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.

Frank did an amazing job

Frank did an amazing job, which greatly exceeded my expectations! He caught over five-times the number of errors that I thought may have existed. I accepted nearly all of his proposed changes, and the few that I did not, I seriously considered.He had many ways to better word things, which greatly improved the clarity of my writing. He corrected many subject-verb agreement flaws, which I am weak at, and he separated compound sentences with commas, which I rarely forget. Frank has an incredible eye for detail; for example, he even caught missing spaces within a couple formulas and tables.Frank was familiar with the subject matter—economics—down to the technical level. For example, he knew that economists conventionally write price elasticities of demand as positive numbers, although they are technically negative numbers. As I did not mention this in my text, he knew it would confuse my readers, and he recommended I explain this technicality in more detail. I was very impressed! Frank also gave advice on how to present graphs/equations more clearly, and he caught a few labeling errors between these and the body of the text, which is well beyond what traditional proofreaders do.These are only a few examples of how Frank has improved my writing. I give Frank five out of five stars—he is truly a master in his field. Without question, I will use Scribbr’s services again, and I will recommend them to my friends, colleagues, and students. Thank you!

I had the impression that the editor is…

I had the impression that the editor is not quite familiar with the field of study of my article. Besides that, in my last Scribbr review, almost every sentence was reconstructed in a more direct way, differently from this review. Or my English has really improved from that time to today (since I learned with the corrections from the last review), or the review was this time made in less detail. As I do not know, I will give 5 stars to avoid being unfair. However, I will think twice in ordering Scribbr again.

Perfect service

Scribbr is a fantastic service for students that need help on editing their works. Excellent customer service, very responsive and reliable. I have worked with two editors so far (Katie and Lora), and both are amazing in their works. Really appreciate all their help. I look forward to sending in my next essay for review.

This is my first time using Scribbr

This is my first time using Scribbr, but it won't be my last My editor was very thorough and I could the compassion that she had just by reading her comments. Now I don't feel unsure about turning in my final copy to the anthologist; thanks to Robyn.

I highly recommend this service!

The editor was patient and thorough in the proofreading and restructuring of my PhD dissertation. He provided detailed feedback so I understood why certain suggested changes were made, and was particularly helpful with reorganizing and trimming my abstract so it fit general formatting and content standards. I now feel more confident about how my dissertation will be evaluated through my institution's external review process.
