I used Julia’s services for my MSc dissertation. She was extremely professional in both her approach and manner. She was very clear about how she could help as a proofreader and therefore the type of support she could provide. Julia was able to work to tight deadlines and this did not affect the quality of the work I received, which was very detailed and comprehensive. She helped me improve the tone and language used within my dissertation. I highly recommend Julia to others who are looking for proofreading services.
