I am a full-time freelance proofreader who specialises in editing British English. After having worked in a number of administrative roles over the years, I began proofreading part-time in 2014, and I now concentrate on proofreading as a full-time career.
I have enjoyed great success on a popular online freelancers’ platform, and I am now looking to expand my portfolio of clients, working with companies and individuals on a more one-to-one basis.

Freelance Proofreader - Proofreading a wide variety of text including works of fiction, academic papers, educational material, website copy and reports, I have worked for several years now via a popular online freelancers’ platform.

I also work with a team of health and safety expert witnesses, again based in Doncaster. This entails the proofreading of expert witness reports prior to cases being held in court.
