Areas of Specialty


manuscript preparation

Every publisher has its own house style, usually a mashup based on APA, MLA, or CMS. Navigating these requirements is often time-consuming, sometimes frustrating, and always a bit of a mystery. We can prepare your manuscript per your publisher's specific requirements, so you can stay focused on delivering the best possible content.


college admission essays

Whether you're applying for undergraduate or graduate admission, your personal statement needs to be compelling while conveying your accomplishments, talents, and goals. We can demystify the process and help you produce an essay that confidently asserts why the university should choose you.


dissertations & Theses

For most people, a dissertation or thesis is the culmination of years of research, field study, and critical thought. This document signals to your committee that you are ready to join their ranks, so the writing has to be clear, concise, and accurate. In addition, your university's graduate school may require specific formatting for submission. With a qualified academic editor, you can rest assured you're submitting your best work in the format they prefer.
 


english for non-native speakers

English-language learners face specific challenges in regards to academic writing. English is one of the most difficult languages to acquire, with multiple and various exceptions to nearly every rule. Our consultants are trained to identify problem-areas and correct them, so you can feel confident your ideas are taking center stage.


apa formatting & citation

If you're in the social sciences or health sciences, chances are you've spent an inordinate amount of time trying to decode APA formatting and citation. We can relieve you of this burden by formatting your paper, including in-text citations and references (i.e. bibliography), and identifying sentence-level discrepancies to satisfy the requirements of both APA's Publication Manual (6th ed.) and your professor.


resumes, cvs, & cover letters

If you're applying for a job or internship, you need a clean and impressive cover letter and resume (or CV). We can help you create documents that capture your reader's attention by balancing content with presentation, and by making sure you're matching your skills and experience with requirements of the position.
