My Mission.

My mission is to provide my clients with a personalised, thorough and reliable service. Whether you're in the business or academic realm, it's my mission to make sure that you get the best service.

About Me

I am a perfectionist! I am always on the lookout for any typos, misplaced apostrophes, and continuity, and I'm also a Microsoft Word guru.

My first job was as a claims typist at an insurance company in Johannesburg. When I left to go travelling eight years later, I was the Executive PA to the General Manager. In the UK, what was supposed to be a four-week assignment turned into a four-year stretch as PA to four directors of a helicopter finance company (ask me about the time I spoke to Prince Charles’ private secretary – the company arranged the finance for the Queen’s private helicopter).

I returned to South Africa in 2003, and after a brief stint at a sports management company (I worked for Ernie Els’ manager), I joined an insurance underwriter as PA to the CEO. Within a few years, I was promoted to Administration and Communications Manager, in charge of internal and external communication, advertising, promotional material, as well as arranging company events. I was responsible for all company documents, and was in charge of the company’s FAIS compliance.

A-Proofed, was borne in January 2015 out of my love for proofreading.

I have very good eyesight and can spot a mistake instantaneously! If a space was left in at the beginning of a sentence, or omitted before brackets in one sentence but not in another, I will catch it. If a name is spelled one way on page 7, and a different way on page 287, I will notice. In fact, if anyone has missed anything, I am your last hope to keep the error out of the finished product. In short, I am the key to perfection. I am very detail-orientated, and not to mention – a spelling and grammar snob!

What my clients say

KIM!!! We got 73% for the thesis. I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH!!!

BOITUMELO MOTSOATSOE Master’s Student – Wits University

I believe that a case study needs to be performed on your business, to remind others what excellent service looks like. Kim, you really exceeded all my expectations. I am so proud of my final document. Your insights, language prowess, and layout skill really transformed my document into a piece of art. You were there for me at all hours of the day, and put up with my eccentric personality, with all the grace and patience of a true professional.

RIYAD MOOSA PhD Student – Tshwane University of Technology

Words fail ... I cannot thank Kim enough for the miracle she performed literally 48 hours before my submission. Not only did she check spelling, grammar, and formatting, but she also made sure that I stayed calm and focused! THANK YOU Ma!

BOITUMELO MOTSOATSOE Master’s Student – Wits University

We have used Kim a number of times for proofreading client web content, and have been impressed with her attention to detail as well as her timeous delivery.

Matt Besseling Plastic Duck Armada

If you feel your document is worth reading, it’s worth being proofread by Kim. It is clear that Kim is passionate about her work. She is a perfectionist and a pleasure to work with. She has helped us on numerous projects and always gives great advice on how to improve language, readability, and layout. Her wide knowledge of language, grammar, and punctuation makes her invaluable to any project.

Jenny van den Berg Rhymes with Orange

As the Admin Manager of my two businesses, Kim is the most clear-headed and organised person I have ever worked with. Her attention to detail and ability to see things clearly and in context make her invaluable to any business. I trust her implicitly to deliver what she commits to doing, and she always goes the extra mile. A bonus is her fabulous sense of humour and love of the work that she does.

Susan Sloan Kairos Recruitment and Kairos Dance and Yoga Studio

For the past two years, Kim has assisted us with proofreading, spelling, and tenses corrections, etc. on our monthly newsletters. This makes a huge impact on our professionalism and we receive very positive feedback from our clients! I can highly recommend Kim and, honestly, she is a huge asset to our business and a part of our success!

Petri van den Berg 7th Heaven Scuba

Just sitting here preparing for a presentation and thinking how blessed I am to have met you. Thank you Kim for always proofreading boring, exciting, and under-pressure material, and communicating so efficiently with me. You are an absolute gift to me!

Kerstin Jatho 4Seeds Consulting

As a business owner, I’m often multitasking various responsibilities all the time. English and grammar were never my strong point, and in business this has always been my Achilles’ heel. On numerous occasions I have outsourced my letter writing and formatting to Kim from A-Proofed, where she was able to produce an outcome that saved me time, energy, frustration, and produced the desired result of professionalism. I am extremely satisfied with the work Kim has provided for ES Brokers, and would highly recommend her company for proofreading and document layout.

Andrew Ensor-Smith ES Brokers

I’m so glad I decided to work with you. Our monthly newsletters are so much more professional thanks to your involvement. You’ve also taken the issue of compiling and sending them off our hands, which has really simplified things and saved us so much time. Thanks!
