I am an overseas PhD candidate in the UK and a colleague who had previously worked with Samantha in revising her dissertation recommended her. Samantha helped me to proofread five chapters and made very insightful comments and suggestions, which certainly improved my dissertation. I am also grateful that she was available at short notice. I strongly recommend her meticulous and professional work.

The proofreading was very thorough and comments were clear and helpful. I was impressed at the speed my work was read and returned to me. I feel that the service really helped improve the quality of my work and would definitely recommend it to others.
