Information for Students

I would welcome the opportunity to proofread your thesis or dissertation. I have a Masters Degree in Music and trained through the Society for Editors and Proofreaders. Please do read the information given below and whilst it may seem an onerous task it is necessary in order for you to know what is expected.

Written confirmation that you agree with the terms should be provided before your booking is confirmed.

Please also ensure a sample of your work is sent prior to booking. This ensures I can tailor exactly the right package to meet your needs.

How can I help?

I can:

  • proofread for correct spelling and syntax.

  • check grammar and punctuation.

  • flag up any problems in the comments if they cannot easily be fixed.

  • proofread references and bibliographies.

Is there anything I can't do?

I am unable to:

  • write new content, remove content or reorder content.

  • check for factual errors.

  • check equations, calculation or data.

  • check bibliographies or references which show major inconsistencies in style.


I would advise checking with your institution as to whether they have a proofreading policy in place. Please forward a copy with the sample of your dissertation.


Please refer to my terms and conditions before booking.
