Hi, I’m Laurence.

I’ve been professionally proofreading since 2005, having worked on more than 500 documents. Over this time, I have learned one simple rule that pleases my clients more than anything else – simplicity. You are looking for an expert proofreader who will correct your work at a sensible price. You want it to be done quickly, but efficiently, then returned to you in perfect fashion.

How does your service work?

Reach out via email stating exactly what you want help with, or alternatively, give me a phone call. Rest assured that the conversation will be highly informal.


What tools do you use to proofread?

I use Word to outline changes in red and in the right-hand column, listing necessary alterations and suggestions. Through this, you know where you went wrong and why I made the correction. At the very end of the process, I’ll send two copies of your work:

  • The first version: full list of corrections (the final clean copy is the version you need)
  • The final version: delivered well structured and accessible to the reader

I pride my workflow as being made simple for my clients. Writing essays and documents is already hard enough – so let me take the stress out of that for you with my expert proofreading services.


What should I provide?

  • How many words does your work consist of?
  • Deadline date for completion
  • Ask for a quote. It’s that simple!

To make things even more simple, send me a 500-word sample of your work and I’ll proofread it completely free.

I found Laurence on the internet, and as soon as I spoke with him I knew that I was dealing with a professional. I am thrilled with his work which was of the highest order. It was professional, top class and done against a very tight deadline. I would heartily recommend him to any aspiring author who would like the comfort of a thorough proofreading. I certainly will be using his services again following his work on my book Shoeisms.

I have known Laurence for almost two years during which time he proof-read and edited several defence and security publications. I have been consistently impressed with Laurence’s professionalism and his approach to work delivering excellent results and well before deadlines, which can be very tight in a publishing business. My company will continue to work with Laurence and I certainly recommend him without reservations.

Laurence provides an excellent proof reading service which was a tremendous support to me when completing my PhD. The speed and efficiency of returning completed chapters was admirable as that kept me on track with my own time schedule of submitting my thesis. I didn’t have the time for the detail required to ensure a professional finish to my thesis which is what Laurence provided. I highly recommend his services which are very competitive and offers value for money.
