I specialize in editing theses, dissertations, and other academic documents in the arts and social sciences. I am most familiar with APA style (but regularly use others). As well, I can  rephrase in standard English, match up references and citations, reduce word count, format the document, and carry out other tasks that you require.

I edit non-fiction of all sorts and lengths, from a cover letter for a job application to a research anthology.

Knowledge and experience

My background is in education, second language (learning, teaching, and administration), and teacher education. I have a strong interest in history and other social sciences. I speak and write French well, and I have some knowledge of German and Thai.

I have carried out research with colleagues, advised thesis and project students, and instructed courses in educational research for Master of Education students.

I have experience writing (with others) curriculum documents. Most recently, I collaborated on the Foundation for Mi'kmaw Language.

Writing for academic credit?

If you are submitting the document for academic credit, your professor/supervisor/advisor must specify what tasks I can perform. Please see Guidelines for the Ethical Editing of Theses/Dissertations.

No surprises!

After you send me your document, I will do a short sample edit and provide a firm quote for the project. The final fee  may be lower than the quote (occasionally) but will never be higher.
