Services For Students

If you want your dissertation, thesis or essay proofread or copy-edited, you’ve come to the right place.

Luke Finley Editorial provides a professional but friendly and flexible service. My standard service is described below, but please get in touch via the contact page to talk about your own requirements and get a quote.

Anyone can skim over the odd spelling mistake, missing word or misplaced comma. And it’s very hard to proofread your own work. You know what should be there: that’s what you tend to see, instead of what’s actually there.

You’ve probably done a spell-check, but a computer can’t really understand what you’ve written, so it’ll never be completely reliable. You may have asked a friend to read your work. This is always a good idea, but there’s no guarantee they’ll know all of the rules and conventions to look out for, and problems may still be missed.

I will carry out a thorough check of your document, making sure that the grammar, spelling and punctuation are 100% accurate and that the style is appropriate and consistent. I can also make sure that you’ve followed your institution’s referencing style perfectly.

If you’re an international student writing in English as a second or other language, my support will help to give you confidence in your language usage.

By asking Luke Finley Editorial to take care of your proofreading for you, you’ll buy yourself the peace of mind of knowing that your text is word-perfect, with no typos or errors to distract the reader from your content and your argument.
