Which level of student proofreading?
At the proofreading level, your document will be checked for errors in spelling, punctuation and English grammar. This service is recommended for authors who feel confident about their English language usage, but would like a second pair of eyes to review their document without making any fundamental changes to either their syntax or writing style.*
At the editing level, your document will not only be proofread for inaccuracies in spelling, punctuation and grammar, but will also be developed from a style and readability perspective. Therefore, repeated terms will be substituted with appropriate synonyms, short sentences will be combined using linking structures, sentences will be rephrased where necessary, and the overall written standard of the document enhanced to the level of a native English reader’s expectations.*
