Empowering people with their words

What is Academic Expressions?

What is Academic Expressions?

Have you ever wondered how you can make your words work for you? Overwhelmed with the demands of writing, the pressure of ‘publish or perish’ or do you wonder if your writing makes sense?

I am here to empower you with your words so your writing is clear, simple and easy to understand.

What do I do?

I specialise in proofreading, editing, and one-on-one coaching.

I work with individuals (particularly from non-English speaking backgrounds), businesses and organisations to provide solutions for your writing quandaries and assist you to produce the best document possible for whatever purpose you are writing.

Why I am different?

I have been in your shoes! I know what it is like to have the pressure of writing plus the need to meet impending deadlines. It can be hard and sometimes daunting when you wish the words would fall easier onto the page.

For the past four years I have been operating Academic Expressions providing proofreading and editing services. I have worked with professors, lecturers, higher degree students and undergraduates with their book chapters, journal articles, funding submissions, theses and assignments. These have ranged from information technology, engineering, education, international development, psychology and economics.

I have a PhD in history from the University of Melbourne and I provide consulting to Deakin University. I have experience in the publishing industry and my passion is reading. My other passion is my boisterous Labrador who thinks he rules the house!

What can I do for you?

I offer a range of services which include...
Proofreading

Confidential Coaching (one-on-one sessions, 2 hours in length)

$450

This involves 2 hours of working together on a document (or set of questions) of your choice sent to me prior to our meeting. I analyse the document (or questions) and arrive with a defined plan for the 2 hours. I meet you at your office or I can organise a suitable location.



What I do not do

I strongly believe in academic integrity. Therefore, I do not write content for assignments or theses.

To enable me to do the best job possible, I suggest you allocate at least 21 business days to the proofreading and editing of your tender/funding submissions. For academic papers and theses, I suggest you allow 14 business days.
