Strengthen your narrative

Whether it’s a college application essay, a writing assignment or a term paper, our editors strengthen your essay’s narrative by improving your sentence structure, word choice and consistency in style.

Your editor will comment on redundant phrases, vague language, and confusing constructions to help you tell a clear story.

Eliminate language mistakes

A thorough proofread ensures your essay is free of awkward language errors. Your editor will improve your spelling, grammar and punctuation, checking for mistakes such as misused words, misplaced commas, incorrect word order, and inconsistent tenses.

Improve your structure

With the add-on Structure Check service, your essay editor provides feedback on the organization of sections, the order of information, repetition and redundancy, and transitions between paragraphs.

Not sure if you’ve included all the necessary components in your writing assignment or admission essay? Our Structure Check Report is tailored to each type of document  the editor will tell you which sections are missing or out of place.

Scribbr really helps you improve your thesis!

I am really happy with my editor's work (Frank was my editor). He really helped me fix a lot issues my thesis had and I hope he will be assigned to me again when submitting a final version of the thesis for a final review.

Scribbr is worth it!

I used Scribbr more than once to check the plagiarism level of my essays. It really helps you feel confident about your dissertations. Recently, I also used it to revise my final thesis and thanks to the advice of the editor to which I was entrusted I was able to improve my writing by making it more fluid and correct.

Happy Customer 6 August 2019

EXCEPTIONAL

Normally I spent weeks of long hours researching for essays but my marks never reflect the amount of work I put in. I realised that poor writing skills prevented me from getting a good flow and saying what i wanted to say. This time I decided go give Scribbr a try. Amanda edited my document with painstaking detail. Her own natural command of English shone through and at the end after accepting the changes she suggested, the piece was clear and easy to read. And even better I learned so much from her suggestions I was able to apply them myself to some extra writing I had to do. I am also delighted that this is still all my own work and research so I don't feel compromised in any way, but yet it just so much clearer. I would say Amanda exceeded my expectations, but also Scribbr.. it was my first time to use and I was so impressed in the whole set up ... I will definitely be availing of Scribbr services again.
