It is my belief that you should not be penalised for the errors in your writing if you have dyslexia, but should be awarded marks for your ideas and hard work. I have worked with many dyslexic students to ensure that the work they have produced is written in the best possible English, is clear and concise and is error-free.

A Writer
a jobseeker
a student

I have worked with numerous international authors on documents ranging from manuscripts, short stories and novels to poetry and songs. I am well aware of the importance of your creative style so don’t make any alterations to elements like style, dialects or tone of voice, unless you ask me to. I am able to offer constructive criticism if requested and guidance on areas of your work that could be improved.

I offer a completely confidential proofreading service so I guarantee that your work remains your work and I am happy to sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) for your peace of mind.

When you are applying for a new job or a promotion it is important to present yourself in the best light possible. This includes using correct English in all your written correspondence.

A number of years ago I was a student at the University of Edinburgh so I know what it is like when you have taken the time to write an essay, paper or dissertation and I understand that you want to make sure that you will receive the best mark possible. At most universities up to 10% of marks are awarded for correct spelling, grammar and punctuation. To make sure you don’t lose out on these marks and to get the grade you deserve it is important to use a high quality proofreader.

About Us

Samantha, the founder of English Proofreading, works with her husband David to offer the quality, fast and reliable proofreading service that English Proofreading is renowned for.



I have always been passionate about language and I have a Masters degree in European Languages from the University of Edinburgh and have over 10 years of proofreading experience. I created English Proofreading to help people communicate clearly in the most accurate English possible. I enjoy working with a vast range of people and have built up valuable working relationships with my clients over the years. Throughout my time working as a proofreader I have worked with a wide array of people from all over the world, including PhD students, authors, undergraduate students and government departments. I have years of experience of working with academics, PR companies, people with dyslexia, and people for whom English is not their first language. I have been recommended as a reliable, professional proofreader by my clients and am happy to proofread anything from poetry and Ph.D. theses to technical research papers. I hope you will find this website useful and I look forward to working with you.


I have been working with Samantha since 2010 before which I was working in academia. While completing my studies I realised the value of a good proofreader and have personally seen the benefit of how a proofreader can dramatically change and enhance the validity of your work and, as a result, get you better marks. This also applies to the working world, as using the best English possible will ensure you come across as a professional in a world where first impressions are everything.

I am passionate about English Proofreading because I really believe our service does help a wide variety of individuals with practically any type of written English. For this reason I have been working on extending the range of services that we can offer. Why not have a look round our website to see how we can help you.

Our Clients

We have worked with a number of well-respected institutions …


I would definitely recommend Samantha as a proofreader. As a dyslexic student, I have found her most invaluable. It's great not to have to ask my friends to check my spelling, particularly when I am a bit sensitive about it. Samantha even proofreads the smallest of things I write, and treats my dyslexia with respect, which is really nice.

Anonymous, Edinburgh University

I couldn't have got my book published without Samantha's help. She not only proofread the English manuscript of my book, but also ensured that my translation from Spanish was accurate.
