I know how overwhelming writing a thesis or dissertation can be. Sometimes you’re just too familiar with your work to notice mistakes.

That’s where I can help – including with a student discount.

I proofread essays, theses and dissertations for PhD and Master’s students to make sure they are as good as they can possibly be before submission, including for students with English as a second language (ESL). I can also format and present your thesis according to your university’s requirements, including referencing and citations.

My own experience as a Master’s and PhD student enables me to understand the pressures that students are under. And my significant experience working with academics and academic presses means I have an excellent knowledge of the academic conventions to which you are expected to adhere when writing your thesis.

  • Subject specialism is not necessary for proofreading; I’ve proofread theses on topics ranging from small business lending practices in China to the aesthetics of care homes in England! However, you can see my subject specialisms here.
  • Find out more about my proofreading service here.
  • My own academic qualifications and awards are listed here.

Or just get in touch to discuss your requirements.


I do not offer my copy-editing, substantive editing or writing services to students. Your thesis must be your own work, and plagiarism is a very serious academic offence. Proofreading is usually allowed, but please check with your supervisor.
