Did you know that up to 20% of your marks depend on spelling, grammar, and punctuation?

You’ve poured blood, sweat and tears into your dissertation. After so much hard work, why submit it before it’s perfect? You deserve to hand in a polished, beautiful piece that reflects all the effort you’ve put into your degree. 

Does your dissertation ever seem like too much?

Many students are so exhausted from their research that re-reading their dissertation to check for errors seems overwhelming. And after staring at your thesis for so long, it’s hard to see the mistakes right in front of you.

If English is not your native language, catching these mistakes becomes that much harder! But there’s no reason to hand in imperfect work – a proofreader will fix these errors and you can rest easy, knowing that your dissertation is in the best shape it can be.

This is where I step in.

I’m experienced in editing all types of dissertations. I’ve seen it all. You don’t need to pour more hours into checking for mistakes – I’ll do it for you.

But my services aren’t limited to just checking for errors. If you want a full polish, I can also edit for academic tone and style, suggest rewording when necessary, and ensure that your dissertation is formatted to the standards of your university.

A basic list of the dissertation and thesis services I offer:

  • Correcting grammar, spelling and punctuation
  • Ensuring correct word usage
  • Improving tone, clarity and readability
  • Formatting document to specifications
  • Bibliography formatting and checking

Fast and flexible

Having worked in both journalism and academia, I understand tight deadlines. I aim to have your thesis back in your hands when you need it. I can also accommodate urgent or rush delivery for a small fee.

Because many of the dissertations I receive are works in progress, I can also work around your writing schedule. I can either proofread or edit the entire dissertation at once, or I can edit one or more chapters at a time and send them back to you. The first approach is beneficial if you’re further along in your research and your dissertation is largely complete. The second approach has the advantage of allowing you to incorporate my suggestions into subsequent chapters before they’re written. This can improve organization and readability of the entire dissertation.

Why hire August Editorial?

Reasonable rates and superior service

So many proofreading and editing companies charge exorbitant fees to students just so they can scan their document for minor errors. I won’t just check for little mistakes like missing commas or an extra full stop. I’ll ensure your sentences are clear, your thoughts are organized, and your word choice is sound. 

And unlike most companies, my fees are reasonable and you’ll know exactly what you’re going to pay before you hire me – there are never any hidden costs. 

You know exactly whom you’re hiring

With most proofreading and editing companies, you upload your document directly to their website. You put full faith in their security – once you upload that document you have no idea who’s reading or correcting it, much less whether they’re qualified! With August Editorial, you know exactly whom you’re hiring, and I’ll be in communication with you every step of the way.

But hurry – because my services are so intensive, my time fills up quickly. If your dissertation needs a helping hand, contact me today.
