What I can do for you:

  • I find typos, spelling errors, punctuation and grammar issues in documents.
  • I help to make your sentences easier to read.
  • I help with shaping your documents into a more clear and understandable form when English is your second language.

For students, I offer special student rates, and my proofreading can get your academic documents up to a higher standard for marking. I understand university requirements; I have a Masters degree in Public History.

My service covers:

  • Typos
  • Punctuation
  • Spelling
  • Grammar
  • Use of tense
  • Awkward, wordy, unclear expressions or sentence structure
  • Missing or repeated words
  • Consistency
  • Checking reference and citation styles
  • Suggestions for clear English that is easy to read. This is particularly useful for clients whose second language is English.

My Rates

  • Up to 1000 words: $4 per 100 words, student rate $3 per 100 words
  • Over 1000 words: $36 an hour full rate, student rate $26.
  • Free quotes, no GST
  • For theses and manuscripts, email me 4 or 5 pages of your document for a free quote and free sample edit.

How I provide you with feedback:

I mainly use Microsoft Word's Track Changes feature. I also insert comments for suggestions or clarity. This is so you can easily see all changes and comments.

If you do not like Track Changes I can offer alternate methods of feedback.

I have over ten years of proofreading experience with:

  • Theses
  • Research essays
  • Academic essays
  • Journal publications
  • Manuscripts
  • Brochures
  • Press Releases
  • Advertising
  • Websites
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Business Reports
  • Resumes and cover letters

    Outstanding service. Highly recommended for all your proofreading and copy-editing needs. Briony really improved my manuscripts and took them to the next level.

    I wish that my review needs no proofreading! :) I approached Briony to proofread my thesis and she is very thorough, quick, reasonable and a very good reader. I would say, in future reports, she is my number one person to call with no hesitation. A++++++++
