At ProofreadingPal, we use a two-proofreader model so that every document is proofread and edited by two of our professional proofreaders. We proofread for spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, and verb tense. We edit for sentence structure, clarity, and style. We also make comments, suggestions, and requests for clarification on every page. Our editors typically earn between $500 to $3,000 per month.

1. Are currently employed by or enrolled as a graduate or postgraduate student in an accredited United States university and have a minimum GPA of 3.5.
