Proofreading and copy editing services
The selection provided here is only a brief sample of my consultant work as a proofreader and copy editor. It shows my capabilities for evaluating correct syntax, grammatical errors, adequate language usage, writing style, content organization and ideas logical sequence. As part of the document revision, I also check font and size consistency, page order, photos and graphics captions, references to charts, tables, and figures, and compliance with bibliographical rules.
Kindle books formatting services
The linked e-book in this section is an example of the service I can offer to authors that need help to prepare their publications as Kindle books. I can take care of the proofreading and copy-editing of the document, and configure it to be uploaded by the author to the Kinder publishing service. Just send the writing draft, and I will provide a copy of the files needed for publishing the book.
In the past, I had the opportunity to design and teach business communication online courses. Besides, this website, which I have created and administer myself, can be taken as evidence of my written and technological skills and my ability to work remotely.
I'm a Spanish speaker with formal academic degrees and experience teaching courses related with Spanish grammar and communication. I have also designed workshops and consultant services to help other professionals and government employees to improve their language knowledge and communication competencies. I rely on those professional qualifications to offer services as a private Spanish tutor.
