Native English speaker, proofreader, editor, teacher of English, and graphic designer. ✓ Quality work and timely delivery ✓ Unlimited revisions at no extra charge ✓ More than 17 years' experience ✓ 20/24 communication and quick response to every client no matter what his or her time zone. My perfect grammar and my natural command of the language allow me to ensure that your web site, application, blog, email, academic thesis, instruction manual or whatever is clear, concise and error-free. As a creative individual I edit marketing text, web copy, dialogues for games, video scripts and more so that they are never generic, often amusing and always engaging. I’m equally at home with British, Australian and American English. GRAPHIC DESIGN (custom artwork): brochures, flyers, leaflets, books (cover, page layout, pre-press), etc. I was born in England, in Grantham, I went to school in Cambridge and university in Leeds and graduated with a BA (Hons) degree.
