If you have a knack for spotting grammar errors, I have a perfect work at home opportunity for you. You can work at home as a freelance proofreader and editor.
It’s not an easy field to jump into, but today I’d like to share a course that can help you get started.
Proofread Anywhere is a site started by Caitlin Pyle; she’s been proofreading transcripts full-time since 2012. She created the blog, Proofread Anywhere, to share what she knows. Along with the blog, she’s created a few courses, a free 7-day course, and an intensive paid transcript editing course.
Today I’ll cover the free course in detail. If you have any interest in working at home as a proofreader, I highly recommend taking the course to make sure it’s right for you before investing in the paid course.
Here’s a little bit more about the free 7-day proofreading course.
Who Is Caitlin Pyle?
Caitlin has been proofreading full-time for over five years now. She started freelance proofreading transcripts as her primary income and streamlined an extremely efficient proofreading process.
In 2014 she started a blog called ProofreadAnywhere, where she shares tips and discusses freelance proofreading. She now has a few proofreading courses along with a Free 7 Day Course!
What’s Included In The Free Course?
The free course is a 7-day email series that includes the following materials:
- The three biggest mistakes proofread freelancers make
- Solutions to these mistakes
- Seven top marketing strategies to increase your earnings
- The most common errors proofreaders miss
- The ability to ask Caitlin questions
- How newbies can land their first client
- A proofreading grammar quiz
- Tons of freebies including videos, hand-outs, and success stories.
How To Sign Up For The Free Course
To sign up for the free 7-day course, visit ProofreadAnywhere.com and enter your email address. You’ll immediately receive an email with the first lesson. Over the next six days, you’ll receive the other portions of the free course via email.
You can also check out the blog for more tips and advice for completely free!
What About the Paid Course?
If you’re new to freelance proofreading, I recommend taking the free course first, to make sure proofreading is for you.
The paid course is called “Transcript Reading: Theory and Practice Course.” The course consists of 9 modules broken into 55 units.
The nine modules include:
- Marking Up Transcripts (two modules)
- Practice Transcripts
- Communication with Court Reporting
- Billing & Accounting
- Success Mindset
Each unit includes video and text tutorials, handouts, worksheets, and tests. There’s a test in every module that you must pass before moving on to the next.
The nine modules cover every aspect of a freelance proofreading business.
There is support inside the course, where you can directly ask Caitlin questions and get feedback from other students.
You also receive lifetime access to their members-only Facebook Group.
The complete course is $997, but payments are broken up based on modules in the course. You can get started today for $77.
For complete pricing details, I recommend visiting ProofreadAnywhere. They have a breakdown of the payments by each module.
How To Get Started
As you can see, the full course is not cheap. It’s not for someone who thinks it’s going to be easy. It requires hard work and your time, but if you put forth the effort, the paid course does work.
My recommendation is to sign up for the free 7-day course if you have any interest. Caitlin will share more information on the paid course, and you can make your decision at that point.

Again, this isn’t a get rich quick scheme. The course is amazing, but it requires real work and commitment on your part. Do not invest in the paid course until you know it’s right for you and you’re ready to make a commitment!
