Very reasonably priced for what you…

Very reasonably priced for what you get. I was applying to graduate school after six years away and had nobody to ask for advice or editing help on my personal statement who knew any better than I did. And I was on crunch time. For $30, I got solid advice to make my writing stronger and all my grammatical and punctuation errors fixed (there were plenty), and for another $20, I got it back the same day. I will definitely be using this service again in the future and recommending to my little sister when she applies for undergraduate next fall. Thank you!

Very Helpful!

The editors at Scribber edited and proofread my paper, making it much better. All the edits are done in a way that you can accept and decline the edit, so you see your original paper with the edits superimposed on it. There were lots of comments and explanations to show my why the editors changed something. At the end I also got some comments and and overview of the top mistakes in my paper. It's very useful for both improving that one paper but also for helping me become a better writer. I also love that the editors are very knowledgeable on the APA format and helped me format by paper according to APA guidelines!

Scribbr proofread my 85k thesis in 7days!

I contacted the Scribbr team with a pressing need, proofreading my 85k PhD thesis in 7 days. The Scribbr team replied promptly and accepted my job, even if that meant splitting the work between different editors, which did not happen eventually. The proofreading itself was open to my needs, very constructive and of high quality, and most importantly it was delivered on time! My experience speaks for itself. I am very satisfied with the job, and I would highly recommend it.
