Freelance Editing

One of the most helpful experiences for me as a doctoral student was getting useful feedback on my dissertation thesis chapters and the project as a whole.  Now that I’ve earned my PhD, I feel passing forward this service is important.  My goal is to help you make sure your thesis is written clearly and that its argument is developed well and flows logically.
