James Raymond, BA, BSc, MSc, MRes

Academic proofreader

I am a freelance proofreader and copyeditor with several years’ experience. I specialise in helping non-native speakers of English produce accurate, readable academic prose. With academic training in both the sciences and the humanities, I can work with texts from any discipline.

I work in Microsoft Word and add corrections and comments using the ‘Track Changes’ tool. My working style is friendly and collaborative, and I can provide stylistic suggestions as well as simple proofreading.

I also offer personalised English lessons with a focus on academic writing.

We have only the best experience with James's work – he's fast and absolutely reliable. He is also really versatile when it comes to texts and can work with both highly academic pieces and more popular ones.

Our journal has benefited from James’ proofreading services since 2018. Because of his dedication, reliability, and broad thematic range, his work has been of great assistance to our authors. We particularly appreciate his attention to detail and flexibility, which facilitate the entire production process.
