We have native English editors and proofreaders, including PhDs, MAs, MScs and active researchers, working to make your English perfect. Their specialisms are wide-ranging and their experience varied. Meet a few of them:
After a PhD in Biological Sciences from the University of London, Joelle moved into science communication and administration. She worked for 10 years for the UK Government’s Food Standards Agency, where (amongst other things) she developed and managed a world leading programme of scientific research on food allergy and immunology. She has published scientific and technical papers in peer-reviewed journals, acted as a reviewer of draft manuscripts and research grant applications, and edited many manuscripts, technical reports, abstracts and other types of science based communication documents. Since starting a family Joelle has become a freelance professional scientific writer, editor and proofreader, with particular interests in the food sciences, nutrition, general and preventive medicine, clinical research, biology and environmental sciences. She is passionate about communicating clear, accurate, evidence based science.
With a multicultural and multilingual upbringing spanning Belgium, Spain, the US and the UK, I have always been passionate about languages and the written word. I am a law graduate of both University College London and the London School of Economics, and so I am well placed to edit and proofread legal content, which I have done both as a freelancer and for an international firm. I have experience in editing historical and geological texts, as well as proofreading copy for businesses. My interests include technology, music, philosophy and current affairs.
I have been a script editor and development executive in film and television for over fifteen years; editing, proofreading and developing hundreds of scripts, beat documents and long-form treatments for the BBC, ITV and Channel 5 in the UK. I have a BA in English from the University of London, am a freelance editor and spend more time reading than almost anything else.
A graduate in English Literature from Cambridge, I was a lecturer at Prague’s Charles University for four years. I have also taught English in countries as diverse as Ecuador, Greece and Saudi Arabia. I have been proofreading academic texts full-time for over three years. I have a real love of the language and have edited work from every possible discipline. I have recently written a novel set in the north of England.
I am a Literature and History PhD candidate at the University of Hull. I have a strong academic background and experience editing papers and dissertations within this context. I have always had a passion for the written word and enjoy reading popular and academic texts. I was awarded University of Washington’s Popular Fiction Certificate, and through this have experience editing novels and plays.
After a long and rewarding career as a head teacher and with a background in science, I have begun to edit commercial copy, novels and most recently a Ph.D. thesis about the German philosopher and botanist, Schleiden. I have always enjoyed teaching English as a second language.
