What Some Students Have To Say About The Course

"The Intro to Proofreading Course had a lot of great advice and tips, and Phon writes in a way that is engaging and easy to understand. Thank you, Phon, for the time and effort you put into the course!"  — Julia G.

"I liked your course a lot. Especially for a newbie, you definitely hit on the key aspects of starting a proofreading career/hustle.  Day 5, I think, was the most valuable to me because it delved more into the business aspects of conducting yourself as a professional and dug into the nitty gritty issue of money.  Something I think all of us students are concerned about! I also really loved that you had an assignment for us to do with an answer key. That was fun! And it gave me the opportunity to sort of affirm whether or not this career path/hustle was a good fit for me."   — C.B.

"I was recommended this course by an editor friend of mine, who said I'd learn the proper way to proofread. I definitely learned a lot for free, and ended up buying the ebook. Thanks, Phon!" — Andrea J.
