We're not just a collection of academics!

Congratulations, if you've arrived at this web page, then you've survived the long and lonely road to PhD completion. You have already done the research to stake your claim as an expert in your field. Now it's time to share your learning in its entirety with your superiors to get the final prize.

Our unique editors will bring the best out of your thesis

Our editors have been editing theses for years at Mr. Proofread, but that's not what makes them unique! Each thesis editor has experience as an EAP (English for Academic Purposes) tutor at respected universities. Like you, we have a specialist subject, but ours in academic English and a high level of linguistics knowledge to bring to the table.

Why use an EAP editor to proofread your thesis?

We take on a huge amount of training and teaching experience to become EAP tutors, which provides a toolkit full of tricks that are easily translated to become helpful with our editorial work. We've already worked on many student theses before becoming editors, and hundreds more after editing theses professionally.

The thesis proofreading service

We'll carefully go through your thesis to remove spelling, grammar and syntax errors, or misplaced words. You can add the editing addition to enable us to suggest the rewording of sentences to make your language clearer and offer style fixes (you can submit a style guide if you have one). All of the changes are recorded in Microsoft Word to allow you to choose what you want to keep and what you don't.
