About me
If you ever happen to need the services of a (native English speaker) proofreader for English texts (any variant), I would like to be of service to you.

I charge $0.02 (USD) per word for my proofreading service, which comprises the correction of grammar, spelling, punctuation, style, readability, and coherency.

Furthermore, localization into US, UK, or Canadian English (or any other variant) is an integral part of the service provided.

My CV is available here for your review and records.

Previously, I taught English at two universities.

I have been running my proofreading business for 17 years.

I complete all texts that are to be proofread on the same day that they are issued.

I am available from 6 am to 10 pm, 7 days a week, and 365 days per year.

My time zone is -05:00 GMT (Eastern Standard Time/New York).

I have 278 Proz WWA references (shown hereinabove) and 100 LinkedIn references (
