In academia it is fundamental that work is clear, coherent and is grammatically accurate. This will not only assist the reader in ensuring that they are able to understand the points that you are making but it will also create a positive, professional, academic tone to your work. This will also aid an examiner who is marking your work to understand the points that you are making, and consequently award you with higher marks.

Over the years we have helped many academics improve their work, from students to professors. Often when proofreading your own work errors begin to go unnoticed due to your engrossment in the content. We are able to take a fresh look at your work and ensure that your work is free from any such errors. We have many success stories of students achieving significantly higher marks due to our academic proofreading service.

Academic Proofreading For ESL Students

If you are an international student, you can rest assured that our editors have the necessary experience and expertise to proofread your work to ensure that it reads grammatically correct, and flows well. We understand that writing in a second language can have its challenges. This is exacerbated when writing academic work. Therefore, we are able to take a fresh look at your work and ensure that your grammar, syntax and style of work is in line with what is expected.

Our Proofreading Services

Due to the subjective nature of academic proofreading and editing and the variations in the time that is often required between different texts we have developed three types of distinct services. We offer three types of proofreading services to meet the needs and requirements of all clients. Our Basic Proofreading service is aimed at individuals who simply require a second pair of eyes to glance over their text to ensure that there are no spelling, grammar or typographical errors. Whereas, our Proofreading & Editing service aims to provide a comprehensive service looking at everything from academic tone, to consistency and layout. The Heavy Editing service covers all the same areas and addresses all the issues as the Proofreading & Editing service with the only difference being that this is aimed at individuals who require greater than average time editing their texts. We offer;

Basic Proofreading

Proofreading & Editing

Heavy Editing

Over the years we have found that this service differentiation works well in ensuring that we are able to cater for the needs of all clients and that we are able to charge fairly and reasonably in accordance with individual requirements.
