Grammar Eyes is a copy-editing and proofreading service, managed by Phil Syphe, MA in English (Distinction), BA in Creative Writing & English (2.1).
Although I will consider undertaking any subject matter, including student essays, I specialise in:
· Commercial non-fiction
· English literature
I do not copy-edit or proofread works relating to law, medicine, or mathematics.
As an experienced and qualified creative writer, I will consider certain copywriting, ghost writing, and other writing-related projects. If you need help with a writing project, please email me about it. If I feel I can help, I’ll give you a quote for the project. Note that the charges will be higher than my prices for copy-editing.
Important note: All my work – corrections, suggestions, etc. – is undertaken on-screen with Microsoft Word’s Track Changes feature. I do not make corrections with British Standards Institution (BSI) marks or use any type of codes.
My CV is available on request.
Details of my past editing & proofreading experience may be viewed on my website. Charges are also displayed on my website.
Scans of my qualifications can be viewed on my Facebook page.
Thanks for copy-editing my statement for work. Phil helped me solve my problem at work. Much appreciated.
I am happy and satisfied with your work.
Without your contribution my book would not be published in english.

Good copy editing and proof reading. Best of all, done fast and on time.
I definitely recommend Phil as a proof-reader. Fast, reliable, professional; excellent job on my paper.
Fantastic job on my cv, phil. Many thanks 5 star
I had Phil look over some of my University work, including dissertation. He was always helpful, even when my work was in a hurry. He corrected grammar and spelling errors, as well as leaving comments and suggestions where my language was not clear. A very solid service.
I would definitely recommend Phil Syphe as a proof-reader. He had proofread a draft of my dissertation and I’ve received it back within 24 hours! He made an effort to add his personal suggestions, which was very helpful. He was also extremely professional and I was very pleased with the way he corrected my mistakes (he used green for text structure corrections and red for errors). If I ever need a proof-reader again I know I’ll get in touch with Grammar Eyes! 5 stars service! Thank you Phil!
Phil helped me edit a novella that I had written. He was extremely helpful and professional. He even went the extra mile and showed me some useful English Language websites. Phil is very dedicated to his craft and I would thoroughly recommend him.
I have used the services of Grammar Eyes and can fully endorse their services. Phil is a consummate professional, providing a superb level of service.
While at University and thereafter, I have enlisted these services on several occasions. I was provided with a rapid response correcting errors that I had overlooked. Sometimes, where syntax was awkward, I was provided with alternatives to enable flow and clarity.
All corrections were done in a thoroughly clear manner. These never affected the integrity of the text but without exception improved it significantly.
As a Teacher of English, I fervently believe that the re-drafting and editing process is one of the most arduous. Often a fresh perspective is the most valuable aspect of any kind of writing.
I would not hesitate in recommending these services, as they were recommended to me. I scarcely write reviews, but for such an excellent service I think that I should return the favour extended to me.
During my time at the University of Hull Phil aided me in proof reading my essays and creative pieces.
He was thorough, logical and an attentive proofreader that maintained a creative eye whilst keeping my essays and creative pieces well sentenced and structured.
Phil used an editing format that was easy to follow and one that also made every point clear and understandable. By doing this it was recognisable why each point was made and why.
Phil helped me to understand simple grammatical errors that I was continually making, so by using his services I was developing my skills whilst constantly finding Phil could find another way to better my work.
Phil Syphe: Grammar Eyes are certainly ones you want to cast over your work. x
