Language check of my PhD thesis

I received comment by the deadline that was agreed, and the comments really improved the manuscript. Even though the probably was not very familiar in the field of my research, she was able to give good comments that did not affect scientific content of my thesis. Also the price of the service was very reasonable compared to other services we have been using. Strong recommendation.

thanks and comments

Sean's proofreading is quick and helpful. I do appreciate for that. However, if there is a follow-up Q&A for the edited work, things will be more excellent. I sent my questions to the working staff of information desk last time, but there is no response.

Highly Recommend

I highly recommend the Scribbr service for editing needs. James, my editor, did a terrific job of editing my dissertation draft. He was efficient, pointed out 'the most common mistakes' and included comments in the document that were helpful to revise. The customer service team was very helpful with questions before utilizing the service and after signing up. Thank you, helping me to present my best work. ~ C. Hines
