Editing

I offer professional-level editing on a freelance basis. With a PhD in English and three years of editing experience with clients from both academia and the corporate world, I'm a seasoned and versatile editor eager to take on all manner of projects. To date, I have edited doctoral and master's dissertations, scholarly articles, business and medical documents of many kinds, and application documents (cover letters, resumes and CVs, application essays, teaching and research statements). Clients value my promptness, thoroughness, and willingness to take on jobs on short notice. Contact me here to request my help with any written project along these lines.

Below are some testimonials from clients with whom I have worked over the last two years:

"Andrew gave me the specific roadmap that my professors in graduate school, including my dissertation director, did not give me. He was thorough, truthful, and solution-focused. His forte is listening for what you need from him and making sure he provides it--in a meticulous fashion. I feelnewly energized about pursuing my project because of his feedback!"

Allyson L., Graduate Student

"Andrew's speed and accuracy make him a wonderfully effective editor. He was able to predict the exact amount of time needed to complete each phase of my project.  He adjusted his schedule to accommodate my needs. His advice on grammar and language significantly improved the quality of the final product. He is highly reliable and highly efficient.  No doubt, Andrew is superb at his craft.  I would recommend him to anyone!"

Charisse O., Hospital CEO

“I’ve been working with Andrew for a couple of years on a project that requires ongoing editing services throughout the year and often on short notice.  Andrew is very professional, flexible and consistently meets our impossible timeline. He is a great asset to our project and have served our team well.” 

Sancta W., Project Director

"I can personally vouch for Andrew's excellent proofreading and editing service. I could not be more delighted with the professionalism, the timeliness of his service. Seriously, his turnaround time is phenomenal! I loved his open communication and quick responses on all of my past projects. Well worth the money!  I continue to be a HAPPY customer!"

Deep M., University Professor

"I needed help on a manuscript to make sure readers would understand a complex theoretical argument weaved through a personal narrative. Andrew provided excellent feedback to address issues like redundancy and clarity, as well as improve organization, tone, and flow. Because Andrew carefully read my work, he provided insightful comments, questions,​ and suggestions without which​ I may have missed opportunities to drive home my argument. Andrew was always very happy to attend to specific details/concerns/questions I had about getting my ideas across in my writing, and his feedback greatly improved my paper. I highly recommend him as an editor."

Laura C., Graduate Student
