Welcome to Silver Academic Editing

Do you write scholarly articles? Are you working on a book, thesis, or dissertation? Are you putting together application materials for a job or a university? 

I’m here to help. 

Let me strengthen your writing as I edit for style, structure, and clarity of content. My job also includes proofreading your work for typos, errors, and consistency of formatting.

I specialize in academic editing in the humanities and social sciences, particularly in the fields of Linguistics, Applied Linguistics, Sociology, Conversation Analysis, History, and Education, though I have experience editing in other academic fields as well. (For more on my previous experience, see the Testimonials page.)

Is English your second language? I can help with your writing, too.

I speak Japanese and Spanish, and I’m conversant in Korean – I have extensive experience editing the English academic writing of Japanese and Korean scholars, and writers who speak other languages as well.

For ESL authors, I also take the time to provide feedback on English expressions and colloquial vs. written usage, in addition to correcting English errors. I’ll help transform your writing, giving it a polished and professional tone, while answering your questions about English academic writing conventions along the way.

My meticulous nature and eye for detail allow me to work carefully and efficiently, as I refine your writing.

I look forward to hearing from you!
