As you write and rewrite and tweak your own work, it can start to seem like the more times you read your essay, the less you really see it. Unfortunately, that’s when the errors sneak in. You need an experienced, professional proofreader with a set of fresh eyes and full knowledge of the ins and outs of grammar. I will proofread your college application essay to:
Ensure accuracy of spelling, punctuation, and grammar
Confirm style consistency and clarity
Flag omissions and inconsistencies
With the above tasks in mind, I will also provide light editing when necessary for logic or sentence structure (making sure to preserve your personal voice and style).
Convenient Process: Google Docs or Word File
I’m happy to proofread using Google Docs or Word.
If you email me your edited college application essay file as a Word document, I will proofread it in Word using Track Changes so all my notes and corrections are visible to you. Then I will email it back to you in the same format.
The process works the same way if you prefer to work in Google Docs. Just invite me to edit the document, and I’ll work in “suggesting” mode so the changes are visible. I’ll insert comments if I have any questions or comments for you to address.
College application season is busy for everyone, and many of the deadlines hit at the same time. I understand the pressures of the application process, and I work quickly as well as accurately. I strive to proofread and return your college application essay within three days. A rush fee applies if you require a faster turnaround than that.
A Final Look
If time allows, I’ll be happy to give the essay a final look after you’ve made all the changes. In fact, I’d love to. Sometimes errors are introduced when changes are made.
I know that essay topics can be quite personal (in fact, some of the best ones are), and I will never discuss your essay with anyone.
