I have used many proofreaders over my years as a student but Samantha's service has to be one of the best out there. The quality of her work is great and she was available at short notice. Her service is really friendly and personal which is what I like the most. I would definitely recommend it.

Samantha did a fantastic job working our website. She was fast, thorough and professional. She caught quite a few things that I would have missed otherwise and was able to provide a number of useful ideas in regards to content and writing style. Thanks again for everything! Highly rated!
