"David helped me editing a 3,800 travel piece that I intend to publish on some specialist websites. His work was exceptional and he delivered with great professionalism. He was also very responsive throughout the entire project when I had questions, something I really appreciated. I enjoyed working with him and would recommend him to anyone who needs help with proofreading and copyediting."
- Giacomo G.
With a first class degree in English literature, you can hire me with total confidence for: * PROOFREADING & EDITING - Academic theses and dissertations, commercial text, eBooks, novels and any other English text. Track Changes is used with MS Word documents to clearly indicate any alterations made and to provide comments in the margin. * WRITING - Effective Google-compliant SEO articles and website copy, engaging blog posts and eBooks, enticing product descriptions, etc. My 'REPEAT HIRE' rate is DOUBLE THE AVERAGE. Here's why: * 100% ORIGINAL WRITING - Perfect UK or American English with no plagiarism * RELIABILITY & QUALITY - 100% on time and on budget, always delivered to a 5* standard * PERSONAL SERVICE - Only I will be working directly with you and only I will be doing the work * FIRST-CLASS COMMUNICATION - Because I don't work as part of a team, I can update you on the progress of your project any time you want to know.
