 Academic Proofreading for Students

Sometimes, when you’re in the thick of writing your dissertation or thesis, you can miss small errors that can make a difference to your final grade. Let us take care of the little things.

We work with students of all ages and from all over the world from undergraduate to PhD level. We can work in UK, American, or Australian English.

Commercial Proofreading and Copy Editing

You might think it’s just us picky grammar nerds who notice spelling errors, but it could be putting up to 59% of your customers off if your website is poorly worded and full of mistakes.

We know that people are busy, because we are too. We also get that not everybody has a thesaurus, dictionary and portable grammar guide in their heads. We all have our strengths, and this is ours, so why not get us to ensure that your website, marketing materials, client communications and reports are up to scratch?
