Can I help you?

Do you need professional proofreading services? My name is Annie Deakins and I am Proofnow Proofreader.

I have trained extensively to proofread and check errors and inconsistencies in writing, giving you a reliable and efficient service. I am adaptable and dedicated (which happen to be my initials – AD – so, easy to remember).

Education is my specialism. With my background in teaching, I understand how learning happens.

Feel free to look around my website. Get in touch if you think we would be a good fit.

You could be a client

I am a proofreader for:

Children’s books: I can help you. Do you need a proofreader for books of fiction or non-fiction for 5-11 year olds?

Educational publishers: I can help you. Do you need a proofreader for e-learning materials, or primary or secondary textbooks?

Businesses: I can help you. Are you presenting writing for the public? Does your website or newsletter need to be proofread?

Students: I can help you. Does your dissertation or thesis need to be checked and proofread? 


Annie is very professional, committed to the client’s needs and incredibly conscientious. She reshuffled her diary to accommodate my proofreading request, for which I am very grateful. She delivered the service within the suggested time frame. I would not hesitate to recommend Annie.”  Lidia Stanton MA MSc Psych MBPsS, Psychologist, Dyslexia Specialist, and Study Skills Tutor (Her book ‘Tricky Punctuation in Cartoons’ is one of a set of guides for children published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.)
