As an editor, I am committed to making sure that your writing is clear and effective.  I have served as a peer-reviewer and editor for academic journal articles, textbooks, and distance education courses. As demonstrated by my track record of publishing in peer-reviewed academic journals, encyclopedias, and books, I have a solid understanding of the key aspects of effective academic writing.


I use track changes in Microsoft Word when editing so that you can see the changes I have made and you have control over the final version of the document.  I provide various types of editing, including proofreading, copy editing, checking references (MLA and APA), and providing feedback about the structure of the document and the strength of your analysis and arguments.  


I also provide editing for non-academic writing (e.g. creative writing, business writing, etc).

Cost of Services


My rate for editing is $80 an hour. The number of pages I can edit an hour depends on the degree of editing that is required which I can usually determine after seeing a short sample of the work.  Discounts are available for the editing of longer texts (e.g. full dissertations, dissertation chapters, and books).  


If you are interested in my editing services, please email me at balancedacademic@gmail.com with a four page sample of the writing you would like to have edited and your timeline. I will get back to you ASAP with a quote.
