I am an editor who specializes in academic texts and EFL editing. I edit journal articles, theses, dissertations, and non-fiction books.

If you have substance but are lacking in style, clarity, or grammatical knowledge, then I'm the editor for you. I can help you get your  ideas across in an academic and coherent fashion. 

My Background 

I hold a BSc in Environmental Science and an MA in Human Geography, so I am multidisciplinary at heart. I have also taken many courses in writing and editing, and I'm currently completeting the Editing Certificate at Simon Fraser University. 

Additionally, I am a trained EFL/ESL teacher and got my start in editing by taking on projects for my students. If you are an ESL/EFL academic, I specialize in helping you! I know the common errorrs to watch out for, and I am always happy to offer feedback and advice on strenghtening your writing for future projects. 

My Services 

I offer a full slate of academic editing services, including developmental editing, stylistic editing, copyediting, and proofreading. Contact me for a no-obligation consulation to see which of my services may best suit where you are in the writing process.
