STEPHEN DAVIS. 

PROOFREADER/HISTORIAN/ WRITER/ METEOROLOGIST/ LONDON WALKS GUIDE/ MONASTIC RESEARCHER/CRIMINAL PSYCHOLOGIST.   

Hello,

My name is Stephen Davis and I have always had a passion for learning, especially in History. 

A former civil servant with over 24 years' experience as a Stock Control Processor, mostly from 1982 - 2006, I eventually became a little bored with the job.

 

It was in 2006 that I looked towards studying for a University degree.

Having taken the appropriate entry interview, I went on to study for a Bachelor's degree, graduating with a BA History (Hons) from the University of Hull in 2012.

So from 2006 my life was completely changed, because in that year a good friend informed me that a course of study at the  university was the best move I could possibly make, and that friend was absolutely right. 

During my time at the university I have learned a great many new skills.  Examples of my recent new experiences include: Classical music presentation (2012), Meteorology (2014), Proofreading (2016) and the latest adventure being Criminal Psychology (2017) to name but a few. 

In the same year I introduced a new philosophy of my own making - " Life is a learning process", and yes, I still believe that to be the case for me today, as education will always be  an essential and enjoyable part of my life. 

So 11 years following my initial graduation I have never looked back.

I am now well away from the rigid 9 -5 office routine and am very proud to be able to say that I am still very much in touch and involved with the business of historical research, my latest adventure being in 'Stuart' History (1649 -1660).  

PROOFREADING SERVICE.

I am a reliable Proofreader who is always available for continuous support and guidance to clients from a varied range of academic backgrounds.

My service includes working towards a high quality professional level of service with attention to detail and determination to succeed with clients at all times. 

I am most happy to assist scholars and researchers in achieving their set targets and overall objectives to a professional standard. 

Finally, I currently work for the British Red Cross and have experience working with non-native English speaking clients on a variety of writing material. 

My business hours are currently: 
Mon/Tues/Wed: 9am – 1pm.

Meetings are by appointment only but alternative times can be arranged as appropriate.
