Business Friend’s professional essay proofreaders will ensure your paper is ready for submission after all your hard work.

Our academic proofreaders are experienced in checking essays to ensure they can be read with ease, with consistent and correct use of verb tenses and abbreviations.  We do not only proofread for grammar, punctuation and spelling, we also ensure your text is clear and uses the appropriate academic tone.

Student writing essay

Our proofreading service aims to remove some of the stress students can feel when writing essays.  By restructuring sentences and amending any confusing phrases, our proofreaders will ensure your essay represents your findings in a clear way that is expected by academics in British universities.  This final check by an experienced academic proofreader means you will feel more confident that your essay is the best it can be!

Our native English proofreaders will also provide feedback when returning your essay.  Your document will be sent to you in Word, with the amendments clearly marked up, and your proofreader will explain why the changes have been made and provide feedback that will be useful for your future academic writing.
