Brett's picture

   (Philip) Brett Batson, BSc | FREELANCE PROOFREADER
based in Daventry, East Midlands



"I was recommended by friends to use this proofreading service for my master's degree thesis. I recieved my work back, which is more than fifteen thousand words, after couple of days with very helpful notes and recommendations to check my word choice when needed. I am very pleased with my paper, prompt response, speed of service, price, and overall the professional customer service. Brett is a very approachable and friendly gentleman. I will definitely come back again for all future papers and would certainly recommend to friends."

"Brett's work was outstanding from start to finish. His estimate was reasonable, he was quick to understand the requirements and very quick to complete it to a high standard. Responsive too when further edits were required, all aligned to his standard pricing. When clarification of the more obscure content was needed he laid this out perfectly for us in email and on the page for review. As well as the text, he formatted the document exactly to our specification. It was a pleasure working with him and I hope to use his services again."

Maritime Resolve

"I endorse Brett for Editing and Proofreading. He done a very professional job on the dissertation he had to proofread and edit. I would recommend to other people requiring this type of service and I would most certainly use him again."


"Brett helped me with two academic essays and I found his work to be very professional, with the ability to work under pressure to tight deadlines. As I am not a native English speaker I found his comments and suggestions for improving the readability of my English very helpful. I would recommend him for anyone seeking a professional proofreader."

Rogerio Silva - Student

"Brett was an absolute dream to work with. Everything from his attention to detail to his prompt communication resulted in a significant leap in quality for a project we had been working on for some time. Brett covered a number of different aspects, including grammatical errors, design irregularities, and suggesting possible areas for improvement. For these reasons, we will certainly be returning to PBB for future projects, and in turn, I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a speedy, yet highly professional service."

Gianluca Iorizzo - Marketing Executive

"Brett checked proofs of a GCSE Maths textbook for me. He was extremely professional, with an excellent eye for detail and an ability to work within very tight deadlines."

Caroline Walton - CUP

"We used Brett to proof read our Sports Awards Programme in November 2014. This is the first time we have used such a service and we were very impressed. The work was completed in a timely and professional manner and we were extremely pleased with the results. We will definitely be using Brett again in the near future."

Joanna Danvers - Sports Development Officer

"A quick, professional and accurate service provided."

Working in industry for the last 30+ years I have acquired a number of 'transferable' skills that I utilise in my proofreading business to help you as a client. Here is what one or two people have said:

"Brett has a unique blend of technical, administrative, and leadership skills. I was particularly impressed with Brett's communication skills (both written and oral) and his ability to communicate complex topics ... I found Brett to be eminently reliable. He has excellent organizational skills and an impeccable work ethic. Those traits along with his attention to detail and strong judgement in prioritizing the many items on his plate, are a powerful combination ... "

Michael Schiller - IT Security Director

"I found him to be consistently pleasant, tackling all assignments with dedication. Within my organization he assumed a leadership role in which he was inspiring, motivating towards his team and was always extraordinarily helpful in other areas of the company where his presence was requested. He has excellent written and verbal communication skills, is extremely organized, can work fully independently and is able to follow through to ensure that the job gets done. Furthermore, Brett has shown working on his own initiative to bridge cross regional boundaries (US & Asia Pacific) in leading teams in adopting equal business processes and significantly improving collaboration ...
