It will be a pleasure to help you with your thesis. Let me know how long your thesis is and what your deadline is and I can work out a quotation for you.
Let me explain the process: Editors generally have several levels of editing: the first two levels are:Proofreading: This covers checking/correcting grammar, punctuation, improving word choices and sentence structure.
I also try to help with free advice on logical progression of ideas and suggestions for improvement.
Cost: R19 per A4 page spaced at 1 and 1/2 lines
Checking References. Both cited references and List of References and the links between the two to ensure they match up.
Most of our students use the APA or Harvard system of referencing.
Cost: R170 per hour. (Usually takes +- 3 hours@ R170 per hour)
I assume you already have a Table of Contents and your Lists of Figures and Tables. Otherwise I can do this for you at an additional cost
A 50% deposit is required before commencement.
Once we start, we can liaise on the “nitty gritty” via e mail or whatsapp constantly in order to achieve what you want.
Please allow yourself time to make the necessary changes once I have completed editing. The sooner I start, the more time you will have to make these changes yourself!
I can supply you with the necessary certificate of editing done for the university authorities.
