Testimonials

Thoroughly enjoyed working with Denise on a project for Mexico this year. I was the project manager of the Teacher's Edition and she was the proofreader on all four levels. She proved herself to be an accurate, a quick, and a flexible proofreader who was a pleasure to work with.

Emma Wyman, Freelance Editor, ELT

I've found Denise to be supportive, encouraging and extremely professional. Her input into my work has been extremely valuable and beneficial, and I recommend Denise to anyone who requires proofreading or editing. I look forward to working with Denise in the long term.
