With over 30 years’ experience in publishing and education worldwide, I am your flexible, approachable and creative wordsmith. Let me help you communicate your ideas in clear English.
Publishers – I have the skills to identify inconsistencies and cross-reference all the elements of your language learning materials.
Creative writers – I offer a fresh pair of eyes to help you achieve your original intention.
Students – Let me tidy up your paragraphs and reword phrases to help the reader follow your arguments.
Companies – Let me cast an eagle eye over your reports. I will follow your style guide and spot those easy-to-miss typos and omissions.
I hold a master’s degree in education and am a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading. I’m a Spanish speaker with a long history of international experience.
Do you need me to tidy up your blog, creative writing or thesis? I can sensitively re-phrase your words so that they flow more naturally for the reader. I’m a fan of plain-English editing, but equally at home with an extensive vocabulary range and complex sentence structures.
Do you need me to check your punctuation, grammar and spelling? I can review your documents at short notice, improving overall readability and accuracy.
Do you need me to write your English language learning materials? I have wide experience in writing teacher guides, student books and workbooks for all levels.
