I am a student currently studying a PhD in English Language. I graduated with my Masters in English Language in 2011. I have worked part time for the last three years as a proofreader and copy editor helping both national and international students specialising in reading international students’ PhDs. The sort of mistakes students make happen time and again and I want to help people feel more confident in their writing.
This blog is intended to help students of all ages from school to degree level (though it is mostly aimed at University students). I will provide information on essay planning, writing, referencing, formatting etc. including tips on good grammar, how to quote from other texts and common easy-to-avoid mistakes.
Please comment if there is any topic you want featured, or something which you don’t feel is expressed clearly enough – I am always happy to help.
