What I Offer

Copyediting

Copyediting can transform your writing into a highly polished document that is clearly written and error free. Copyediting goes beyond fixing errors of spelling, grammar and punctuation to ensure that the meaning of each sentence is clear and that your writing flows well with appropriate transitions between sentences.

Thesis editing

Students, especially international students, can benefit enormously from the services of a professional editor when writing a master’s or PhD thesis. Clear writing ensures that examiners are able to focus on your ideas rather than be distracted by problems with your written expression.

Formatting

I can help make your project a success by checking that all required document elements are included and are in the correct order (e.g., title page, abstract, table of contents, list of figures, list of tables, references and acknowledgements). I can also help you format your document in Microsoft Word and help design the layout for text, tables, figures and references using the appropriate style guide.

What My Clients Say

I highly recommend Gillian. Quite simply, the work she did for my PhD thesis was amazing. This was reflected in the comments from my examiners. Examiner 1 said ‘evidence of very careful proofreading, checking of references and concern with consistency of style’. Examiner 2 awarded Sum Cum Laude. The preparation and her attention to detail ensured I got the best possible result. I struggled with many aspects of the formatting and proof-reading such as the contents pages, apostrophes, page numbering and many other minor details not to mention the time it would have taken me. It was the best money I have ever spent and ensured I finished my PhD prior to my deadline. Thank you, Gillian.

(Positive Psychology and Education PhD candidate)

I would not hesitate to recommend Gillian’s services to someone completing a PhD thesis in science. I honestly don’t think I would have met my submission deadline if it wasn’t for the formatting and copyediting that she provided in a quick and very professional manner. From our very first email communication, I felt very confident in her abilities and throughout the process she was an unexpected source of encouragement. Thank you so much Gillian!

Elisa H

(PhD student)

I used Dite Editing Services to get my finished PhD into a presentable, submittable form. Gillian formatted my thesis, putting it into a single document with title pages references and bibliography. She also checked all my referencing to ensure that the style was consistent and correct. That would have been a monumental task for me, but Gillian provided me with a single document ready to submit, and her work was quick and professional. The finished product looked wonderful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services for help in what can be a difficult process of getting a thesis ready to submit.
