Proofreading is a basic check for grammar, punctuation, spelling, and verb-tense consistency.
Editing includes everything in proofreading plus sentence and paragraph structure, flow, phrase complexity, and readability. Editing focuses on the five Cs of writing: clear, correct, concise, complete, and consistent.
Professional proofreading and editing will improve your work’s English grammar, punctuation, usage, and structure, and give it a competitive edge. A final review makes all the difference, for when your writing is clear, concise, and polished, it can raise your grades or improve your chances of obtaining access to schools, programs, and funding.
As an Experienced Editor, I will assist you with the following:
- Editing original writing on school essays, college applications and personal statements, including blogs, websites, and speeches.
- Proofreading, editing, and formatting, i.e., MLA, APA, Chicago, Turabian, and others, Doctoral Dissertations and Masters Theses and cross-checking their bibliographies.
- Preparing Manuscripts for submission to editors, agents, journals, and self-publishing companies.
Submit your document to me and I will help you with that last push to make your work great!
