Ally's performance is exemplary. In addition to her attentive scrutiny of the texts and her corrections to the minutest inconsistencies, she manages to leave the tone of voice and personality of the original author intact. Her skills, her punctuality and overall professionalism make us feel fortunate to be working with her.

I had some experience with some proofreaders in the last few years, and that's why I was really careful to look for a new one. I googled, asked, read, and compared until I finally found Ally. I was so amazed by the work she provided in my thesis. She listened very well to what I needed and went through every single detail with me and provided her advice on things that were important to the work. She is so professional and definitely she will be my first choice next time. Thank you Ally for the great job you did for me.

You write, you study, you lecture, you're in business, your home is far away.
You've worked hard with your words.
ALLY OAKES – PROOFREADING FOR YOU.
YOUR OWN WORDS, JUST BETTER.
I'm an international proofreader reaching out to you, especially if you're an ESL/non-native English writer.
What do you need?
You need precision and punctuality. Naturally.
You need to be confident that I'll preserve your meaning and your own style. You're the writer – you're employing me to help, not to take over.
You need to be sure that I'll change only what's necessary, in your spelling, punctuation, grammar and layout. I did swallow a dictionary early on in my life, but you can trust me not to go for the thesaurus just for fun. I won't do things to change your style. It's yours, not mine. I know the boundaries.
Of course you need all these things. You're the owner of your words.
I'm their guardian.
I'm your proofreader.
