  • image of Azadeh J. English proofreading €15.00 EUR

    “I had very pleasant experience working with Julie, she is a qualified and experienced proofreader, Julie delivered her work on time and satisfactory. Julie read my text not only for proofreading, but also she asked very interesting questions about the topic and it fantastically helped me to understand how the readers who are not expert in the subject of my manuscript understand the subject matter. I will definitely work with her for my future proofreading project.”

    “Not a good fit. From my experience working with Julie for a short time, she was very argumentative and did not follow directions. I spent money, wasted a lot of time, and need to pay another editor to do the work that was never completed. Whatever the reason, I hope Julie learns from this and considers the business owner's perspective next time.”

    “I needed to proofread my website with a very short deadline and Julie turned out to be an absolute life saver! Despite the fact, that it was very small project with a low budget, she was very communicative, proactive and the quality of the delivered work was outstanding. I really enjoyed working with her and I'm sure I'll ask her for her help again in the future again.”

Experience

Freelance Editor, Proofreader, Writer

Feb 2016

I have been working as a freelance editor, proofreader and writer at Upwork dot com and have earned a 100% Job Success Score and the Top Rated Award. I edit print books, e-books, textbooks, academic papers, academic journal articles, marketing materials, reports, and web pages. I also proofread PhD dissertations. I will write, edit, or proofread web content and edit/proofread blog posts. I helped a PhD candidate to write his dissertation, as English is not his native language.
