|Speciality:||Academic, Education, Training|
|Profession:||Editor, Proofreader, Trainer/Lecturer|
Since 2005 I have been employed as a university lecturer in the field of academic writing and literacy. I have freelanced in my spare time, as a language editor and proof reader of mainly academic writing (dissertations, theses, research reports, journal articles etc.). At the end of 2019 I am due to retire from my permanent position as a senior lecturer in the Engish Department at the University of Johannesburg. From 2020 onwards, with more time available to me, I intend to focus specifically on doing freelance work as a language editor and proof-reader. I am an associate member of the Professional Editors Guild (PEG) - membership # LAY002. I hope that my application to be an associate member of SAFREA will be successful.
