Review of a work of a foreigner

As I am a foreigner, I needed a review of my work in order to reduce all the failures I did and to correct for unusual use of certain words. The reviewer corrected for all of the obvious failure and came up with some good ideas to how to express my ideas a little bit easier. I am satisfied with the work and the price was really ok.

Excellent job done!

Scribbr did an excellent job in editing my thesis. I opted for all services and all was done very well and within the deadlines agreed. Scribbr pro-active communicated with me on status. Also, the editor was very flexible in providing chapters already finished. I strongly recommend to use Scribbr in case the language you write your document in is not your native language.

I love Scribbr

I love Scribbr! Other citation generators have tons of ads, are slow-moving, and don't gather all the information from websites or journals properly. I've never gone wrong with Scribbr and I'm so glad I found them. It is a godsend!! At this point, I've not used any of their plagiarism checkers or proofreading options, but I have no doubt I will use them in the future. :)

Best Citation Generator Ever

Best citation generator ever. It's free like they say it is, no hassle. I do not like the tutorial every time, but it's short and tolerable. It's completely ad-free and overall convenient and easy to use. Strongly recommend.

Perfect!

It was really helpful to check my motivational letter, creating a more academic language and way of explain concepts; there were also incredible advice from the tutor to rewrite the sentences for a better comprehension! I will surely use it again :)

10/10 will use again

I was looking for proofreading services and after looking at a few of them, I went with Scribbr. The feedback I got was clear, constructive, and specific. The feedback can be applied to future papers if it is common with your own writing style. The rpice may make you hestitate but honestly, it is totally worth it and it pays for itself. A bonus was that I was able to narrow down an editor by choosing the field of study/subject my paper was on, this gave me more condifence with the service. I am extremely happy with them.
