The two examiners said it was very good as they didn’t have to worry about typo and grammatical errors like many other papers they read. Monique respected my vision of the project and gave stress free proofreading. She was easy to get along with and supported me all the way.  Many thanks you do outstanding work.

Monique proofread my PhD thesis. English is not my first language and she helped a great deal with making sure the English was correct. It looked a lot better after she caught all the little mistakes. She found sentences that did not make sense. On top of that, she was very helpful in explaining the corrections. Thanks for the terrific job.

Monique took a lot of the stress out of finishing my PhD thesis. She is accurate and helped me with my grammar as English is not my first language. She fixed so many mistakes that I did not even see. Also, Monique can see when sentences are confusing even though it was a very specialised topic. She understands how to help you make your work better and will not mess up your work. I have recommended Monique to many of my colleagues and friends.

David Hu – Ph.D. Student, University of Technology

Monique edited and proofread my academic articles before they were published in academic journals. She knows how to proofread for U.S. or U.K. English. She pointed out many flaws and helped make it more academic in terms of argument and logic. It is because of her that my papers were accepted and published.

Monique also helped edit my novel and her understanding of structure, dialogue, and plot is terrific. She has a great understanding of dramatic tension and how to keep the plot moving, and helped my characters seem real and interesting rather than cliched. My script advanced in leaps and bounds because of Monique. Simon Roptell,
