I specialize in intensive academic and developmental editing of ESL scholars' writing. Most of my clients are doctoral students and recent PhDs in need of assistance with dissertation writing, publishing, and grant and career development.
My editing is more intensive than standard copyediting, as I provide extensive developmental feedback and language editing to get your work sounding as natural as possible to native English academic audiences; my rates and turn-around time reflect my high level of expertise and the very intensive time and effort I put into your work.
Beyond editing, I welcome all questions pertaining to writing development and research/career mentoring. I have a BA, 2 MAs, and a PhD from R1 universities in the US and know how the American academic system works. My areas of expertise are anthropology, history, philosophy, and cultural studies. Clients in other fields of research are welcome to contact me to see if I can be of assistance to you.
All editing includes two rounds of revision (round 1: copyediting and developmental feedback; round 2: follow-up, editing of new material, and proofreading), so you have a chance to respond to my feedback and seek additional advice on any changes made. Please stay in touch and keep me updated on your writing, research, and career success!
