I am an experienced copyeditor, proofreader and development editor working mainly in educational publishing. My areas of expertise are science and maths – in particular, A-level chemistry, GCSE science, KS3 science and anything in between. I have worked on Junior Cert and Leaving Cert books for the science syllabus in Ireland. I also enjoy working on other subjects for schools – geography, ICT, business to name a few.
I gained experience in-house for 13 years, first in academic publishing, then in educational publishing, before going freelance in 2008.
I also act as freelance managing editor on 3 chemistry journals for Wiley, extending my chemistry to postgraduate level.
