Proofreading

It is often very difficult to critique your own work. We can help!

Proofreading is an absolutely essential component of writing.

Nothing hinders credibility – and turns readers off – more than simple typos and grammatical errors throughout a document. Yet, it can be very difficult to proofread your own work when you are so close to it. Your mind automatically skims over the text, missing mistakes. And let’s face it, English is a very complex and sometimes highly illogical language. If English is not your first language (or even if it is!), proofreading can be a very daunting task. At its best, it can still be cumbersome, monotonous and time-consuming. 

For student theses in particular, the time supervisors spend proofreading could often be spent more advantageously on other tasks. Having a document thoroughly proofread prior to submission also means that there will be fewer corrections that come back, saving time (and money) for both students and supervisors.
