DocEditor Testimonials
Need to be sure of the DocEditor before you hand over your precious work? That’s quite fair enough – I’d be exactly the same. Here are my testimonials.
Business editing

In my capacity as Senior Research Manager at the City & Guilds Centre for Skills Development, I worked with Cathy on a number of projects over the space of two years, from research reports to book chapters. In each instance, Cathy's work as a proofreader was thorough, and her editing was sensitive and thoughtful. She also ran a helpful day proofreading course for the staff in our team, which raised our overall writing standards.

Working with her was easy: her responses were always clear and prompt. I would definitely recommend her services.

Business writing
Cathy Tingle is an excellent business-oriented writer and editor. She was responsible for the production of the City & Guilds Annual Review and a significant number of the corporate publications for both national and international audiences which ranged from senior stakeholders to young people. Cathy embraces an eye for detail with a customer-focussed approach which delivers excellent results. 

She combines a very professional attitude with an engaging personable approach, and is always very responsive to work with. Her professionalism is evidenced by the delivery of first class results. I have no hesitation in recommending her work and approach.

Academic editing

Doing a dissertation for an MSc is one thing but doing it in counselling is something else. I failed my first dissertation so getting it right on my second attempt was really important. Cathy was recommended to me through a work colleague.

Time was of the essence. As soon as I spoke with Cathy I knew she was what I needed. She listens to what you need her to do and articulates it in a very clear way back to you. She is very flexible in her approach and very accommodating in meeting your deadlines. Her edited feedback is clear and concise.

Cathy is grounded, reassuring and really knows her stuff. She is methodical in her approach. Cathy has a real knowledge of writing, editing and academia as she herself has a PhD. This is in itself hugely beneficial as her understanding of editing and referencing are second to none. I am pleased to say I passed my resubmitted dissertation.

I would highly recommend Cathy. You will not be disappointed, you’ll be impressed. Most importantly, she does the job you need her to do, to a high standard.
