Essay Editing Service

Achieve your true academic potential with guidance on flow, style and academic tone

£18.99 per 1,000 words

At Proof Master, we have developed our Essay Editing service to provide valuable insight for students about where they might be going wrong in their writing. This is because, unlike the less-than-clear feedback that will often accompany an essay with an underwhelming mark, our team of professional editors will make the necessary changes for you so that you are able to not only see what needs to be corrected, but how it should be corrected.

For many students, addressing the fundamental issues within their writing structure can take much longer than it should, often because supervisors are more focussed on the argument than the writing itself. Whether you have issues writing with an academic vocabulary or are simply failing to get across your points due to inaccurate phrasing or grammar, having your work edited can clear things up for you significantly.

Our Essay Editing service helps identify and strengthen your ideas so that readers are able to understand them fully. Whether you are a Masters student or a first year EFL student, our team of professional editors will be able to highlight your argument so that it is unobscured and can be marked properly.

Essay Editing Service Overview

Our Essay Editing service focuses on improving the clarity of your work. From ensuring that sentences and arguments link together properly so that your essay flows, to presenting your ideas in a concise manner and with the correct academic tone.

By offering a completely fresh perspective on your work, our team of experienced editors can quickly identify and address the areas that are likely to confuse the reader. By ensuring that there are no grammatical, syntactical or spelling mistakes whilst switching in the appropriate vocabulary, tone, or tense, all areas will be accounted for. It is easy to overlook mistakes when you are re-reading your own essay, especially if these are deeply-rooted issues that you do not realise you are making.

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 from Our Essay Editing Service

Proof Master, at every stage, seeks to make our Essay Editing service as easy as possible for clients. From receiving your file, we will quickly allocate a suitable editor for your work. All of our editors hold higher-education degrees in a wide range of subject areas, meaning that we can match clients with editors that will be able to understand and dissect the essay effectively. Editors also sign Non-Disclosure agreements when taking on any work, meaning that your work will remain private. Our Essay Editing service can also be paired with our Essay Proofreading and Essay Critique services for a fully comprehensive service that addresses the details, corrects them and offers broader in-depth guidance on how your writing can be improved going forwards.

For our editing and proofreading services, editors will make use of the Tracked Changes function of Microsoft Word. This is done so that clients are able to not only see where changes have been made but compare these changes to what was originally written. Businesses using our Document Rework service will, instead, have rewritten sections indicated by different colour text.

Once the Essay Editing service is completed by your editor, the document will be passed through a final Quality Control check to ensure that no errors have been made during editing. Once this has been done, you will be notified that your document is ready. This will be available in two forms that can be downloaded in your email or from the “My Order” section of your account. The first version will be one with Tracked Changes and the second will be a final, “clean”, formatted version with comments made clearly visible. All documents will aim to be returned within the allocated deadline so that you should have plenty of time to make any last-minute additions or alterations to your work ahead of the essay deadline.
