Proofreading for Students

Student Rates Essays and Dissertations

I will help you to raise your thesis to the highest professional standard by proofreading it for typos, spelling, punctuation, capitalisation, consistency of line spacing, font, and general presentation. Additionally, if English is not your first language or if you have dyslexic issues, I am able to check your project by looking out for sense and grammar, without intruding incorrectly on the content or organisation of your study.

I will read your work online using Word’s Track Changes, and return it in a format that allows you to accept or reject any suggested corrections. In this way you maintain complete control over your final work. I will use a light touch, only intervening where necessary, and am sensitive to every student’s individual way of expressing themselves.

If you send me two or three pages of your work I will quote either per hour (student rate, depending on whether the work needs a straight read or more complex editing) or, if you tell me your word count, I can quote a flat fee. At busy times of the academic year please make sure you contact me in good time and book ahead where possible.
