Strengthen your style

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

Your editor will comment on redundant phrases, vague language, and confusing constructions to help you get your ideas across.

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 and story

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.

With the Clarity Check, your editor uses two checklists to make sure your essay tells a clear, logical story.

Timely Service

Personally, the editing & proofreading service I received for my research project was extremely good. I haven't received my grades as yet but I hope my professor thinks the same🙏🏾. I opted for the 24 hours service but I was so afraid that I wasn't going to receive a timely feedback. I was amazed and pleased when I got the feedback within a few hours!!!! Yes!!!! A few hours!!! Overall, timely service and excellent quality of service. I would definitely be using again in the near future!

Excellent service

I had two documents edited by two different editors and I am very satisfied with the service I have received. Both editors did a thorough work in checking not only mechanical issues, but also clarity.

If I could leave 6 Stars...I would!

If I could leave 6 Stars...I would! From the moment that I contacted Scribbr with questions, I knew that I was in safe hands and I felt comfortable and confident that they would do a good job and they did. Very clear comments were provided, consistent edits and helpful suggestions given. I know that this is an extra expense, however, I believe that it is worth it.

Scribbr found me a reviewer in time in a very busy season and the reviewer completed her work in time. The comments given by the reviewer were very helpful. It was a quite long writing and the price was still reasonable.

Mixed opinions

I thought my paper improved considerably after the review. Unfortunately, my supervisor did not think the same, and to him, there were still many parts that weren't clear at all. Sorry... ********** edited: Scribbr support team was very quick and helpful and immediately offered me compensation. I'd be happy to use their services again and give another try, this time opting for an additional clarity check.
