Reading a Book


Karen C - PhD Student 2019

Colette provided a first-class editing service on my PhD thesis. From the editors available online I chose Colette because of her academic background and her experience working in education. I knew that she would get the nuance of some of the language in my thesis. Colette is an extremely good communicator who took real care to follow my instructions and requests by providing a set of notes by way of an update as she progressed through the work. Colette responded to my emails promptly. She provided a quote for the work which she stuck to and delivered my perfectly edited and formatted thesis within a short pre-agreed timescale. I would definitely use Colette’s services again and have no hesitation in recommending her to others. She’s a true professional.

 As English is my second language it was crucial for me to find a proofreader for my PhD Thesis. After having spent four years on my thesis it was nerve-wracking, to say the least, to select a proofreader to trust with my work.

I have nothing but the highest praise for Colette’s work. She is extremely detail oriented, asked questions if there was something that did not make sense, provided a lengthy personalized style sheet with notes, and style recommendations. She went above and beyond in all regards. Her fees are reasonable, and she worked within the timeframe agreed upon. I can highly recommend Colette and would definitely use her services again in future projects.
