I offer a dependable, professional, punctual proofreading and copy-editing service. I take pride in delivering excellent work.

I will happily accept work on any subject and can edit either on paper using British Standard proof-correction marks or on screen. I have taken training specifically on electronic editing so I can easily edit Word and PDF documents for you, and can return documents to you by email, disk or paper.

I have particular experience in the following areas:

  • Law
  • Academia
  • Social Sciences
  • Arts; and
  • Business studies and management.

You have already done the most important part of any project: the writing. You've worked hard at it and you've put in all the content it needs. But, like anything, a piece of writing needs to be polished before it's displayed to the world. That's where a professional proofreader and copy-editor comes in.

Perhaps you're not a native English-speaker. Perhaps you are dyslexic or simply find it hard to fathom the panoply of seemingly mysterious rules and conventions that govern our language. Perhaps you want a fresh pair of eyes to pick up on what you missed or need to move on to your next project. Let me take care of it for you.

Proofreading goes further than simply checking for typos. A great proofreader can make sure that:

  • any ambiguities are avoided;
  • there is consistent style and formatting throughout the work;
  • complex sentence structures are untangled; and
  • references and citations are all in the right (and the same) style.

No matter whether the job is as large as a doctoral thesis or a novel or as small as a web page or a CV, Jackson Proofreading Services can help you. I look forward to hearing from you.


I have a background in social sciences academia and law, practising as a solicitor and accredited legal aid supervisor before taking specialist training, including from the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, and establishing a career in proofreading and copy-editing.
