£18.99 per 1,000 words
Writing an essay in a foreign language is incredibly challenging. When the foreign language is English, a language known to often not follow clear grammar rules, that challenge can be daunting. EFL students often say that they have a really good understanding of the content of their work, but they keep getting marked down for poor grammar, expression or linking of ideas.
Our Editing Director has over ten years of experience working with EFL students and has developed a specialist service to meet the unique demands of people writing in a foreign language. Our EFL Essay Editing service ensures that your hard work and understanding of your topic is communicated clearly and effectively. Most importantly, this service will help to ensure that your essay is not returned with marks deducted and phrases like “this is unclear”, “I do not see the link”, “this does not make sense” or “you need to proofread this”.
Assignments & Essays
EFL students make common errors when writing in English, as they are based on grammar rules that SHOULD make sense. The English language, however, often does not follow logical rules. We have considerable experience in identifying these errors, but most importantly, in understanding what you are trying to communicate and helping you achieve that. Our EFL Essay Editing service focuses on more than just proofreading. It focuses on clarity, sentence structure, linking ideas and language use. Our editors may point out areas where an idea is not fully developed, where paragraphs could be reordered or where you are jumping from one argument to another without explaining why. Some examples of common EFL grammar errors are indicated in the tick list.
- 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

What to Expect
Proof Master aims to create an easy user experience. After we receive your file, it will be allocated to a suitably qualified editor. All editors hold higher-education degrees, with many holding PhD, Doctorate and Professorship qualifications across diverse backgrounds. Our editors sign Non-Disclosure Agreements prior to commencing work with us, meaning you can rest assured that your work will remain secure and confidential.
For proofreading and editing services, our editors will use the tracked changes function in Microsoft Word. This enables you to see and approve every small change they have made. Our editors may also use the comments function in Microsoft Word to bring your attention to areas they feel need further work. For businesses choosing our Document Rework service, the tracked changes function will not be used, and rewritten sections will be indicated in a different colour.
Once your editor has completed their work, your document will proceed through a final Quality Control check and you will be notified once your document is ready. You will receive two versions of your document – one showing the tracked changes and a final, ‘clean’, formatted version with any comments clearly visible for your attention. You can download your documents from the email or from the “My Order” section of the website. We aim to return all documents within the allocated deadline, hopefully giving you plenty of time to make any last-minute additions before your own final deadline.
We offer different turnaround times based on document size. The Turnaround Calculator below will help you select the time that best suits your deadline. Double check your return time at check out and remember to leave enough time to make any final adjustments suggested by your editor.

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.

Fast 12 hour turn around
I spoke with the director James yesterday as I was worried that my deadline was really tight. He was able to get my work back in 12 hours. Cost a bit more but so worth it for getting my work sorted on time! The standard of work from this company is very high i’ll definately be using them again.
