I used English Proofreading recently for the checking of my Ph.D. thesis. I found the service very thorough and Samantha has an excellent eye for detail in particular. On the basis of my experience with my Doctorate I have sent book chapters and articles to Samantha to be proofread and intend on using her in the future as well.
