You've reached this page because you're seeking clarity, consistency, and grammatical precision in your writing. You've come to the right place. Since 2002, before all the others, we've provided high-quality dissertation editing, essay editing, dissertation formatting, and proofreading services to students writing essay, thesis, and dissertation drafts. We were the first to make dissertation and essay editing widely available and affordable and to prove that professors would endorse professional editing for student writers. In fact, our oldest online review comes from Amazon.com, back in 2004 when they hosted website data in partnership with their subsidiary, Alexa:
All of our services are designed to meet the needs and budgets of graduate and undergraduate students. We also offer resume and admissions essay editing services at highly competitive rates.

Our rates adhere to this tradition of offering the highest-quality editing and proofreading at the most accessible prices possible.

The Editing Process
You know that your essay, thesis, or dissertation offers content that your reader will gain value and insight from understanding, but you want to ensure that your work is readable, concise, and error-free. That's where we step in. When you order editing services from us, we'll change the grammar and style directly in your draft using Word's track changes function. Not sure how track changes works? No worries. We have samples posted here with Word's markup used in them for your review. Once we edit your essay or dissertation and return it by email, you can choose either to review each of the changes individually or accept them all at once and turn your completed work in with your original content and meaning intact, but now in flawless prose.
What You'll Need to Get Started
To place an order with us, you'll need a Word version of the essay, thesis, or dissertation draft that you'd like us to edit, the total word count of the document or documents (to enter into the order page), any instructions or guidelines that you'd like us to review (such as formatting guidelines or comments from a professor or advisor), and a credit card or Amazon, Apple Pay, or Google Pay account to make a payment, or you can choose to pay over time with Klarma financing. Once you've placed your order, we'll take care of the rest and return your draft by the deadline you've selected (i.e., 72, 48, or 24 hours, or one week for a thesis or dissertation). In case you're unsure how to find your exact word count in Microsoft Word (including any footnotes or endnotes that you'd like edited), we have instructions included on all of our order pages.
How to Reach Us
Since we work in documents following instructions that are textual in nature, the best way to contact us to have your document started is through our contact page. From there, we'd be happy to reach you by phone if you'd like, though we suggest ordering directly and adding any instructions that you'd like us to review into the comments box on our shopping cart. Ordering directly is especially recommended if you have an essay for editing with a deadline of three days or less. We'll contact you if we have any questions about how we should approach your work. We try to respond to inquiries as quickly as possible, but during busy times of the year it may take up to 24 hours for us to reply to your email.
We will ensure, as we have since 2002, that the final draft you receive from us is completely ready to publish or turn in and will work with you until it's ready or refund your payment.
