General Proofreading: Theory and Practice™ (GPTP)
teaches you how to transform your ability to spot errors into a way to generate extra income -- from anywhere in the world -- even if you have no prior experience.
Do you…
  • proofread restaurant menus while out on a date?
  • cringe when you see a misspelled word on a TV commercial?
  • feel embarrassed for an author when you see comma splices?
  • feel cheated when you buy a book and get hit with 10 typos in the first paragraph alone? 
 
Did you nod to yourself several times there? Yep?
That means you probably have the makings of a great proofreader.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a stay-at-home mom, a retiree, a millennial,
or an employee who hates their 9-to-5 desk job.

Stop proofing for free… 
and start making some money with those eagle eyes of yours.

Proofreaders are in demand. Anytime something is put into print, it needs to have another pair of eyes to look it over and catch anything the author missed.

Think novels, textbooks, blog posts, newspapers, cookbooks, resumes… even family Christmas letters. You name it, it needs a proofreader!
Hi! I’m Caitlin!
I help proofreaders earn extra income from anywhere in the world…even if you’re starting from scratch.

My passion for general proofreading started when I studied abroad in Germany for a year in college and would help students proofread their college essays. I loved using my eagle eyes to catch errors and help others turn their writing into masterpieces.

Because I was so passionate about proofreading, I started Proofread Anywhere as a blog back in 2014, and it’s exploded since then. Through my proofreading career, I’ve been able to proofread literally anywhere, including a whole year I spent in South America!

I wanted to share my passion for general proofreading with you -- so you can grow your own freelance business like I did. That’s why I’ve created the all-new General Proofreading: Theory and Practice™ course.

Living the life you want is possible for anyone willing to do what it takes to get there. I've never met anyone who said it wasn't worth it!

Students from Proofread Anywhere love to share their success and excitement!
There’s so much about freelancing to LOVE.
Do you want to...
  • have the financial freedom to stop living paycheck to paycheck? 
  • plan a yearly family getaway? 
  • not worry about how you will afford the next car payment? 
  • be able to renovate your bathroom? put in new carpet? replace a leaky roof?
  • just have some extra spending money each month to spend on yourself?
Or maybe it’s to go BIG and quit your 9-to-5 schedule!

Forget the irritating commutes with terrible drivers and red lights every two minutes. Stop reporting to a boss who drives you nuts. Don’t deal with your coworker who smacks gum in the cubicle next to you.

Maybe you want to travel more and see the world!

Or maybe you’re an introvert who loves the comfort of your own home, surrounded by all the ease and convenience of having everything you’re used to while wearing pajama pants any time of the day.

Being able to do your laundry in between projects, work out in the middle of the day, grab lunch with your significant other, not have to schedule off for an appointment. Heck, even do your grocery shopping in the middle of the day when it’s not busy!

You get the idea. The freelance life is awesome.
There are no…
  • Business hours
  • Nagging bosses
  • Long commutes
  • Or vacation hour requests
...in the proofreading industry.
Unlike many other English- or writing-type jobs that require an exhausting cycle of pitching to a magazine or agent and waiting for an acceptance, you KNOW that you’re getting paid for every hour you spend on your work -- for every page you read.
And it's time to make it YOURS.

Don’t just take my word for it!
See what some of my graduates have said...
Before we dive in and get started, I want to be really upfront and honest with you.
With this course, I give you ALL the tools you need to be successful..

But it’s up to YOU to decide what YOU do with those tools. It’s like if a chef provided you quality ingredients, their top-of-the-line kitchen, and instructions on how to make a five-star meal -- you have everything at your disposal. But it’s in YOUR hands to decide if you will put in the time and the effort to create the end result. The meal isn’t going to make itself!

It’s the same with this course -- and any other course. Enrolling in a course doesn’t entitle you to success.
This isn’t a get-rich-quick course. Proofreading isn’t a world where you go through a course and then have clients waiting for you at the end. It takes time and a lot of hard work to build a business. It’s rewarding, for sure -- but if you’re not up for it, just don’t enroll.

I mean it -- if you’re just looking for something to rush through and then refuse to put in the effort to build a quality reputation in the proofreading world, turn around now! This course isn’t for you.

It’s up to YOU to take time to go through each lesson in the course and carefully study
and think through all the lessons.

To download all the worksheets and take time to work through them.
To hone your skills.
To learn to be efficient.
To make the effort to build quality relationships with potential clients.
To succeed.
How long does the course take to complete?

While the average time is under a month, the course is entirely self-paced, and you have lifetime access. You can take as little or as long as you want to complete the course.  

How long do I have access to the course material?
The course fee includes LIFETIME ACCESS to the course material and the Facebook group. This includes any course updates or added content.
How flexible are proofreading jobs?

Work-from-home proofreading jobs are super flexible. Since you are your own boss, you can decide which clients to work with and what projects you want to work on.
Is this a good fit for me?

If you can spot errors from a mile away and are determined to provide excellent work to your clients, then yes!
Will this course make me a certified proofreader?
No. The training will provide you with the skills and resources you need, but it is not a certification course. You will receive a certificate of completion if you purchase Ignite Plus, but it does not serve as a certification in any way. There is no official proofreading certification in the United States.

 
How do I know if this course will work for me?
We have designed the course to ensure that you have all the content you need to become a successful proofreader. It’s up to YOU to have the confidence to complete the course and implement everything you’ve learned. 
Is the market oversaturated with proofreaders?
The great thing about being a general proofreader is that there are many markets where you can find work. None of these markets are oversaturated with quality proofreaders.

How much content is covered?

The course includes 40+ lessons spanning 8 info-packed modules. 
Why should I take this course over other proofreading courses out there?
There are a few courses out there that teach the mechanics of proofreading but not how to actually find work. We offer both, plus lifetime support and updates! It's like getting all your continuing education for free.
I don’t have a college degree/major in English. Can I still become a proofreader?
Absolutely! You do NOT need a college degree to become a proofreader. All you need is a pair of eagle eyes, the drive to succeed, and the proper training under your belt. 
Does this course help me find proofreading work?
Yes! We give you the resources and tools you need to find work. BUT you need to implement these tools and be creative to get (and keep!) your clients. We are not a job placement agency. 

How is the course content delivered?
 
100% online via worksheets, handouts, video, and text. Take it anywhere :-)
Will I get rich as a proofreader after taking this course?
Your income depends solely on you. This isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme. The more you know your craft and the harder you work at marketing and providing excellence, the more money you’ll make. There is always an upper limit to how much you can earn when you exchange your time for money, but investing in improving your speed, skill, and efficiency will push that limit.

Is there a live component to the course?
Yes! The course includes access to a private Facebook group where you can chat with and seek help from your fellow proofreading classmates -- and me!
What kind of equipment and materials do I need?
An iPad or computer and a good internet connection are all you need to get started!
Do you have a refund policy? 
I have given you lots of information upfront in order for you to make a really good decision about if this is a good fit for you before you purchase the course. I guarantee you’ll have all the support, resources, and tools you’ll need -- but I cannot guarantee you’ll actually use them, nor can I make a guarantee to your future clients you can actually proofread well. Only you can do that! For these two reasons, I do not offer refunds on course enrollment fees.
