About me

Hi, my name is Jo Currington. I have over 20 years of experience in developing and delivering high quality learning programmes as a science and French teacher and tutor.

I’m a grammar and spelling bee who loves learning about new products and explaining complex information in a compelling way that gets results. My care and attention to detail whilst working to tight deadlines helped to ensure rapid growth of my tutoring business over the past 5 years and client success often well beyond their expectations.

Why use Star Copy Edit?                                                            

I have recently re-trained as a proofreader to distinction level with the College of Media and Publishing.

I hold charter mark status which is your guarantee that my work is in line with industry standards. I am also training in copywriting. This allows me to bring you the freshest ideas on writing engaging and clearly written copy using the latest marketing techniques including SEO. I work from home which allows me to offer competitive rates and fast response times.

I work in all 3 areas of proofreading, copyediting and copywriting. Additionally, I have skills in french to english translation and audio transcription and can help you develop training programmes.

What’s the difference between a copywriter, a copyeditor and a proofreader you may be wondering?

A proofreader checks a document to ensure consistency and accuracy of style, font, spelling, grammar, referencing etc. but they don’t change the text itself.

A copy editor will do the work of a proofreader plus fact checking and advising on copyright/data protection laws. They will re-write any text that need clarifying.

A copy writer produces original, engaging copy using marketing techniques for SEO etc in line with the brief and rules laid down by the advertising standards agency. They also check it in the same way as a proofreader or copyeditor would do.

So, if you need help with any of the above, do give me a shout on 07984 405691 or drop me a line at
