I LOVE Scribbr and Raisa Because I was using a different site a little like this one but I one time had to wait a week just for them to answer me back on one question. Raisa is right there ready to answer my question.

I was certain I had done a thorough editing job but decided since it was 30 pages to have a fresh set of eyes review it. I am so glad I did. Paul was amazing. He was thorough (over 600 edits plus the same in comments) and made excellent small edits to clean up the document. Worth every penny and then some.

Scribbr takes the stress out of writing

I used scribbr to get some feedback on graduate school admissions essays. Both times that I uploaded a document the feedback was timely and helpful. In addition, my editors notes were thoughtful and encouraging; she really helped me have confidence and ease of mind before submitting my documents. I truly feel like my writing has improved after implementing her feedback, and I plan on using her tips in future assignments. I highly recommend trusting scribbr with your writing.

Scribbr offers excellent customer service. I had first submitted an order to check my thesis citations, and I wasn't satisfied with the work done. Srcibbr immediately contacted me to resolve the issue. An editor who specializes in complaints was assigned the job and thoroughly checked the citations. I was 100% satisfied with Scribbr's service.
