Can I help you?

Do you need a proofreader?

My name is Annie Deakins and I provide professional proofreading services.

I check errors in writing, giving you a reliable turnaround. With my background in teaching and education, I bring a specific set of marking skills for the needs of specific clients.

Could you be a client?

Educational publishers do you need a proofreader for Primary or Secondary textbooks and e-learning materials?

Publishers of children’s books do you need a proofreader for books of fiction or non-fiction for 5-11 year olds?

Students does your writing need to be tidied and more presentable?  See Clients under ‘More…’.

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.”
