Bonjour à tous, Je fais des études de Commerce International et depuis le début de l'année Samantha m'aide à parfaire les documents que j'ai à rendre en anglais. Que ce soit sur un sujet spécifique lié à mes études ou alors sur des thèmes généraux touchant à la littérature ou à l'histoire elle a toujours été d'une grande aide. Je dois aussi ajouter que je suis quelqu'un qui s'y prend à la dernière minute pour tout et pourtant elle a toujours réussi à m'aider même si je la prévenais tardivement. Donc voilà un petit panorama général de ses compétences qui sont en définitive très bonnes et très variées.

Aurélie Vachon, University of Lyon

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.
