    This has been an invaluable course for a beginner like me. I’ve learned so much and I appreciate the pros who have made themselves available to help me.

    I took Proofreading 101 to improve my Grammar and learn to be an editor. The lessons met my expectations. The correction of the homework was the most useful.

  3. Sharon Keller Johnson

    The course was well written, and I’m a visual learner. It introduced me to proofreading, and I not only learned from the course, but it introduced me to a number of invaluable sources. I loved the encouragement. Jenne was very kind, and I found her comments enlightening. I appreciated that this course was clear enough for beginners but complete enough for those editors who had experience and were trying to brush up on their skills.
