GENERAL PROOFREADING RATE

$20 per hour

While proofreading your work, I use a timer to keep track of time spent reading. Time is rounded up to the nearest half hour. The short documents that I typically correct do not often take me longer than an hour to proofread.

30 minutes of proofreading: $10

60 minutes of proofreading: $20


Polishing your short writing projects

  • Flyers

  • Brochures

  • Letters

  • Websites

  • Social media content

  • Short articles

If you need proofreading for a longer project, I may be able to help, but if not, I will put you in touch with another excellent proofreader who can.

Please send the final draft of your work. A proofreader should be the last pair of eyes on an almost-ready piece of writing.

Your document will be corrected in PDF format or in Google Docs, whichever you prefer.

I do NOT proofread the content of academic essays that will be submitted for grading. Schools have academic integrity policies that prohibit students from using proofreaders. Your teachers need to see you display your own writing abilities. If you’d like someone to guide you as you develop your writing skills, please try contacting your school’s writing center for FREE help!
