    I have proofread in the past for amateur authors and received positive feedback from them on my performance. My proofreading strengths include spelling and vocabulary. I love to read fiction so would be particularly interested in proofreading or reviewing someone's work. As well as an A* at A Level English Literature, in my free time I also write fiction so I have a good understanding of characterisation and plot which make me suitable as a book reviewer. I spent a few weeks performing volunteer work that involved helping young children learn to read and as such I have a good idea of the reading levels of children aged 4-6.  less
