Student proofreading: who and what is covered
Proofreading for undergraduate, postgraduate, and mature students
I have extensive recent experience in student proofreading of dissertations, theses, and essays for native-British and international students (particularly proofreading for Chinese students studying in the UK), as well as their personal documents.
Media I can handle for you
- CVs / résumés
- personal statements and other documents.
They should be in Microsoft Word format.
Please check my proofreading subject areas for my specialisms although I am able to proofread in other subject areas.
Extent of student proofreading: what my proofreading will include
I am always happy to help students with their dissertations, essays, personal statements, proposals, and theses, especially if English is their second language (ESL), such as international students studying in the UK. I have recent and regular experience in proofreading essays and personal documents in English for Chinese students studying in the UK, and I welcome enquiries from all Asian students.
The extent of any proofreading I carry out will often be determined by your university’s proofreading guidance and rules. Usually my proofreading will include:
- spelling and hyphenation
- grammar and syntax.
All my amendments and suggestions will be recorded using Track Changes in Microsoft Word for your review.
Please see the Students’ proofreading checklist page for details.
What my proofreading will not include
I will not rewrite the text to change its meaning or restructure it, or to reduce the word count. The words and ideas will be your own as required by your university.
Please ensure you are aware of your university’s proofreading rules and that you have your supervisor’s permission to use a professional proofreader. Some universities do not allow this or have very strict rules.

Feedback from satisfied students
Here’s what some international students had to say about their essays on marketing:
“I really appreciate your work, and it has really helped. I will have 4 more works need proofreading next month, if it is possible, may I ask you for long term cooperation?”
“Thank you for reviewing my essay. I am really happy with it.”
Also for a recent thesis on psychotherapy and counselling:
“Brilliant, thanks so much for this Stephen. Hope to be contacting you again soon.”
