Professional Dissertation and Thesis Editing. When you send your document to, I deal with it personally. Don't trust your essay to some large editing mill! I take pride in polishing documents to bring out the best ideas and facilitate communication. I have over 45 years experience in professional writing and editing, with more than 10 years specifically in editing academic writing. I can ensure your thesis or dissertation is polished to the highest standards of writing.


All documents are returned with Track Changes showing every edit, so you can learn from my edits and improve your writing. On request, I will also return a copy with all changes accepted, ready to be handed in.

I edit dissertations in all arts and social sciences subjects, including education, psychology, sociology, nursing, etc. This service is suitable for all writers, including people who use English as a second language, who want their writing improved as much as possible. Thesis editing is more than proofreading; it includes editing and proofreading for grammar and sense, transitions, and reference style. I revise sentences to make them flow with natural academic English. I tighten up the writing to remove redundancies and ensure correct academic referencing.

Editing includes:

Proofreading for typographical errors

I fix typographical errors that can happen to anyone, including missing letters or punctuation. A human proofreader can spot errors that an automated grammar checker might miss.

Fix wording

wrong word
