Need someone who can put an apostrophe in its place?

Someone who's fast, thorough and reliable with a healthy respect for deadlines?

As well as punctuation, I'll mark any spelling and grammar problems, make sure styles (headings, bullets etc) are used consistently throughout your document and I'll offer suggestions if something could read a little better.

bulletNeed it now?

Same day? Next day? Not a problem.

bulletSoft or hard copy?

I can track changes in Word or print and mark up a PDF, scan it and email it to you.

I can also proofread website copy and provide a document detailing suggested changes, and I can edit and format PowerPoint presentations.

bulletNeed someone experienced, with a great track record?

These are some of the organisations I'm proud to proofread for on a regular basis:

bulletBRANZ
bulletPublic Trust
bulletScitech (Australia) - Particle
bulletScooter Design
bulletWorkSafe
bulletThe University of Waikato - Science Learning Hub
bulletNeed reasonable rates?

My hourly rate is NZ$80 (plus GST). 

My average proofreading speed is around 3,500 words per hour - an A4 page is about 300-400 words. No job is too small (minimum charge is 15 minutes) or too large. 

I'm happy to provide a more accurate estimate or fixed quote once I see what's involved.
