Essay proofreading service
We're a very different editorial team

Our style-specific essay editors come with a unique set of experience, training and language know-how. Each essay editor has experience as an EAP (English for Academic Purposes) tutor at top universities. They are native English language users, which enables them to easily identify overly complex sentences or awkward wording, and they have edited a huge amount of essays throughout their careers.

Why use an EAP editor to proofread your essay?

The training required to become an EAP tutor at a university is long and difficult. It requires a high level of linguistics knowledge, as well as many hours of tutoring experience. They have worked on hundreds of essays before they became editors. Now, they are able to use their vast training, education and experience to inform their editorial work.

What's included in the essay proofreading service

The essay proofreading service checks for spelling errors, grammar errors, syntax errors and misplaced words. It's always our aim to deliver your essay with all of these removed.
