services for students

I provide proofreading services to students at any level from universities across the globe. I know that writing academic texts is challenging: especially so if you are not writing in your mother tongue. As a service for students, I focus even more on the word choice and grammar, ensuring that your language isn’t a barrier to your arguments. I will make sure your text reads clearly and correctly- but, most importantly, it is still your voice that the readers hear.

What do I check?

  • spelling, punctuation and grammar
  • consistency in style, spelling, typography, layout and content
  • page numbers and headings
  • if the content flows and is logically arranged
  • if there are any confusing line or word breaks
  • if illustrations, captions, labels, chapter titles, indexes, cross-references, etc. correspond with each other and with the text

Specialist areas

I work on a wide variety of content in all fields but I especially welcome work in the following:

  • Humanities/social sciences
  • ESL/TEFL/English language teaching
  • linguistics
  • teacher education
  • adult education


If your text is very long, e.g. a PhD thesis, I am happy to proofread, and invoice you, per chapter.

A note on regulations

You are responsible for checking the regulations of your university to ensure the use of a professional proofreader is allowed. Some universities do not allow external help, or may restrict what I can do for you. If your university has any special rules and regulations regarding the use of proofreaders, please forward these to me before I begin work on your project. I will proofread your work in accordance with these rules, amending or reducing my usual service as necessary.
