Academic


I love working with both undergraduate and postgraduate students to help polish their dissertations, theses and essays and to help them achieve their best. Academic work can be proofread but not edited as it must be the student’s own work.

When enquiring would you let me know:
The word count, which referencing system is used and any deadlines.
I will also request the university’s guidelines.
Proofreading is: Proofreading is not:
Working on the edited text in final layout. Working on a draft text.
Correcting any essential errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation. Changing your mind on spelling preferences.
Minor changes for sense, if required. Rephrasing to flow or sound better.
References and citations correctly formatted. Reordering or changing the structure or layout.
Tables and illustrations consecutively numbered and placed correctly. Adding new text or illustrations.
Style decisions applied. Accuracy of references and citations.
  Checking index page numbers.

How much will it cost? The average cost for proofreading a PhD thesis is £700–800 based on 80,000 words. MA dissertations would be in the region of £2,000 including references and bibliography based on 15,000 words. Essays and articles would be assessed individually.
