Helpful

Each editor at the Scribbr is always helpful. However, I highly recommend the writers to carefully reread the edited paper because sometimes our own intent and after editing are different. Beside that, I have been learning many grammatical and/or academic wiring things from them a lot! So Thank you!!

I found it really easy to navigate

I found it really easy to navigate the website and upload the document. The reviewer, Lesley, was specific in her edits and she provided helpful comments about the readability and structure of problem areas. I consider myself to be a proficient writer and was really surprised but appreciative of how many edits that she caught in my work. I will definitely use them again.

Scribber was extremely helpful and easy to use. It's extremely easy to use due to no ads popping up constantly which is common with other citation sites. Also, some citation sites are not able to fine website URLs but Scribber found everyone I had.
