Some of the ways I can help
In an increasingly digital age, finding the right words to communicate with consistency and clarity is incredibly important.
While you may know inside out the details of what you are trying to communicate, getting it down on paper is rarely that easy!
In addition to my tutoring work with students of all ages, I also work as a proofreader and copywriter, providing a transcribing, copywriting and proofreading service to a range of clients; helping you put your ideas into words and effectively tell your story – typo-free.
My transcribing work is undertaken for clients who are looking for written copy of pre-recorded content. Past work has included transcribing for a language research project for the University of Glasgow as part of ‘Sounds of the City’. Transcription work is normally undertaken on a project basis – please send me an e-mail for further information.
Knowing your subject inside out doesn’t necessarily mean it’s easy to write about! In a digital age it is vital to ensure that your content is clear and consistent – and that’s hopefully where I can help you.
I work with a range of clients to help provide written content for use across mediums from websites to social media, in an appropriate tone for your audience. Usually projects begin with me undertaking an e-mail or phone interview to allow me to learn more of your subject. From there, we will work together to identify what needs you have in communicating your content.
My aim is to provide you with content to meet your needs, ensuring a consistency in style with multiple content for a variety of outlets such as print, web or social media.
I undertake proofreading work for a variety of clients, with past projects for commercial enterprises, charities and individuals.

If proofreading is not your strength, allow me to be your second pair of eyes. Proofreading requirements can vary with each client, some projects need a revision of spelling, grammar and punctuation, while others require a more thorough service. I aim to help you communicate clearly, working on expression and rooting out typos so your message is uninterrupted.
Writing for Search Engines
Search engines have become an integral part of daily life, with an estimated 40,000 searches on Google every second.
Having clear content on your website is an important part of helping Google to know that your website is a source of authority on a certain subject and helps keep the interest of your visitors once they arrive.
Increasingly, I now work with a range of clients in helping them to create content that helps your website be found by Google.
Whatever needs you may have, I’d be happy to hear from you.
