Proofreading that includes a session with the proofreader

We proofread all senior theses and MA theses*. We can assist you in the following ways:

Proofread your thesis and correct any grammatical or spelling errors.
  Work with you to ensure that your thesis is written in English that sounds natural.   Work with you to ensure that your thesis reads smoothly.   Please note that the proofreader is not responsible for the content or the structure of your thesis

*Please note that we will endeavor to proofread all MA theses, but undergraduate students have priority. Since there is a limit to the number of appointments that can be offered, during busy periods, we may be unable to accept MA theses.


Your document
We only proofread documents written in English.
We only proofread senior theses, MA theses, and Ph.D. dissertations to be submitted to International Christian University.
The maximum number of pages that we are able to check per session is 5 pages (maximum 1,500 words). Please use the ICU senior thesis format. You will need to book a separate appointment for every 5 pages that you would like to have proofread. 
We encourage you to submit the entire chapter that contains the 5 pages that you would like to have proofread as this will provide the proofreader with some context. You will be asked to specify which 5 pages you would like to have proofread when you book your appointment.
Please use Grammarly to check your document before you book your appointment. 
Please submit a Word document wherever possible. If that is difficult, we are also able to accept PDF files.
