Services: Professional Proofreading

Proofreading from $10

Our minimum price is $10 (up to 300 words). A 2000 word undergraduate essay would be $45 with 24-hour return. All documents are priced by the number of words. When you enter the word count into the form, you will see the price before you place the order. We don't charge extra if English is your second (or third!) language. The few optional extras that cost more (faster return time, reduced length) are clearly marked.

Compare my prices with major competitors. My low overhead and personal service means you get better results for less money!

Academic proofreading specialists

*We proofread many types of documents: newsletters, proposals, consultant's reports, web sites, brochures, and product catalogues. But the bulk of our work is academic writing. We proofread, edit, and correct documents from admissions essays to Ph.D. dissertations.

We will return to you a document with all grammatical and stylistic changes made and documented in "Track Changes."

Your responsibility as a student is to develop a thesis, do research, and write your own essay. We don't do that work for you; however, we will ensure that your essay is not penalized for grammar, so your mark reflects your skill as a researcher and your understanding of the material. The corrected version we return will retain your writing voice as much as possible. If you review the changes we have made, you learn how to improve your writing. You can also request comments on your writing.

Basic proofreading

We all make mistakes. If your document is well-written, but you want me to proofread it for minor errors, then choose Basic Proofreading. I will review your document for all the comma errors, agreement errors, or mis-used semicolons that are easy to overlook. I will not fix your references—if you need references checked, choose "Essay Editing."

APA proofreading

Many students struggle with APA, Chicago, and other citation styles. We will ensure that whatever citation style you are using is correctly formatted and presented, including your reference list.

Some projects we have completed

With more than 45 years of experience in writing and editing, I've completed a lot of projects.

What we do not do:

I keep my prices low by doing what I do best. Therefore there are types of projects that I'm not the right person for.
