Turnaround Time

Customers must allow at least 48 hours for documents fewer than 15,000 words to be corrected and returned to them. For projects between 15,000 and 30,000 words, customers must allow one full week. For book-length projects, please contact Gen to discuss turnaround time.


Please note that if you are not used to writing in American English, you may be best served by Gen’s Copy editing service. She will make necessary corrections, ensure your writing is readable, and provide extensive feedback.

For both proofreading and copy editing services, Gen uses Microsoft Word’s Track Changes feature so you may easily see and accept corrections into your document. You may request that a document follow APA, MLA, or CMS.


When Gen proofreads your document, she examines and corrects:

  • Capitalization
  • Grammar
  • Inconsistencies in text
  • Line breaks
  • Punctuation
  • Sentence structure
  • Spacing
  • Spelling
  • Subject-verb disagreement
  • Trapped white space
  • Other changes needed to ensure an error-free document

Copy editing

Copy editing services correct everything listed under Proofreading, as well as:

  • Diction/word choice
  • Organization
  • Style
  • Syntax
  • Transitions
  • Anything else needed to ensure your writing is clear, consistent, and concise


Gen writes copy that cuts to the chase. She knows how important it is to make a good impression, and fast.


Customers living in Omaha, Nebraska may request to meet with Gen for tutoring services in the areas of writing and speaking in American English. This will be arranged on a per-client basis. Please contact Gen to inquire about these services. An hourly rate of $25/hour will be charged; this is non-negotiable.
