Jaime Sperling 

Copyediting and Proofreading

I’ve always had a knack for the written word—for catching typos, for untangling the structure of a complex sentence, for arranging the components of an argument or a story. 

I have a bachelor’s and a master’s degree, both in linguistics. (No, I don’t speak any languages other than English.)

 

In college, my friends asked me to proofread their papers. In grad school, I was a go-to for some of the ESL students in my program. In my professional life (even before segueing into editing), I’d get the odd phone call: “Jaime, is this correct?” To this day, friends message me: “Is this a word?” “Is this correct?” “Can you think of a better word for this?”

 

I’ve been editing professionally since 2001. My editorial skills were honed in the communications and marketing departments of several nonprofit organizations. In late 2017, I decided it was time to fly the nest and start my own business. And here I am, for all your editing, proofreading, and indexing needs.

 

See my Services Offered page for details of what I do, how I do it, and how I can help you.

 

I’ve been a member in good standing of ACES: The Society for Editing since 2011.
