About me

I have been writing, editing and proofreading for academia and editorial publications since 2014. I have extensive experience improving academic articles, theses and books. I know how to correct grammatical errors, enhance readability and apply formatting to meet publication guidelines.

I have a PhD in Chinese and History from City University of Hong Kong, a Masters in Sinology from the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, and an undergraduate degree in Chinese from the University of Edinburgh.

 

I know that revising your writing piece is often the most laborious and time-consuming part of the writing process. I offer a professional and timely service to help you optimise your hard work.
