About your editor
MIT-trained (PhD in Linguistics, Prof. Noam Chomsky, Advisor), I edit dissertations, theses, and articles for graduate students and researchers. I have over 40 years of scholarly editing experience (in academia, in publishing, and freelance) and am a Member of the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA). Extensively published and a former associate professor at Teachers College, Columbia University, I have edited the manuscripts of over 1,000 students and scholars worldwide in a broad range of disciplines. Easy to talk to and work with, I take pride in never having missed a deadline.
What I can do for you
Scholarly writings that are poorly thought through and littered with grammatical errors and inconsistencies are embarrassing to their authors. They cost money, time, and professional reputation. I will proofread, edit, and suggest approaches to achieving the scholarly credibility for which you strive and that your efforts deserve.
Academic institutions and publishers confront you with rubrics, templates, style requirements, and spec sheets to which you are expected to adhere with absolute and unforgiving accuracy. I am an expert in these requirements and your manuscript will reflect this expertise.
Understanding your problems
You may be experiencing the uncertainties of writing a thesis, dissertation, or journal article for the first time. I understand your misgivings exactly and will be there to guide you every step of the way. As one of my clients recently wrote, “The most meaningful aspect of the one-on-one editing experience was your personal interest in and respect for my work.”

Ask me for a Sample Edit, which will allow us to discuss your editing requirements. There is no charge for this.
