Academic Mania 

I am a writer by profession and avocation. I have been proofreading for 9 years and writing for publication since I was in high school. I started proofreading for my uncle, who was a writer, when I was in elementary school. I am familiar with medical terminology and have done medical proofreading as well as having wide general knowledge. I have edited my own monthly newsletter for bereaved parents for the last nine years, and on the side have edited and proofread class assignments, term papers, final papers and theses for seminary, university and post-university students includin g those who are non-native English writers. I have lived in London and am fluent in English. I have proofread web pages and have seen too many others that needed it. I like the flow of language and good writing, including poetry, and enjoy using my skills to maximize the clarity and impact of what others write. A paper, web page, project or poem should communicate clearly the message that you want to leave with your reader. Misspelled words, misused words, typographical errors, redundancy and inconsistent formatting detract from your work. I will fine-tune your written document, poem, web page or other written piece so that nothing distracts the reader from your message

  • image of DragonUk Final Year Dissertation/Report $330.00 USD

    “This freelancer agreed upon a certain time frame and didn't deliver a finished product. The assignment was copy and pasted from the internet and has a plagiarism score of around 70 percent which is very high. I had to stay up the whole night and change everything. I did the whole dissertation in 1 night. This person had approximately 16-17 days to complete the task. I was not impressed.”
