Hello, I'm Rachel. I’m an editor, proofreader and technical writer.
I specialise in mathematics for education, science, and engineering. I also work with non-publishing clients, particularly in the hospitality sector.
Over the last 3 years, I have worked with publishers on projects for maths textbooks, scripts for revision videos, and online resources for maths students: from KS2 to A level, dealing with basic concepts, GCSE revision skills and practise, and developing students’ understanding of A level content.
I also work with non-publishing clients to produce clear, concise documentation for Health and Safety training, and to develop accurate and appealing promotional literature.
I am an Entry-Level Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP).
- Editing, including development editing
- Answer checking [maths for education up to A level]
- Writing: (re)writing promotional literature for a streamlined, easy-to-read result; content for maths textbooks and online resources; company policy documentation.
Before starting Hamar & Hamar in 2014, I spent ten years teaching mathematics in secondary schools, including roles as Head of Department and Leading Teacher of Mathematics. I also worked in the engineering industry as a project engineer and marketing manager.
When I'm not working, I keep myself busy growing weeds in the garden, walking the dogs and making patchwork quilts.
