Academic Editing • Writing Coaching

 

At e.g. EDITORS, our experienced editors have collaborated with students and academics throughout the United States on a variety of projects.

 

We can help students create a standout application for undergraduate or graduate study, from crafting a personal statement to developing compelling essay responses.

 

In addition, we edit or proofread dissertations, journal articles, and conference papers. We have working knowledge of the Chicago Manual, APA, and AMA styles. Furthermore, we coach ESL students and work with non-native speakers to improve language, grammar, and usage skills.

 

Our editors have worked with students from schools such as Northwestern University, Boston University, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Illinois. We have assisted students with medical and MBA applications as well as those studying literature, economics, or the social sciences.

 

Student discounts do apply. For your free consultation, please complete our contact form below and one of our editors will contact you within 24 hours. You can also call 312.834.3733 or 650.534.2561.
