Due to my location, many people are doubtful about my language skills. However, I have been verified as a native English speaker (with expert status) by the Duolingo Test Center; I grew up with US English and was educated in UK English, so I can easily work with both. I've collaborated with numerous British, North American and Australian clients, from whom I’ve received excellent feedback.

Not only do I correct spelling and grammar, but I also ensure consistency in style, tone, and structure. Furthermore, if necessary or required by you, I will rephrase/rewrite sentences. Each punctuation mark, word and paragraph is carefully reviewed for readability; and I always keep your target audience in mind when proofreading and editing. Additionally, I am more than happy to provide suggestions / constructive criticism for your content. I have worked on various texts: • Government bids, grants proposals, and corporate documents; • Academic works (essays, dissertations, theses); • Scientific articles and papers (published in PNAS), and technical reports; • Ebooks and printed books; • Websites, blog posts, and social media marketing materials; • Business plans and presentations; • CVs, resumes and personal statements; • Catalogues, emails, letters, and more. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Writing* I can research and write on almost any subject, for both online and offline platforms: news articles; blog and social media posts; emails, letters, marketing materials, etc. I usually don’t offer ghostwriting services.
