my background as a proofreader - Dr Adam Newton

Dr Adam Newton - Palaeontologist and proofreader

I'm Dr Adam Newton, a native English speaker from the UK. I have a PhD in Palaeoanthropology from the University of Liverpool. As a result, I am familiar with human anatomy, evolutionary biology, and archaeology. At undergraduate level I studied Environment and Development which provided me with a broad academic background in development studies, human geography, and earth sciences.


I have many years experience of proofreading of academic texts from my time as a study assistant for students with a disability at the University of Liverpool and when I worked for the Novel Materials group at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. From my time at the Humboldt-Universität I gained further experience of proofreading physics academic texts. I have been a freelance English language proofreader since 2017.

Confidentiality GUARANTEED

All proofreading projects are carried out personally by me, Dr Adam Newton, and you can have full confidence that your text will be treated with the highest standards of confidentiality.
