Juliet has recently helped me with by proofreading and formatting my recent academic study. Juliet was very thorough working to tight deadlines yet made the whole process really easy for me. Juliet was very accessible and always come back to me straight away. thank you for a fantastic job and under such a tight deadline.
I would highly recommend Juliet.
