I need my document to be proofread. It is about GMO's management. Can anybody help please?

Sorry to be vague but this is my first time and I did not know how it worked. So, the document is my master's thesis, which was completed and submitted in 2008. It was never fully proofread, however, I have it on my academia page and it is often consulted, so I would like it to present a corrected version. It is 8462 words long which I can upload if this is the procedure. As for the budget, an English teacher asked me for 15 pounds per hour, is this the usual price? I have no clue.
If you email me your document I'll give you a quote for proofing it. Many of my clients are professors and academic journals, so I am experienced at copy editing and proofreading academic research papers. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
The English teacher's quote of 15 British pounds per hour sounds reasonable. My only caution would be to check that the teacher has knowledge of the particular requirements of academic editing. I recommend asking for a sample edit of 3-5 pages, which I will also be happy to provide you.
I have two questions:
1. What style guide (e.g., APA, MHRA) did you follow when writing your thesis?
2. What is your time frame for having the proofing done?
One other note: it often happens that a document needs more than basic proofreading -- that it would benefit from copy editing. Here's a brief explanation of the difference between the two:
I received it, thanks.
I have to clear up a misunderstanding -- evidently I didn't express myself clearly! I am a professional copy editor and a number of my clients are professors and academic journals.
I will review your MS and send you a quote.
