I started proofreading at the University of Alberta
by accident when my friends saw my graded essays and asked how they could
achieve similar results. I volunteered to look through some of their essays and
to my dismay spotted many grammar and spelling mistakes.
Over time, they started paying me (since I was a cash-poor university student and I earned them a better grade) and soon other students I had never met before came forward with their papers and it became a full-fledged freelancing business.
After I earned my Bachelor of Arts, I continued with my freelancing career, this time branching out onto the Internet. I started doing jobs on oDesk and eLance, Internet freelancing websites, and began working for other clients over the Internet.
So here I am seven years later and I am still hungry for fixing grammatical, spelling or syntactical errors. If you have content that needs to be edited or proofread, I would be happy to do it for you.
