About Us

My name is Emily Stapleton and I have been working as a freelance proof-reader and English language editor since 2008, specialising in correcting English grammar, spelling and vocabulary for academics and students. Originally, my clients were mainly based at Manchester University but now I work for academics and students around the world, China to Scandinavia to California.

Before becoming a proof-reader, I did a PhD in Probability and Finance and then worked in the banking industry for seven years as a Risk Manager.  I have supervised several MSc students at Manchester Business School with their dissertations and therefore can offer an excellent knowledge of the standards required for both academics and students.

Due to my background in finance and banking I specialise in proof-reading in this and related fields, such as Management, Economics and Business.

I am a native English speaker and have excellent English language skills, a keen eye for detail and pride myself on providing a fast, accurate proof-reading and English language editing service.

Much of my work to date has been for non-English speakers, therefore I have gained extensive experience in improving the standard of English in academic papers and students' essays and dissertations, ensuring your work can be judged on the basis of its academic content alone and that, therefore, you are not penalised for your English language skills.

NEW Service! I now offer translation from Italian or Spanish to English. Save time and effort translating your work into English yourself and try my combined translation and proofreading service. My expertise in academic writing and finance-related fields means that I can offer a more accurate translation. Contact me today for a free quote: emilyjstapleton@yahoo.co.uk
