Proofreading for non-fiction publishers

Client: CIEP

The CIEP (Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading) provides editorial services and training for the publishing industry.

I proofread and reviewed the bank of proofreading exercises, available from the CIEP. See below the blog post review I wrote for them.

“Thank you so much for doing this. I greatly appreciate it.”

Proofreading for publishers of education and ELT books

Do you publish primary or secondary textbooks? Or  publish English Language Teaching (ELT) learning materials? Or digital content?

Do you need a proofreader?

I have vast experience in primary education. A primary classroom teacher for 30 years, I am currently a 1-1 private tutor as well as a qualified proofreader. I continue to experience education at first hand.

When tutoring, I specifically boost the self-esteem of lower-achieving children. I raise standards in ability for SATs at Key Stage 1 and 2.

I check for errors and inconsistencies in paper and digital publications for the classroom. I am familiar with the National Curriculum for the Core and Foundation Subjects. 

Immersed in planning resources, marking schemes, and by following the recommendations of educational consultants on-line, I know the expectations in teaching and learning.

Annie, thank you for your prompt response and agreeing to take on Black Poppies. The combination of relevant experience and CIEP accreditation were deciding factors for me making contact.
