Incredibly fast and professional work! Very friendly communication. Just great. We recommend Katie highly.

Katie did excellent work in terms of both quality and speed. She’s also detail oriented. Whenever there was something unclear or something she didn’t understand, she asked questions and tried to understand it to make her work better.

All I can say is WOW! … I was already confident with my short story before I hired her, but after she worked her magic I feel like I can’t lose! … I highly recommend her as an editor/proofreader. You won’t be disappointed. I know I wasn’t.

Katie’s work is very high-quality. She is reliable, thorough, punctual, efficient, and professional. I highly recommend her.

She is very detail-oriented and delivered her work very fast. She gave me several useful tips on how I can further my text. Moreover, she responded promptly to my messages and it was very easy to cooperate with her. I would highly recommend Katie to anybody who needs help with proofreading of an academic text.

Katie is a true professional, will definitely work with her again.

Katie helped us with editing and proofreading of a blog article created by a non-native English speaker. She delivered everything in a few hours in great quality! Will be happy to work with Katie again.

Katie was very helpful and completed the task living fully up to our expectations. She is very cooperative and we had a good discussion on the scope of the task beforehand. She delivered everything ahead of time in great quality!

Perfect and fast turnaround. Will definitely work with Katie again.
