I recently used Samantha's services to proofread and edit my thesis and several research papers. I have to say I couldn't have managed without her help. I contacted her at the last minute and she worked incredibly hard to get my work finished on time. She picked up on so many things that I wouldn't have noticed myself. I would definitely recommend her, particularly because her prices are extremely reasonable for the level of service she provides.
