About Alan

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 capable, once given a task, of making sure it reaches its highest possible standard.

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 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

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
