| TESTIMONIALS |
REZZA RINOVA, MA in Environment and Development:
I went to use Eris’ help at last minutes notice. They were really responsive and willing to do the proofreading for my dissertation on short notice. Moreover, they were able to work within a tight deadline with a clear and concise review of my work, giving hints on where I can improve, and also helped me structurise my writing’s logic so I can deliver my message better. I definitely recommend their service as a proofreader.

The feedback on my story from Eris Young was helpful. It had a positive tone which was encouraging and it was perceptive in drawing attention to areas that needed development. The story has improved as a result of the feedback.

I’m still pretty new in this arena, but I’m learning that when I have a nagging feeling that something’s not quite right, an insightful editor such as yourself cuts through the noise to get to the bones of it. So thank you, thank you!
