Academic proofreading rates

My rates start at £10 per 1,000 words. Each piece of work is assessed on an individual basis and the actual amount charged depends on the level of proofreading needed and any specific time limit requirements.

Here are guideline amounts for the cost of proofreading different documents, charged at the starting rate:

2,000 word essay: £20
5,000 word essay: £50
15,000 word dissertation: £150
75,000 word thesis: £750


My preferred method of payment is bank transfer. I also accept payment by PayPal.

For PhD theses, I’m happy to work on a chapter-by-chapter basis, with payment to be made after I return each chapter.
