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. I’ll cast an eagle eye over your punctuation, grammar and spelling, whether British or American English.

Publishers – I am skilled at identifying inconsistencies and cross-referencing 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.

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.

I am sure most writers will agree that having your creative writing edited is rather traumatic, but Alex made it comfortable for me. I knew she was on my side and was partnering with me to make the best version of my m/s possible. I’m extremely grateful for her hard work.
