The services that I offer are described below, along with the flat hourly rate for each service.
*Please note, if you hire me for more than one service (for example, copyediting and referencing), you will not pay $30 per hour for editing plus $40 per hour for referencing. Rather, you will pay a combined rate of $45 per hour.

Copyediting – $30 per hour
Many editing services separate basic proofreading from copyediting and apply individual rates; I don’t. To me, copyediting is copyediting. Any quality editing job involves proofreading simply as a matter of course. For this reason, I charge a flat hourly rate for my copyediting work. The amount you will pay, then, will depend on the extent of work needed.
When you entrust a project to me for editing, I will do the following:
- Simple formatting
- Clarity of ideas
- Sentence and paragraph flow and transition
- Proper word usage
- Grammatical consistency
Especially in the academic world, different disciplines (psychology, history, business, etc) have unique style requirements for writing and referencing. I am versed in APA (American Psychological Association), MLA (Modern Language Association), and Chicago/Turabian, and have ready access to many others.
