For students

Academic services

I offer a proofreading service for undergraduate and postgraduate students. I can help you with essays, theses or dissertations, using the ‘track changes’ and comments functions in Word so you can easily identify the suggestions I’ve made. I can also proofread academic journal submissions.

My service consists of:

  • correcting spelling, punctuation and grammar and ensuring consistency
  • highlighting sentences or passages of text that are overly complex or unclear
  • drawing attention to formatting errors
  • highlighting errors in labelling tables or figures
  • checking references against citations.

I specialise in working with non-native English speakers so my service is ideal for international students. I’ve also worked with students who have dyslexia.

Although I’m happy to work across a wide range of subjects, I have particular knowledge and experience in the following areas:

  • media, journalism and communications
  • current affairs and politics
  • theatre and drama
  • history
  • literature.

I will abide by your university’s guidelines on proofreading. To avoid plagiarism my academic service does not include:

  • re-writing or editing your work
  • changing or developing ideas and arguments
  • changing the formatting
  • reducing or increasing the word count to fit a specified limit.

If you would like more information on how I can help you with your assessed work please contact me.
