Editing and Proofreading Experience
I have helped postgraduate students and researchers around the world to present their research in clear, accurate language. I have edited and proofread academic papers for individual clients on such topics as second language writing, task-based learning, technology in education, educational administration and more.
I have also edited and proofread numerous papers on other subjects, including archaeology, art and design, business, computer science, cultural anthropology, economics, film studies, history, IT, law, media studies and politics.
Some of the universities my clients have been affiliated with are as follows:

University of Nottingham

University of Salford
University of Central Lancashire
University of Loughborough
University of British Columbia
Macquarie University, Australia

KIng Abdulaziz University, Saudi Arabia
International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language (IATEFL)
With members in over 100 countries, IATEFL is the world's most international organisation for professionals in the field of English language teaching: classroom teachers, administrators, materials writers, curriculum designers, etc. I have held three editorial roles with IATEFL. Over the last ten years, I have edited papers by some of the best-known names in ELT; I have also helped hundreds of first-time writers to see their words in print.
I have been editor of IATEFL's bimonthly magazine for two years. Voices is distributed in print and digital format to around 4,000 IATEFL members around the world.
Conference Selections (past editor)
Conference Selections is the proceedings of the annual IATEFL Conference held every spring in the UK. It is a refereed publication of 240 pages. Like Voices, Conference Selections is distributed in print and digital formats to around 4,000 IATEFL members every year. I was editor of Conference Selections from 2010 to 2020. In that time, I edited over 1,000 short reports of talks and workshops.
MaWSIG (past editor)
MaWSIG is the IATEFL Materials Writing Special Interest Group. I am a past MaWSIG Committee member, and for two years I edited posts for the regular MaWSIG blog.
