Customers rated this pro highly for work quality, punctuality, and responsiveness.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I charge $40 an hour and $35 an hour for full-time students. For clients who request an estimate, I edit three to five pages to determine how long it will take me.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I ask new customers what level of editing they're looking for and whether there's anything specific that they'd like me to do. Some people are very specific about what they're looking for: they want me to maintain their voice or they don't want me to; they want me to make their writing less wordy; they want me to pay special attention to certain passages or transitions. I customize my edits in accordance with their requirements.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a doctorate in philosophy from the University of Toronto and have published a book, Wittgenstein's Account of Truth, and several scholarly and popular articles. My writing skills enable me to improve the style of the manuscripts I edit. I've also taken proofreading and copyediting courses at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education.
