Professional Thesis and Dissertation Proofreading

Showcase your academic excellence

If you’re working on completing a master’s or doctorate degree, your thesis or dissertation is one of the most important documents you’ll ever write. It’s essential that you put your best foot forward so you can impress your advisor and launch the next step of your academic career. That means trusting one of our professional thesis and dissertation proofreaders to focus on the time-consuming details for you.

They will proofread your proposal, thesis, or dissertation for spelling, grammar, punctuation, and capitalization; edit it for sentence structure, clarity, and consistency; leave helpful comments and suggestions; and ensure your project adheres perfectly to APA, MLA, Chicago Manual of Style, CSE, IEEE, Blue Book, or another specialized writing and citation style.

Our thesis and dissertation proofreaders have decades of experience helping graduate students write effectively across all academic fields. Most have master’s and doctorate degrees, many from the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop, the most prestigious writing program in the world. Unlike your academic advisor or thesis committee, who are often juggling dozens of other advisees and obligations, your editor will be fully committed to improving and polishing your writing.

What you’ll receive from our service:

  • A document that has been proofread and edited line by line for spelling, grammar, punctuation, and capitalization
  • Substantial editing including improved sentence structure, sentence clarity, word choice, and consistency of the appropriate academic writing style (e.g., APA, MLA, Chicago Manual of Style, CSE, IEEE, Blue Book)
  • Adherence to custom style guides, formatting guides, or templates
  • Helpful, personalized commentary and suggestions to help you improve your writing and strengthen and streamline your arguments
  • Tracked revisions and comments so that you can see and review all of the changes we make to your work
  • For Microsoft Word submissions, we will also provide you with an additional version of your document with all of our changes accepted and implemented into the document for you, for your convenience
  • Live customer service seven days a week to answer your questions
  • The ability to meet rush turnaround times

Meet some of our editors



Julia has a PhD in English literature from Tulane University and started writing her first novel (lamentably unfinished) at the age of ten. After a twenty-year stint in academia, she became a full-time freelance editor several years ago in anticipation of the demand for professional editing services expanding greatly with the new publishing opportunities offered by her favorite thing in the world, the Internet. She has experience editing novels, dissertations, research papers, government documents, legal briefs, scientific articles, blogs, reviews, sermons, application essays, and pretty much everything in between. When not editing, reading, or writing, she can be found knitting or attending the current cultural festival in New Orleans.



Thomas received a PhD in English from the University of Iowa, where he is Special Assistant to the President for Communications and Research and teaches interdisciplinary courses. He has taught writing, literature, and interdisciplinary subjects at Cardinal Stritch College (Milwaukee), Michigan State University, and Moorhead State University (Minnesota). Tom has published essays in regional and national publications. Books include The Grace of Grass and Water: Writing in Honor of Paul Gruchow (edited collection, Ice Cube Press, 2007) and Under a Midland Sky (essays, Ice Cube Press, 2008). He has edited and proofread for Ice Cube Press and the Minnesota Historical Society Press, and he has served as manuscript reader for numerous academic journals and publishers. Tom is married and has two high-school-aged children who are active in band and other musical activities. The family also includes three rescued and retired racing greyhounds.

George Fitting


George holds a BA in English from Dickinson College with a minor in creative writing and is a JD candidate at The University of Iowa College of Law. He is an articles editor for a legal academic journal, the Iowa Law Review, and a content coordinator for a local community magazine, the Corridor Corners Neighborhood View. He has additional experience editing academic works from his past research-assistant positions for professors at both Dickinson and Iowa Law, as well as creative works from his past undergraduate workshops. George is interested in the relationship between form and meaning, and received an Engage the World Fellowship to apprentice with a blacksmith, forge an iron candelabra, and develop new poetic forms inspired by the smithing processes he learned, which he used to write a handmade book of poems, Ironworks. Other interests include cooking, hiking, and deep-house music.
