Proofreading and Editing

Essay Proofreading and Editing
This is your opportunity to have your work proofread and checked for errors by an experienced university lecturer, author and editor, and professional historian. I will find typos, check grammar and spelling, ensure that your essay is properly documented, and that your arguments make sense. This is an essential step to ensure that you are not exposed to accusations of plagiarism, that your essay is not going to lose marks for sloppiness, and that your arguments and analysis are lucid and robust. All essays submitted for proofreading will be returned with thorough comments and editorial suggestions.

For essays/dissertations/theses longer than 5000 words, please contact for a quote.

Discussion of comments
