Since she is a friend, I would probably charge $2.00 per page?

I would try to estimate how long it would take to complete the job. Let’s say it would take five days at eight hours per day. Then I would charge a flat rate for the five days. I would clarify that once you return it to her, if she wants additional edits or advice that would be a separate job and a separate fee.

I would go by an hourly wage. Since it’s your first job like this, consider just the typical minimum wage in your area (If you ever do this kind of job again, you could ask for more). And be very specific: does she want only grammar and spelling? Or does she also want marks asking for more clarity? If a paragraph is completely awful or confusing, does she want to know, or does she only want proofreading? Non-English types often don’t realize that “edit” can have a number of different meanings.
