Proofreading and copy editing course tutors
We have two tutors on our proofreading and editing course. Julian Brouwer and Shuna Meade are both active, professional proofreaders and copyeditors with decades of experience between them.
They will provide you with personal feedback on every assignment, answer your questions and give you expert careers guidance, so you get the very best out of the course.
Proofreading course tutor 1: Julian Brouwer
Proofreader | Copyeditor | freelance journalist
Julian Brouwer has worked as a proofreader for a group of newspapers and a host of other London-based organisations. So, he is used to finding errors that even eagle-eyed subeditors miss.
He is still very much involved within the proofreading industry, and runs a successful news agency, Manhattan News, which supplies US-based news and features to national papers in the UK. He used to have his own column in the Daily Express.
Julian has also provided proofreading and editing training for some well respected businesses, including Cancer research UK, Santander, United Nations and Virgin Holidays.
He is often praised by our proofreading course learners, for his good-humoured and encouraging manner.
