Tailwind Proofreading

Legal transcript proofreading and more

I help court reporters by providing quality proofreading services to ensure that they turn in accurate and clean transcripts. I plan to complete Transcript Proofreading: Theory and Practice, a comprehensive course specifically designed to train proofreaders in the art of transcript proofreading within the next few months.

About Me

Hey there! My name is Jimmy Baum. I’m a former teacher and full-time proofreader and traveler. I write at Among the Stones, a travel, writing, and technology blog. Tailwind Proofreading is also hosted here for simplicity. I love proofreading because it allows me to work for myself from anywhere in the world using my iPad. When not proofreading, I’m exploring other countries with my wife, taking photos, reading novels, and working on my own fiction writing.
