I was a university lecturer / English teacher for 10 years; I am now a freelance writer and editor. I have a Master's in English and Linguistics & have worked as a proofreader and editor for several online publications, as well as a private editor for novels, academic publications & corporate documents for a range of companies & individuals around the world. I offer an unrivalled knowledge of English; grammar, spelling & punctuation of course, but also a strong focus on style, register, tone, structure & readability. My educational background provides me with the linguistic skills, while my vast experience of editing & producing my own published written work back these up, ensuring I offer an exceptional service throughout. Whether it's academic advice, content, curricula, editing & proofreading, or help with your novel that you require, I can help you perfect your language & make your project really stand out.

    “Simon did a fantastic job in editing and proofreading my songs for kids. During editing some verses for my target audience, he kept focus on the rhyming, which was very important for me. The final output was fantastic and perfectly suitable for the kids. His communication was also perfect and prompt. He delivered the job in the promised time. Looking forward to hiring him again.”

    “Simon was such an amazing pleasure to work with! Not only was he a very skilled and knowledgeable editor, but he was an amazing communicator who relayed any concerns with the upmost professionalism! He was also very respectful of the language of the work and made sure every change he suggested was fitting of that style, a mighty task indeed for this silly middle school book series. I would work with Simon again in a heartbeat and am actually inspired to write more so I can share more with him! :)”

    “Simon did proofreading and editing for my 75,000 word novel. He was very accommodating , flexible ,and knowledgeable. He obviously is skilled regarding managing the proofreading and editing piece but his knowledge of history was a big plus. I'm very grateful for his feedback and expertise on my project , would definitely recommend him if you want an experienced professional .”
