I have also had the opportunity to edit and proofread academics’ paperwork when applying to institutional review board (IRB) for studies in the following fields:

  • Communication Studies
  • Rhetoric
  • Teaching English as a Second Language
  • Nursing

Theses and Dissertations

I have worked with graduate students on their dissertations in the following areas:

  • Teaching English as a Second Language
  • Rhetoric
  • English Literature
  • Feminist Studies
  • Nursing
  • Business

Case Study 1

I worked with a client who was submitting a chapter to an academic anthology on Narrative Studies. The editor of the book had given them feedback and asked them to shorten it. I had worked with this client several times before, so I knew how to elevate their writing from good to amazing.

Going in, I knew that I needed to cut words, so I was reading for grammatical errors, places that might not make sense, and places where a sentence got a bit wordy. Wordy isn’t grammatically or stylistically incorrect, I just knew that we needed to cut some words. Working with them, we got the word count to the goal the editor had given them.


Case Study 2

I worked with a non-native English speaker who was working on their final project for a graduate course in nursing. The project also functioned as the paperwork for their school’s institutional review board. There were a few grammatical errors here and there, but nothing that really impeded the meaning that they were trying to express.
