Katie recently completed some editing for me. I was very happy with her work. I wanted to ensure my voice would not be lost, and Katie took care to maintain my writing style, while making suggestions to improve my style. She was very professional and answered my queries in good time. I will definitely use her services again in the future!
I am very pleased with the quality of Katie’s work. I felt my essay was still reflecting my style but the flow was much better. As for the feedback, Katie’s comments ranged from offering suggestions about references to comments about the logical flow of the essay or suggestions to use alternative words. This meant that she was actually reading and making sense of the essay as opposed to just checking English, punctuations etc.
