Please have a look at what I do, my ethos and experience here. The academic job market is highly competitive, and everything counts in your dossier, from presentation and paper down to punctuation and capitalization. I also offer academic editorial services for dissertations. I charge in 5-minute increments for graduate student clients.
The job dossier service may include (but is not limited to):
Developmental editing ($70-80/hour)
Developmental editing can include (but is not limited to):
- cover letters
- teaching statements
- research statements
- curriculum vitae
- sample syllabi
Job dossier proofreading and copyediting ($60/hour)
I can proofread and copyedit your full job dossier for consistency across documents in style and tone, as well as check for redundancies. I recommend that you have your committee chair or a trusted advisor in your field review your dossier before you bring it to me for proofreading and copyediting. This service is done in-text using the track changes feature in Word, and can include formatting upon request.
Writing sample stylistic editing ($50-60/hour)
Make sure your writing sample is letter-perfect. This service is done in-text using the track changes feature in Word.
If you will be paying me through your institution, there is a nominal paperwork fee.
I also accept payment directly through QuickPay with Zelle and Venmo for no extra charge, and PayPal for an additional 3% service charge fee.
