Essay Critique Service Overview

It is common for tutors to take weeks to provide feedback on your work. Our Essay Critique service is designed to provide you with on-demand, quality advice on how to better your writing within the necessary deadline. This will mean reading your work from a fresh perspective and considering whether your argument is answering the research question, whether your writing style and tone are suitable for academic work, whether your work is easy to follow, and whether your ideas flow in a logical manner. Your assigned editor will use the comments function of Microsoft Office to ask questions about anything that is unclear in your argument, point out any weaknesses or areas that need to be developed, and identify repeated errors in your writing. This service can also be paired with our Essay Editing or Essay Proofreading service to form the Ultimate Edit.

What are the benefits?

Whether you are struggling with essays because of a distinct lack of guidance or have a supervisor that is not clear in their advice, our Essay Critique service can help. By offering clear and concise guidance on where your writing could be improved, our editors are able to help tackle the fundamental issues that are resulting in underwhelming grades. Often, it can be difficult to ask supervisors for advice, especially if they do not offer in-depth or are confusing and jargon-dense in their feedback.

Proof Master’s Essay Critique service had been created to offer a virtual tutor that has plenty of time to assist you. Our editors will thoroughly review your essay, providing feedback not only on what could be improved but on areas that have been done well. We find this more balanced approach to be more helpful for clients as they can then make alterations where required and learn what has worked. This service is perfect for those that are less confident in their overall approach to essays. For those that feel as though they are well-versed in their subject area and simply need a polish, our Essay Proofreading service may be better-suited.

What to Expect

Proof Master aims to make the user experience as simple and straightforward as possible. Once we have received your file, we will allocate an editor that is well-suited to your work. With all of our editors holding higher-education degrees from some of the world’s most prestigious universities, your essay will be in safe hands. Editors also sign Non-Disclosure agreements before commencing any work, ensuring that everything covered in your essay will remain private.

For our editing and proofreading services, editors will make use of the Tracked Changes function of Microsoft Word. This is so that you will be able to quickly identify any changes made so that you are able to see what has been changed any why. Businesses using our Document Rework service will, instead, have rewritten sections indicated by different colour text.

Upon completion of the Essay Critique service, your editor will pass your document through a final Quality Control check. You will then be notified once your document is ready. You will, via email and in your “My Order” section of the website, find two versions of your document: one showing the Tracked Changes, along with a final, “clean”, formatted version with any comments made clearly visible. We aim to return every document comfortably within the allocated deadline so that you should have plenty of time to make any last-minute alterations ahead of your essay deadline.
