Proofreading/Editing Experience and Qualifications

I've worked with marketing materials, academic writing and personal statements. Notable projects include an EU report on early childhood education, a PhD on the effects of land concessions on local cultures in Laos, and a master's thesis about poverty-reduction programs in Nepal.

My main professional interests are education, sociology, anthropology and public policy. 


I offer proofreading and editing services. Proofreading focuses on the words on the pages - grammar, syntax, meaning, consistency and clarify. The language of the paper is perfected.

Editing moves beyond the words to check the work itself. Does it accomplish the author's goal? Is it appropriate for its audience? Is the paper's flow optimal?

Personal Message

Hi! I'm Amanda. I bring a variety of experiences to my proofreading work, including five years as an ESL teacher, nine years of living abroad in different cultures, and a bachelor's degree in mass communication. I particularly enjoy working with scholars who are writing articles, essays or personal statements.


I am available on short notice (at least two days) for one project at a time. Longer texts will require more time.
