I proofread academic documents for research students from across the UK, and have been one myself. I also use my proofreading skills in other areas. I am an evaluation researcher and spend time on data gathering and analysis plus authoring, editing and proofreading reports, as well as administration and co-ordination for a company which evaluates major arts projects. I am also a private tutor for primary school age children including those learning English as an Additional Language.
I graduated with a BSc in Environmental Biology and worked in conservation before doing a Postgraduate Certificate in Education and becoming a primary teacher. I studied for an MA in Museum Studies in 2012, and researched and wrote a dissertation on visitor responses to the ‘London, Sugar and Slavery’ exhibition at the Museum of London Docklands. Following this, I worked as a research assistant for various clients, researching and reporting on areas such as community engagement project outcomes, civic engagement studies and visitor survey data. I have also undertaken further training with the Society of Editors and Proofreaders (and, currently, on the further reaches of Microsoft Office).
Some of my own interests include conservation, photography, visitor studies and history. I very much enjoy learning and am always happy to read about new subjects – including yours.
