“I’ve engaged Stephen as a proofreader on a multitude of projects over the years. He has worked on higher education and further education textbooks as well as online resources for me, and has always delivered on time to a very high standard. He pays meticulous attention to detail and raises valid author and editorial queries where necessary. …”

(Testimonial from education publishing client)

The media I have handled relate to all stages of education and learning, from primary school right through to further education, vocational training, and management career development. I also have very substantial experience of working in many academic subjects.
