£18.99 per 1,000 words

For some students, academic and essay writing can be tough. You need to know the right tone, tense, what language is appropriate and how to structure it all. Your final draft, despite all your efforts, might still sound a little clumsy. If writing isn’t your strong point, this can really impact your academic performance.

Our for students is designed to support writers who struggle with an academic tone of voice. It’s for students who are not naturally clear and concise and see “what do you mean here?” or “how does this link?” among other disheartening comments on their work.

The Essay Editing service helps to make your ideas clear to readers and bring out the strengths in your writing. Whether you are a Masters student or a first year EFL student, we will support you with every step of the essay editing process.

Service Overview

Our Essay Editing service focuses on improving the clarity of your work. This can involve ensuring sentences and arguments flow logically and that ideas are presented in a concise manner with the correct academic tone.

It also involves proofreading your work to ensure that there are no grammar mistakes. Our editors have a good understanding of how academic work should be presented, and will therefore adjust any low-level vocabulary, incorrect tone or tense, and will consider the reader’s perspective.

As you wrote the essay, it may make sense to you. But if a new reader looked at your work, they may find it hard to follow.

We have come up with a list of common errors that we regularly check for:

  • Very long sentences fragmented by lots of commas.
  • All work presented as one (very long) paragraph.
  • Unusual spelling or wrong word (e.g., where/wear, accept/except)
  • Difficulty organising/sequencing ideas.
  • Variations in formatting throughout the text
  • Sentence fragments – no independent clause
  • Jumping from one idea to another without logical connection
  • Failure to shape/conclude an argument or not relating back to the title

What to Expect

At Proof Master, we aim to make our Essay Editing service as easy to use as possible. Once you have sent us your essay, it will be given to a qualified editor. All our editors have higher-education qualifications, including Professorships and PhDs. It is standard practice for them to sign a non-disclosure agreement before working with us, meaning that your data will be kept safe.

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.

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.
