Amanda George


I am a native English speaker with a degree in Latin and English from Nottingham University, where I was also editor of the student magazine. A decade working at Heffers Booksellers in Cambridge gave me an invaluable insight into the world of bookselling, customer service and publishing.


As Publications Officer at St John's College, Cambridge, I produced top-quality literature, which required superb attention to detail, flexibility, excellent organisation skills and an ability to deal with people at all levels. I speak basic Italian, Spanish and French, and I am a fast touch-typist with good IT skills. Since 2009 I have worked as a freelance proofreader and copy-editor on a variety of projects with publishers, universities, charities, businesses, book authors, students and academics from around the world.


In my spare time I run The Sanctuary Angels, a voluntary organisation that I created in 2009, which raises vital funds for animal rescues around the world ( This involves, among other things, creating and checking all of the copy for our social media and outreach work.

Perfect Words by Amanda George is a professional proofreading, copy-editing and copywriting service. I can help with your academic project, book draft, blog, brochure, website, CV or covering letter – in short, anything that is written that you want to look its very best. Excellent customer service, professionalism and integrity are guaranteed.
