I began my proofreading career by advertising at local universities and academic institutions. I developed a client base of students who relied on me to regularly edit their assignments. Many of these students were not native English speakers, and had concerns relating to the grammar, syntax and logic of their work. I became adept at helping ESL students to polish their English into a form acceptable in an academic context. Many of my clients emailed me to tell me that their marks had improved, and their instructors were impressed with the quality of their assignments.
Over time I began to move from undergraduate work to graduate work, and before long was almost exclusively working on PhD and masters theses.
