Writing Mechanics
An essential element of clear and effective writing

The first step in proofreading is to make sure that there are no technical problems in your document. We are perfectionists and we will make sure your document is free from mistakes that can cost you grades. Never lose marks for grammar or spelling again!

Seeing is believing—See a sample document from one of our proofreaders.


Spelling & Capitalization

Variant spellings lurk around every corner. Homophones and typos abound! But fear not: proper spelling, capitalization, and hyphenation are the good guys, and they will win! We will catch the errors your computer's spell-check cannot.

Grammar

Subjects and objects and verbs—oh my! Let precise grammar be your paper's home, sweet home. Our thorough editors will check for things like correct verb tense, misplaced modifiers, and unnecessary use of the passive voice.

Punctuation

If you're a punctuation mark, you need to be in the right place at the right time. From commas to semicolons, from apostrophes to quotation marks, punctuation is an exact art. We are punctuation perfectionists. Leave your document in our capable hands.


Proper use of vocabulary

Would a rose by any other name still smell as sweet? Your professor doesn't think so. Precise word choice and correct usage will make your paper shine! We will make sure your word choice is correct without changing your meaning.

Numbers & Lists

Numbers and lists aren't quite as easy as 1, two, 3.00—see? You need accuracy! You need style! A proofreader or editor will assist you with the nitty gritty of numbers and lists.


In-Text Citations

Whether the assignment calls for APA, MLA, Chicago, or Harvard style, your document must conform! Accurately formatted in-text citations will properly acknowledge your sources and will guard against plagiarism. We'll make sure your citations are properly formatted and we'll leave comments if we think you're missing citations.

Internal Consistency & Correctness

Are your facts internally consistent? Do your cross-references match up? Does the content of your paragraphs agree with the information in your tables and figures? We'll make sure your writing is consistent.
