An effective proofreading service is there to provide a fresh perspective on an essay that you will likely have read so many times that, even though it makes perfect sense to you, has a number of small errors. These errors will add up, especially where they affect the overall argument or flow of the piece of work. A professional proofreading service can ensure that your work and you by extension does not lose credibility due to small oversights.

Our Essay Proofreading service is intended as a final, detailed check prior to submission. This means that, to get the most out of this service, it is best to send your work over once it is in its ‘final draft’ stage. If you feel there may be glaring issues within your work, our essay editing service may be better suited to you. For our Essay Proofreading service our editors are there simply to serve as a second set of eyes scrutinizing your work for minor errors.

This service is, therefore, ideal for those that feel very confident in the overall essay structure and methodology of but feel as though the quality of their written work may be holding it back from the high marks it deserves. It may be, for example, that your academic vocabulary is somewhat lacking or that you are not confident in your use of punctuation. Our editors are there to identify and rectify these final issues in your work so that it is ready for submission.

What to Expect from Our Essay Proofreading Service

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 any Essay Proofreading work with us, meaning you can rest assured that your work will remain secure and confidential.

For Essay Proofreading and editing services, our editors will make use of the Tracked Changes feature in Microsoft Word. This enables you to track and approve any changes made. The comments function within Microsoft Word may also be used during this service to bring your attention to any areas they feel may need further work. For businesses choosing our Document Rework service, the Tracked Changes function will not be used. Rewritten sections will instead 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.
