational and literary world. I helped establish Bournemouth University’s worldwide New Media Writing Prize. In 2010 I was deeply involved with Bournemouth University in launching the Poole Literary Festival.

More recently, working with BU and the Jane Goodall Institute UK, I organised the Bournemouth Jane Goodall Day at Bournemouth University Talbot Campus. This was a celebration Dr Jane Goodall, DBE’s life and work – the Bournemouth based global environmental campaigner and United Nations Messenger of Peace – who revolutionised our understanding of primates with her study of wild chimpanzees in Gombe, Tanzania. (See more about my work with Dr Goodall here.)


My rates are by agreement based on your needs. Every job is different and depending on what suits best, rates can be negotiated by the hour, day, page, or as a set price for a particular service.
