Guarantee that it is your ideas that are being noticed by your marker, not your writing style

£18.99 per 1,000 words

At Proof Master, we have developed our ESL Essay Editing services for students that are wanting to communicate their research and arguments without the worry that can come from writing in English as a second language. From appropriate use of vocabulary, complex grammar rules, and spelling, it can be a rather daunting challenge. This is because, whilst your understanding of the content of your work may be incredibly sophisticated, your writing ability isn’t quite there yet in communicating your ideas.

It is for this reason that we have developed this specialist option as an alternative to our Essay Editing service. With our Editing Director having over ten years of experience working directly with EFL students, our service has been carefully created to ensure that every student that uses this service is able to communicate not just clearly, but effectively. Most importantly, this service will mean that your essays are not returned with marks deducted and comments that don’t provide insight into where improvements could be made.

ESL Essay Editing Services Overview

As any ESL student will know, the English language is fairly complicated with many seemingly contradictory grammar rules. At Proof Master, our editors are highly experienced in identifying repeated errors and, most importantly, in understanding what it is that you are trying to argue and how to achieve that. Our ESL Essay Editing services focuses on more than just proofreading. It puts an emphasis on the clarity, sentence structure, linking of ideas, and language use. This can range from rephrasing sentences and explaining where ideas are not fully developed, to suggestions of where paragraphs could be reordered for better flow. Just some of the common EFL grammar errors that we address are indicated in the tick list. To discuss the specifics of your ESL Essay Editing requirements, we recommend booking a consultation call with us on our contact page.

  • Unnecessary attempts to pluralise mass nouns e.g., “researches” instead of “research”
  • Confusion between adjectives and adverbs e.g., “I ran good” instead of “I ran well”.
  • Subject-verb agreement e.g., “he walk every morning” instead of “he walks every morning”.
  • Verb form errors e.g., “I will driven”, rather than “I will drive”.
  • Word form errors e.g., “I live in a democracy country” rather than “a democratic country”
  • Sentence structure errors e.g., sentence fragments with no independent clause

For all of our services apart from our Document Rework service, our editors will make their alterations using Microsoft Word’s Tracked Changes feature. This is so that you are able to quickly identify any changes made and compare them to the original document.

Your proofread document will be available in two versions: one with the Tracked Changes, and another “clean”, formatted version where any comments are made clear.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will my document look like?

We use the track changes function in Microsoft Word so that you can clearly see the suggested edits. You will then be able to accept or reject the changes. Your editor may use comments for additional questions or suggestions.

How can I request a FREE sample?

To request a free sample please get in touch using the form on the Contact page. One of the Proof Master team will be happy to help.

My deadline is wrong for Ultra Express.

When ordering out of hours (UK night time), the system will calculate your ultra express order to compensate for this. It will usually only be a few extra hours, however, this is because we want to ensure we find the best suited editor for your work.

Why have the express times for my document increased?

When you upload your file, our system reads the number of words. Due to how quickly our editors can work, there is a limit to the number of words we can complete in a set time. As a result, larger documents require a longer deadline.

Do you have an editor suitable for my topic?

We have a diverse range of editors who work with us at Proof Master. We aim to pair your topic with an editor from a suitable background; from Banking & Finance to Physics or Biology. Feel free to add a comment when uploading your order to state your background preference.

How can I change my payment option?

If you have already uploaded a file and chosen to pay by Bank Transfer, for example, then later change your mind, you can navigate to the "My Account" section and view Orders. Next to the order in question, there will be a "Pay" button. Click this and it will take you back to checkout, where you can select from our various payment options.
