Are you an undergraduate or postgraduate student working on a dissertation or thesis, essay or other assignment?

Have you been slaving away for the longest time, propped up by caffeine until late into the night, researching and writing, wrestling with complex ideas, struggling to articulate convoluted theories?

If you have, there’s a good chance you can’t see the wood for the trees right now. You’ve rewritten your work so often, anguishing over every sentence, that you probably wouldn’t see a simple typo if it charged at you like an elephant.

Which is why you need a proofreader

Whether you’re an overseas student for whom English is a second (or even third) language, or a native speaker looking for someone to give their work a final polish, I can clean up your manuscript so that your content shines through.

No one should proofread their own work (invariably, you see what you think you’ve written instead of what’s actually there), and spellcheck software will only take you so far, flagging up certain mistakes but missing others. It’s not like having an actual person, a fresh pair of eyes, go through your work with a fine-tooth comb, eradicating errors of spelling, grammar, punctuation and layout, and picking up on any inconsistencies that overfamiliarisation with the text has made it virtually impossible for you to spot yourself.

You’ve worked hard, so make sure you get the mark you deserve

Although I can’t rewrite what you’ve written, or intervene in your ideas and arguments, I can certainly give the finished product a professional sheen, making it easier to read for the person ultimately responsible for assessing it, who won’t be distracted by unnecessary errors that reflect badly on you, the author.

So don’t fall at the last hurdle. Drop me a line now, either by emailing me or giving me a ring on 07890 690 154.
