I work with many PhD researchers in the writing phase of research work. I will tailor my editing to best serve your needs and the needs of your project. I am highly responsive to your questions and I can work with you within a reasonable timeline.


I can provide invaluable feedback as an outside reader with over 10 years of experience writing academic research and teaching APA style.

Pricing will depend on length of contract, length of manuscript, hours needed, and expertise devoted.

The following services (listed below) are some examples of ways I can help you as you are polishing up your dissertation.

I also work as a grant writer and editor. Please see about my background for more details, or contact me to discuss your project.

Pre-Review Editor

As your pre-review editor I will help you get your manuscript near-perfect before your committee reads and reviews it for comments and recommendations.  

At this stage your manuscript is close to ready and relatively clean, you just need assistance with things like the following:


catching errors,

APA style consistency,

creating the Table of Contents,

organizing figures and tables,

copyediting the content.

As a pre-review editor I read the entire paper and provide very detailed feedback as I catch errors and problems. This is a highly time-intensive process requiring focused expertise for creating a near to perfect document.  

Normally this is a separate service due to the amount of time it can take to not only make sure the references are synched up in both directions, but also that references are correctly cited in style and format.

A final detailed close-read through before your final submission designed to catch any final errors and issues in formatting, or, as a final proofread after committee edits. This service can be negotiated as part of your developing or pre-review editing contract, or agreed upon as an hourly charge separately.
