‘Hilary proofread my thesis and I was extremely happy with the result. She kept me fully informed throughout, and the suggested changes were clearly explained, meaning I had full control over whether to accept them or not.
Despite it being a technical subject, Hilary was able to highlight grammatical and formatting errors without being fazed by uncommon scientific terms, meaning that the main content of the document remained unaltered. The changes she suggested made a noticeable difference to the flow and style, making my thesis more readable and undoubtedly contributing positively to my final mark.’

'Hilary Trick was my proof reader for several written assignments in the last study year. The kind of assignments varied in their nature. I needed her skills for statistical analysis, for papers in a specific medical field, and different written assignments such as policy brief, project proposals and situational analysis.
In every assignment I was very grateful that she could support my work with her skills through applying a more sophisticated and academic language but not changing the content, even if it was not her field of expertise (e.g. obstetrics). She always gave me valid and useful feedback and referred to points I could improve in. Further I want to mention that she delivered her work always in time and often before, even when I requested her service with a short notice.'

'Hilary did an outstanding job by proofreading my 80,000-word PhD thesis. Her services go far beyond the correction of grammar, spelling and sentence rephrasing.
As my first language is not English, it makes me a bit harder to come across with clear English-language writing. I was so lucky to have Hilary helped me correcting meanings and expressions in proper academic English.
I always received a prompt reply to my emails and text messages. And I also had sufficient face-to-face meetings to discuss some feedback from Hilary. She was helpful, reliable and friendly. And I felt that all my concerns and issues have been taken care of.
The proofreading itself was very fast, efficient and conscientious. I am always impressed by Hilary’s professional competence and sense of responsibility.
I will definitely be using Hilary’s service again for any future work of mine.'

'I was very lucky to have Hilary as my proofreader while applying to the University of Oxford. I am a non-native speaker, so it was crucial for me to find a reliable person who would help me through every aspect of the application process. Hilary not only proofread my application thesis and documents, but also helped me to get through the IELTS test successfully.
I will definitely recommend Hilary to fellow students as she always managed to deliver her work on time. I liked the fact that despite all corrections the text content remained unchanged and I could clearly see myself as the sole author. Whenever the intended content was not clear, Hilary double-checked with me before making any risky modifications in the text. Hilary is very transparent when it comes to her service, timing and pricing. I would recommend her proofreading services to anyone looking to deliver an accurate and error-free English text.'

'I requested Hilary's services when an editor asked me to undertake professional proofreading for an academic article I had written. Hilary offered a very timely service, and produced very thorough and detailed comments which will be easy for me to implement in my paper. She also made the effort to match up her comments with the specific style format of the journal, which was very useful.
Thanks for the great work on this, Hilary. I will be sure to contact you again should another editor ask for proofreading.'
