Our Approach
  • Step 1: Revise

    Our first step is to learn about your needs and goals, as well as the assignment requirements. This way, your tutor takes a look at your essay they can help you decide if there are any major thematic or structural changes that need to be made.

  • Step 2: Edit

    After major edits have been made, your tutor will narrow in to focus on strengthening your essay overall. This involves strengthening your arguments and language, making sure you have strong supporting evidence, and clarifying existing thoughts.

  • Step 3: Proofread

    Once all structural changes are finalized, a final pass will be done to look for grammatical, formatting, and spelling mistakes. This final proofread will work to polish your essay to ensure that it is ready to submit.

We’re Here To Help

Editing an essay, whether it is academic or for an admissions application, can be stressful. It can take hours to thoroughly edit and revise an essay, which often involves cutting out entire sentences that we’ve grown attached to during the writing process. That’s where we come in! Our essay editing service experts will go through your essay to provide notes, edits, and pointed questions to help you make the most out of your writing.

We’ll work with you every step of the writing process.

What is the difference between revising and editing an essay? The main difference is the scale of the changes you want to make. In revising, you are looking for large changes that need to be made for the essay to work such as adding or removing entire paragraphs. In editing, you are looking for smaller ways you can strengthen your essay such as quotes or sentences you can add. That’s why our essay editing tutors will walk you through a 3 step process of revising, editing, and proofreading–to make sure that your essay is strong on every possible level.

What we’ll need from you

In order to ensure the best essay editing services, it is always helpful if you can provide your tutor with as much information about the essay as possible.

  1. What is the prompt?
  2. Does your teacher/professor detail specific essay expectations in the course syllabi? If so, please include it in an email attachment.
  3. For personal statement revision, please let us know about the respective expectations of each school/university to which you are submitting the application.
