“I’ve engaged Stephen as a proofreader on a multitude of projects over the years.

The media I have handled relate to all stages of education and learning, from primary school right through to further education, vocational training, and management career development.
Extent of proofreading service for students
I am always happy to help students with their dissertations, essays, proposals, and theses, especially if English is not their first language. The extent of any proofreading I carry out will often be regulated by your university’s proofreading guidance and rules.
Please ensure you have your supervisor’s permission to use a professional proofreader – some universities do not allow this or have very strict rules. If you are in doubt, it would be helpful if you provided me with a link to your university’s rules or guidance for proofreading so that I know what I am allowed to do. An example can be viewed at:
However, if your educational institution has no such restrictions or lesser ones, please advise as the help I can offer will be more extensive.
Students: Please see dedicated subpage Students’ proofreading checklist for further details of the service offered to you, timing, and payment arrangements.
