Professional, friendly, fast service. I used Samantha's service to check my thesis before submission, and was so impressed and pleased that I returned several times through the course of my masters degree. Her careful eye and vast vocabulary was instrumental in making small but significant changes that helped me gain confidence in my own work. Thank you so much!
