We are so confident in our course and tuition service that we offer you a unique Double Guarantee.
This states quite clearly:
1. You have the course on 15 day (in your possession) inspection.
2. We will give you a £10.00 refund for any assignment which is not corrected properly by your tutor.
We can do a lot to help you, but we can’t do it all for you. In fact, the major contribution must come from you.
In addition to a love of the English language you should also enjoy reading, have an eye for detail, good powers of concentration and enough free time to be able to study the course thoroughly. You do not need to be especially gifted at writing or be an expert in the English Language. All you need is the ability to follow your tutor’s advice and have enthusiasm, perseverance and determination to do well. If you think this sounds like you, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy a complete career change or the extra income generated from part-time freelance proofreading and copy editing.
So if you really want a career as a proofreader or copy editor and you are prepared to put in the time and effort required, then together we can help make your goal a reality.

The perfect course for beginners looking to improve their skills in proofreading and editing. I learned a lot from this course. As well as all of the expected skills, it also covers the differences between America and English spellings, and the correct use of symbols to mark manuscripts for ammendments.
