About Me

Hi, I'm Austeja!

I'm a former music teacher who became a freelance proofreader and got my certification from Proofread Anywhere's General Proofreading: Theory & Practice course. Ever since I was little, I have been obsessed with books and words. I very much enjoy reading and working with all kinds of fiction books. Contemporary romance, fantasy, thrillers, mysteries, historical books—you name it!

I have bachelor's and master's degrees in Music Performance and Teaching, so I experienced firsthand what it means to write a thesis and how exhausting it is to write, edit, and proofread it all by yourself. If you need another set of eyes to check your academic paper, especially in the Art or Music category, I will gladly help you.

My biggest passion in life is to watch authors flourish and get the recognition they deserve for their work, so let me be a small part of your success, and you will make me incredibly happy.


I'm most familiar with the Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) and The Merriam-Webster Dictionary as reference guides, but I can also work with an in-house style guide if you have one.

I can proofread a wide variety of documents, such as (but not limited to):

Books & Manuscripts:

Academic Writing*:

* I have in-depth knowledge of classical and contemporary music research

Business Documents:

Digital Content:

Proofreading involves correcting spelling, grammar, punctuation mistakes, word choice (including homophones), obvious missing words, and other grammatical mistakes in writing. Please note that I will not accept an initial draft, character sketch, or mere idea. This service is only offered if your manuscript has been professionally edited previously. I will not make changes to sentence structure; I will read through your document, find and mark all errors, and return the corrected document to you. All corrections will be made using the "track changes" feature in Word or "suggesting mode" in Google Docs.

Here is an example of proofreading:


My prices are based on 250 words per page written in 12 pt font Times New Roman with 1-inch margins:

Prices can vary depending on factors such as project complexity, technical detail, turnaround time, and your budget.
