    I also offer proofreading for EFL. This goes beyond simple proofreading, I proofread your work and provide you with notes on grammar and vocabulary which we can meet to discuss in detail. I also offer a tailor-made class or classes based on your errors and focused on improving your writing. I work in line with University guidelines on proofreading.
