$3.50

I’m a former editor with The Hadley School for the Blind and Bean Soup Times.  In my day job, I am a senior librarian in the Social Sciences and History division of Chicago Public Library's Harold Washington Library Center, which means I have broad knowledge of many subject areas. 

My extensive experience includes editing papers for graduate students in the arts, social sciences & humanities, economics and medicine.  I also edit personal and teaching statements for job applications, conference presentations and grant proposals. I give rapid turnarounds without sacrificing the quality of the work. In addition to checking for grammar and typos, I provide suggestions for better phrasing, sentence order and, if desired, presentation. I do not ghostwrite papers.  Most students for whom I work are not native English speakers. 

Prices are somewhat negotiable, but generally the minimum for each double-spaced page is $3.50, max is $6 for specialized editing. If extensive changes are needed, or if you have an extraordinarily large number of pages, we’ll negotiate a mutually acceptable fee.   Please send inquiries and documents to this address: bcathryn@netscape.net. Payment for any service can be in cash, by check or through PayPal.  If using PayPal, I will ask you to please pay extra to cover the transaction fee (4% of total).
