About this pro
pavEDITa is a very responsive and timely proofreader. If you feel good with basic issues in your writing (e.g., grammar, word choices, structures, etc.,), she would be very helpful to check the clarity and make your sentences naturally American. Plus, if you need the edits back in a short time, she is a right one of your choices. I highly recommend her.Apr 26, 2018Verified
Pavita Singh helped me with the final edits of my novel Acadia. She has hawk-like eyes when it comes to spotting grammatical mistakes! She has a very strong understanding of grammatical rules, knowledge how to create solid plot points, and a great sense of how to create emotional depth. She is passionate as well as knowledgeable, a perfect combination for a great editor. Her help was very much appreciated!Sep 22, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?For copy and line editing: 1 cent per word For developmental editing: 1.25 cents per word Minimum $15 Estimates may change from initial quotes based on the amount of editing I have to do, and I try to be as upfront as possible should this be the case. I'm always willing to work within clients' budgets.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First I try to understand exactly what they'd like to get out of their work with me. Are they looking for content editing? Copy editing? Both? I have them email me their drafts, and then I send my redlined versions back to them. We repeat this process as many times as needed until the customer is satisfied. I make it a point to stay in touch with customers even after a project is completed.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Master in Public Health in Social & Behavioral Sciences from Yale University.
