English Graduate offering help with grammar, punctuation & spelling, and proofreading in Plymouth

Methodology

I am open to helping anyone with anything. From a critical essay in which you are struggling to structure your paragraphs, to a piece of creative writing you are doing simply for fun. I can create a lesson plan around a specific topic, or assist with a partiluar piece of work. I will mostly be available by email and will happily proofread digital copies, though I am available to attend in person should this be better for you.

Background

In a world where the written word is going out of style, I find myself ever more furvently striving to perfect my use of the English language. I specialise in poetry in my personal work, though fiction is my ultimate goal. That, and a career as an Editor. I have no teaching experience however have been praised by friends and family when proofreading university level essays for my contructive criticism and helpful tips and tricks. I hope to help others, possibly like you, to create and structure your words coherently, and in a way that you can be proud of.
