Proofread Anywhere Reviews – Legit or Scam?
from 70 reviews Review It is the online home of the Proofread Anywhere, a website created by Caitlin Pyle, a professional proofreader who has been helping others work in proofreading since 2007.

Proofread Anywhere is also now the online home of Caitlin Pyle’s training course, Transcript Proofreading: Theory and Practice™, which is intended to help people with all the training they need to become a professional proofreader.

Though Caitlin says that becoming a proofreader won’t make anyone rich, she says it is an excellent way to earn side income or to even earn a full time income if you are willing to work hard enough.

Understanding the Course

Caitlin Pyle says that before she created her training course, there really wasn’t any real, fully comprehensive proofreading course available online. She wanted to change this, and create a course that didn’t just check the boxes on the skills that proofreaders needed, but that truly prepared people for what it is like to work in the proofreading industry.

To do this, her team reached out to actual court reporters to find out what makes a great proofreader? This feedback was used to create this course from top-to-bottom, resulting in a “thorough, well-planned, rigorous training program for transcript proofreaders.”

Their course covers all important topics, from “formatting and preferences to punctuation and parentheticals” so that their graduates are absolutely as prepared for the reality of working in proofreading as they can be.

How It Works

Proofread Anywhere says that they actually don’t believe that professional proofreading is cut out for everyone, so before you sign up for their paid course they ask all their students to take their seven day free course.

This free course provides prospective students with a new short lesson each day so they can see whether or not proofreading is something they enjoy and can do. If you decide to move forward with their course, you will then sign up for their 30 Day Jumpstart for $197.

Again, the website says they don’t even offer the option for their students to sign up for the entire course at one time, because if anything changes or you decide that this area of business just isn’t for you, Proofread Anywhere doesn’t want you to feel as though you are forced to continue or lose a huge investment.

If you continue past the 30 Day Jumpstart you will move to their 60 Day NextSteps course, which is priced at $400, and once that is successfully completed, you can move on to The Rest of the Course at $300, for a total of $897 for the entire course.

  • Some of you need to learn to give constructive reviews rather than call Caitlin names. How do you REALLY get into proofreading if you don't take this course or a similar one? At least offer better feedback!
  • I appreciate these reviews. They saved me $400! Thank you.
  • Well for starters I looked at the program for months and scared to pull the plug. One, because I am not a word nerd as Caitlyn says. Two, the money. I have been really looking for a more flexible schedule and something that allows me to be at home. I kept reading this is for beginners... so I bought it. It took me about 5 minutes to realize that this is not for beginners. She just barely reviews grammar. I needed an actual program that teaches, I am 47 so it has been a long time for me. So there is no way that could take her test going by what is a in her program. I have been going to other websites and programs trying to actually learn all the rules of grammar. After paying $400 I am definitely not happy about this. So immediately looked at the return policy and of course it says no returns. I think this program is fine for people who are actually good at the grammar rules but if you are a beginner do not buy this.
  • Thank you all so much for taking the time to post your reviews. You are an absolute blessing and saved me from wasting my money!
  • Wow. I found this thread searching for CURRENT (2019) reviews of Caitlyn's Proofread Anywhere course. All of the reviews I've found seem to be 2-3 years old. I've been looking for ANY negative comments and now I have more to work with before making a decision about which company to go with for training.
  • So glad I found this site before I paid for the course. I just finished the free proofreading webinar and it was nothing but an informercial for Caitlyn's paid course. Very disappointed.
  • I’ve been an editor and proofreader for more than 30 years. I haven’t taken the course but considered doing so to learn about the CR industry and formatting and jargon.

    If she really says that you need to get out and find your answers while proofreading a transcript, in a way I’d have to agree with her. I was an English and journalism major in college and I wasn’t prepared to be a good proofreader for my first job. I went to the store, bought a book, and learned the basics. It doesn’t teach you proper sentence structure, parts of a sentence, etc. I learned on the job by have a fabulous reference book and a dictionary at hand and looked up everything that I didn’t know or was unsure of. There is so much to know about the written English language that it would be impossible for her to teach that. With these tools, you will quickly learn what you don’t know about proofreading. Once you get the knack for it and are on pace, you’ll find your own little tricks to ensure that you are doing a great job.

    Caitlyn has a proofreading basics course, which I took only to learn about building a website and attracting clients and what she did to help her become successful.

    As for the other stuff, I cannot coment but as a lifelong proofreader for some major companies, I can tell you that all the teaching in the world cannot make you a good proofreader. You need to get your hands wet.

    I hope this helps.
    • Jamie, you state that you have been proofreading for over 30 years. Shouldn't you proofread your own content before posting it?

      The following are quotes from your post:

      "I learned on the job by have a fabulous reference book"


      I have no proofreading background.

  • its so disappointing to hear all the negative reviews :( i really wanted to sign up for this thinking it was really going to teach me how to proofread. im grateful that all off you have left your honest feedback. Thank you for saving me $400
  • My personal experience with Caitlyn's program is not a good one. I took the portion for proofreading legal transcripts. It's unorganized, and too much of it is left to other sources that she didn't create - videos, articles, etc. Anyone could have slung that together. Not at all worth the money I spent.

    A few negatives I found:

    -One of her online tests didn't work properly, creating a stressful testing situation for me. She didn't respond when I provided feedback on that.

    -Her tests/answer keys are rife with errors. I'm not sure how anyone can learn properly from that.

    -She never stops marketing. Each lesson is filled with affiliate links and opportunities for her to sell her eBooks.

    -Her teaching ability is sorely lacking. She is scattered, and, at times, seems overwhelmed by her own material.

    I know there have been a few successful people with the legal transcript proofreading, but one had years of legal experience. The others are making a run-of-the-mill part-time income.

    Buyer beware.
  • I got hacked in Jan. 2019 and lost all previous info. I had to replace all of my electronics and get a new email & passwords. It's for this reason that I need to cancel my accounts with you, esp. "Margie Holds Court" which is taking money out of my bank acct monthly. I can't get into my acct. to cancel because I'm no longer on Facebook. Could you please cancel my acct effective immediately.
