Thank you so much for the wonderful work you did on ensuring everything was A1 in both the text and solutions. You spotted many errors that I had overlooked and thanks to you we have 2 books which I can safely say have minimal if any errors in them. It was a pleasure to work with you and I must say I was very taken by the detail you put into proofing documents.

Padraic O’Luanaigh, author of Dynamic Maths LC Higher Books

Many thanks for this and for all your hard work on the proofs. I enjoyed working with you and your input has been very valuable.

Linda Harvie, Oxford University Press

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with you in recent months. You have a wonderful way with authors – and you faced some highly challenging scripts.
