Your ideas are great, but expressing those ideas can be tough. If you’re puzzled by punctuation, stressed about syntax or tense over tenses, the PGPR team can use their research and proof-reading expertise to help.

We will collaborate with you to increase the readability of your work; after all, this is your project and needs to be something you feel proud of and have ownership over. I’d love to help you with your project; get in touch to start things off. Or read our story to find out more.

Our promise

Whichever service you book, we'll match you with one of our team of experts within 12 hours of you sending us the work.

Proof-reading

After you send us a copy of your thesis, essay or paper in Word format, one of the expert team will proof-read it section by section, using track changes to mark suggested amendments.

We will then send you back two copies: one with all the track changes included, so you can ensure you agree with the suggestions, and one clean version.

Feedback

We offer a feedback service for clients who are using qualitative social science methods. Send us a copy of your work in Word format, and we will comment on the structure, methodology and analysis of your piece.

Skype sessions

You can also book an hour-long one-to-one Skype session with one of our qualitative experts. We will also spend an hour before the session reading your material. This service is especially useful for clients who are early on in their research journey, or who are feeling stuck during analysis.

These sessions are also useful for clients in the run up to their viva. While we don't offer mock vivas, we can discuss concerns and questions you have as your exam approaches.

Please note, Johanna's schedule does not allow her time to conduct Skype sessions, so you will be matched with a member of the team.

Interview schedule feedback

We are happy to offer feedback on interview schedules, which are so key to gathering rich data. One of our team of experts will look at your schedule and deliver their feedback via a half-hour Skype conversation.

Booking a slot

Do get in touch if you’re working on a paper, essay or thesis which needs our attention; we’ll be happy to help. Due to the unpredictable nature of postgrad work, we won’t book you in until your piece is ready to go. This saves you having to work to a deadline which may become challenging if things don’t go according to plan and saves us setting time aside for pieces which may not be ready yet. You’re welcome to get in touch to find out more about our services and tell us about your piece at any time, but we won’t book you in until those words are in place. We will pair you with one of our team of experts within 12 hours of you sending us your work. Good luck with your writing!

Many PGPR clients do not have English as their first language. We welcome such clients and are happy to help them. Some of our clients are really new to English and so struggle with writing more than others. We might need to look at these clients’ work twice; once to ensure that we are correctly understanding their meaning and a second time to polish the work. We would charge for both of these rounds of work. If you fall into this category, we will let you know as soon as we can so you can decide if you want to continue working with PGPR.

The PGPR team offers three levels of service for students:

  • Basic proof-reading at £14 per 1,000 words
  • Feedback on methodology, structure and analysis at £19.50 per 1,000 words
  • Proof-reading plus feedback at £24 per 1,000 words

If you specifically want Johanna to proof-read or give feedback on your thesis, her rates are as follows:

  • Basic proof-reading at £15 per 1,000 words
  • Feedback on methodology, structure and analysis at £21 per 1,000 words
  • Proof-reading plus feedback at £25 per 1,000 words

A one hour Skype session (including prep) is £65.

A half-hour interview schedule feedback session is £40.

We are happy to check the style of your in-text references as we read your work. However, we do charge more for proof-reading reference lists. This costs an additional £12 for a list of 1-30 references, and then £0.40 for each additional reference after that.

We are also happy to help you reduce your word count if needed. If you need a reduction of less than 10% of your total piece, we will happily do this for free for you. Any further reductions than this add another percentage to your bill for each percentage we take off. For example, if you need a reduction of 20% from your overall word count, this will mean a 20% increase to your final invoice.

Some PGPR clients are universities who require additional amounts of admin to set up payments. As a result, we charge £18 per 1,000 words for proof-reading if payment is coming from a university.
