You’re not alone if you struggle with writing. Perhaps English is not your first language. Perhaps science is your first love and writing is not your thing. Or perhaps you simply need the little extra polish bestowed by a final proofreading. Whatever the case, I can help you.

I understand the frustration of knowing that you have ideas to share but not having the tools with which to share them, especially if what you are writing is the culmination of a demanding piece of research or years of study. I have worked on academic papers, theses, and dissertations. My clients have included the Graduate Studies Office at Caltech, for whom I proofread PhD theses; the Molecular and Computational Biology Department at USC; and MA and PhD students at Cal Poly Pomona. I am familiar with APA style and the Chicago Manual of Style.

What I want to do is to allow you to get your ideas across with clarity and accuracy. I don’t just edit or proofread: I try to get to the heart of what you want to say, and help you say it better.
