Favorite referencing style

APA is the style I am most acquainted with.

Why I became an editor

Over the course of my careers in both teaching and research, I have learned that effective writing on any topic requires a grounding in the basics: accurate spelling, appropriate use of grammar, and correct punctuation. I chose to become a proofreader to further hone my skills in these areas, and I look forward to assisting others to produce their best work.

Background and experience

At Deakin Child Study Centre in Melbourne, Australia, I developed and edited content for education websites. I also wrote and edited content for research papers.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I enjoy suggesting ways for a piece of writing to realize its full potential. This, I believe, can be done by ensuring that the nuts and bolts of grammar are in place and the vocabulary and style aligns with the writer’s subject matter. I have studied in the fields of culture and performing arts, and as a result, I gained a sound knowledge of the academic style guides employed by these disciplines.

Editing tips:
