About Proof Master

Proof Master was set up to provide premium quality editing and proofreading at affordable rates. We offer our affordable services through our efficient company system that makes dealing with admin faster and less expensive. This leaves us with a bigger budget to find and pay for only the best editors. We invest our money where it matters most. Our business model focuses on lower overheads so that we can pay for qualified, professional proofreaders who are all carefully vetted.

Our professional proofreading and editing services help both native and non-native English-speaking students to produce academic documents that are free from error so that they can get the results that they want. The quality of your written work, in its spelling, grammar, punctuation, and syntax, are just as important as the message that you are trying to convey. Proof Master prevents students from losing marks on their work for poor academic writing with online services that are easy to use. We are so confident about the quality of our work that we offer a 300-word sample service to help you get started.


Proof Master services include:

  • Professional Proofreading – correction of spelling, grammar, and punctuation, as well as stylistic changes and formatting
  • Paraphrasing and Rephrasing – transforming assignments stylistically while retaining their original meaning
  • Essay Critique – advice, feedback and expert comments on how to achieve the grades you need
  • Transcription – accurate and reliable transcription of audio or video files
  • Enhanced Copy Editing – careful rewording to improve the quality and strength of the writing

When you use online proofreading and editing services from Proof Master, it guarantees that the presentation of your work won’t let you down. You can present your ideas with the highest quality writing so that you can achieve the grades you deserve, instead of being marked down for mistakes. You should have a chance at success with your academic writing, no matter how good your knowledge and capability with vocabulary, grammar, and other stylistic matters. Proof Master helps both native English speakers who need help with improving the flow of their writing and non-native speakers who require someone to check over their work.

Our Proofreaders

Our proofreaders are all high-quality editors from a diverse range of backgrounds. Maintaining extremely high standards is vital for Proof Master, which is why we have a series of challenging admission tasks to test applicants’ attention to detail. Each test is carefully examined by the Editing Director to ensure the same standards are met by every applicant. Only the best proofreaders pass the tests, but it doesn’t end there. We also put all of our proofreaders through an extensive training process to ensure they all have the same skills and are up to the same standards.

We only use native English speakers, and all of our proofreaders also hold a suitable qualification, such as a professional editing certification, a degree or sometimes both. We also make sure to offer support to our proofreaders to ensure they are happy in the role and that they get everything they need from us. By keeping our proofreaders happy, we can make sure they are doing their best work and helping to keep all of our customers happy.
