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.

Fantastic editor and constructive feedback

Michelle did a wonderful job editing my work! I thought she was just going to proofread and edit my grammatical mistakes but she also pointed out some contradicting points in my work, which really helped me to improve. She finished the whole proofreading process in 2 days (I selected the 7 days option) which allowed me to speed up my own editing and submission process.I feel really confident about my work now. Thank you, Michelle!

5 stars

5 stars: Excellent – no reservations, I would recommend this company to anyone.Shane's work is amazing! I needed a quick dissertation edit and I was not expecting much, but Shane was truly awesome. Her edits were excellent. Could there be a better editor anywhere, I don't think so.

Once again, Aimee did an excellent job editing my work! This is the third time Aimee has edited work for me and each time she has knocked it out of the park. I definitely recommend her, and Scribbr, to those in need of high quality, timely editing services!
