Editing Service Details

The student should submit the paper a few days in advance of its due date. The writer should, in addition, provide original question posed, the length requirements, and any other information about the assignment that will be useful to the editor, including any specialized terminology with which the teacher or instructor expects the writer to be familiar and to use correctly. The draft should be highly specific in addressing the topic, and should not rely extensively on quoted material. Wherever possible, the student should avoid the passive voice. The paper should have an accurate and specific title.

The paper should have a thesis statement (what it is trying to prove or disapprove), a fluent introduction, three or more paragraphs in the body, and a conclusion that sums up the best points in the argument. Whenever possible, the student-writer should use complex sentences that involve subordination (who, when, that, and because are the common subordinating conjunctions) and avoid simple (subject-verb-object) sentences.

The editor will not write your paper for you. However, the editor will make whatever improvements he can in such matters as formatting, grammar, syntax, diction, and spelling. If, for example, the editor sees a lack of subject-verb agreement, the editor will correct it. The student-writer should remember that all such revisions and corrections are merely suggestions: the student-writer must decide whether a particular revision is appropriate and whether it reflects his or her intended meaning.

The editor will be prepared to discuss all revisions, changes, and corrections with the student-writer. If the essay contained vague, unclear, or simply incorrect statements or usage, the editor may ask the student-writer questions that will lead to an appropriate revision.

The editor will not

  • Look up facts that the student is supposed to have learned in the course.

  • Copy another person’s work without proper acknowledgement.
  • Charge the student for work not done or not attempted.
  • Make corrections about content issues that he or she does not understand.
  • Discount services, or simply check a single feature such as capitalization.
