“When I started my MSc in Advanced Technology, I was required to write a series of essays. In order to make sure I did not lose marks through syntactic or grammatical errors, and to take the advice that I regularly give to students, I decided to seek the services of a proof reader.
When I received my essays back from Liz I was surprised to find that her service was much more than a basic grammar and spell check (although those corrections were present). There were comments against almost every paragraph, noting reasons for changes and suggesting further amendments like shortening, lengthening or moving sections. It was clear that Liz had an understanding of the essay as a complete piece of work and had engaged with it in the same way an assessor would. I took on board many of her comments and restructured the essays. I’m happy to report that I received a Distinction for this work, the Masters equivalent to a 1st.
The best recommendation I can make is that I will be seeking her services for all my future essays.”
