I have been helping university students realise their potential for over 20 years:
- Supervising Masters and Doctorates
- Developing and teaching courses for both domestic and international students in New Zealand (University of Auckland, AUT, Unitec) and the UK (Exeter University)
- I hold a Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages
- Proofreading and formatting the online journal Political Economy of Communication (www.polecom.org)
- Technical editing for Straker/NZTC International, Wellington, NZ
WHAT I DO
PROOFREADING & THESIS SUPPORT FOR NZ AND INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
I help Students – New Zealand and International – by proofreading their doctoral and master's theses, research projects and essays.
All from $30 per hour/around $13-20 per 1000 words.
After months of hard work, you now have the Final Draft of your Thesis. But you may not be sure that it reads as clearly as you would like, or whether the grammar and spelling needs checking. Writing a university thesis in your own language is tough enough - but more so if you are an international student with a different mother tongue. Your supervisor will know this and – within certain very clear guidelines – may agree that you should look for help.
This is where I come in. Having supervised students at honours and masters to doctorate level myself, I know what help you need and can provide it for you. Although I specialise in many subjects* I can support you whatever your main subject. I am also a qualified English teacher for speakers of foreign languages.
I will proofread your Final Draft, correcting and advising where needed and making sure it is clear and makes sense to the reader. I will also check that you have used appropriate and accurate vocabulary, and that the tone and style is academic and professional.
Academic support services to university staff, students and publishers, including research, editing and transcribing
Alongside proofreading, I also provide support services to academic staff, such as editing, research, report writing and transcribing.
I proof academic work from Master’s and PhD theses to journal articles, reports and books across a range of fields (including Business / Economics, Creative Industries, Education, English, History, Hospitality , Language and Culture, Media / Communications, Politics, Sociology). I have worked on professional practice theses such as social and health development, landscape architecture, construction and vehicle systems, and on the academic components (exegeses) of artistic theses (e.g. Creative Writing, Music).
WEBSITE COPY WRITING FOR TOURISM BUSINESSES.
All from $290 for 1000 words, enough for a complete website (like this one).
We also have our own Coromandel B&B - so know first hand how much copy writing is needed! See www.harbourviewlodge.co.nz
