  • Excel documents

  • PowerPoint presentations

  • Web pages/blogs

I have experience working with:

  • Researchers

  • PhD students

  • Master's students

  • ESL (English as a second language)

  • Clinical trials

  • Education materials

  • Clients from the USA, China, Saudi Arabia, Austria, Lebanon, Greece and more

Paula Emery - About Me

Freelancing gives me the opportunity to achieve two goals - work independently on a variety of exciting projects, and help others reach new levels of success. My clients range from university students to published authors of fiction, and no project is too big or too small.

As a proofreader and editor, and as a former primary school educator, I have a passion for helping others achieve their very best. Writers often know what they want to say, but it can be a real challenge to put that idea across in their writing, especially when English is their second language (ESL).

My aim is to provide support to ensure that writers can portray their message correctly, express their ideas clearly, and accomplish what they set out to do in their writing at the highest level possible.
