Hi,

My name is Alan and I am a graduate of the Creative Writing MSc in Edinburgh, Scotland. I also have a BA in History and Economics. I am currently based in Oakland and am willing to proofread and edit. I can also tutor in writing. I am a hard worker with a keen eye and ear for grammar and I am extremely focused, once given a task, on getting it done to the highest standards.

I have previous experience in proofreading and editing documents, essays and assignments ranging from college applications to PhD theses to technical content for businesses. I am comfortable in doing this for all forms of writing whether academic, professional or personal/literary. If you feel I am the right person to perform this for you then let me know! I'm also very friendly and love to help out.

Best regards,
Alan
