I live in France part of the time and part of the time in Britain. However I AM DEFINITELY BRITISH and I AM AVAILABLE 7 DAYS A WEEK! If you want 100% error-free work and English of the highest quality, you can see that I have exceptionally high passes for UK TOP LEVEL 2 ENGLISH and ACADEMIC WRITING, as well as 98% for TOP LEVEL 3 US ENGLISH, the combination of which guarantees your project will be completed to a 5* standard. I have not have been with Freelancer as long as some, but I have over 300 projects all completed at an average 5* rating as that is the only standard you should accept. Short proofreading and editing projects, if urgent, can be returned within 4 hours. Please ask me for a turnaround time for larger projects - you might be pleasantly surprised! As a published writer with a very good understanding of writing styles and methods which I find particularly useful for editing novellas and novels from first-time writers. I am always happy to include a useful critique with my work. I also find I enjoy proofreading and editing for writers who are not native English speakers. My guarantee is that your copy will be 100% error-free and that edits, where necessary, will ensure your work reads perfectly. From a one page letter to a 100 page thesis, every project awarded is appreciated and dealt with on an individual one-to-one basis - I never subcontract my work for others to do. Click on 'Hire Me' and drop me a line to say hello - you'll usually find me at my desk 7 days a week and I always respond promptly to messages. Thank You.
