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.

Heaven sent

The edits were easy to accept when using Microsoft Word track changes. What I was most impressed with were the suggestions to help with clarity. It gave me very clear guidance on how to better achieve my objective. Very impressed and will continue to use.
