Pay rate thesis/essay grammar check

Recommended Posts

I have been considering doing this for a while but don't know where to begin. I have a degree from Caltech, and would be very interested in helping to proofread scientific papers, particularly physics and mathematics, before they get published. I have some time right now and need some extra money.

 

Does anyone have a recommendation on what I should do and where I should go to try and get involved in this?

You could try the IET in the UK. I believe they are always asking for reviewers of papers

1000bt a page to check grammar and spelling.

 

The last thesis I checked was 297 pages, do you honestly think that someone will pay nearly 300k for a check?

 

One of the Thai professors at my uni charges about 15k per thesis.

I think you really need to get a look at the raw copy and get a feel for it first, rather than say 'so much per page' or 'so much for word'. It can range from basically coherent and just in need of a grammatical touch-up to mind-numbing incoherence.

 

I have been doing this for extra income for many years now and have built up a small base of repeat customers for theses, academic papers and the like.

 

In fact, the extra income made though contacts is one of the few good things to come out of my university teaching stints, which never seem to pay well.

 

Another factor to consider when giving a cost estimate is how long you have to complete it.

And also if you are going to be checking content as well as English.

If it's not a very serious project, I would try hiring people from Upwork or Freelancer, I love these platforms as they allow to check each worker's rate, reviews on their work from other clients. If this is a serious one, I would find a reputable writing company (here's a good review from  Omni by the way). Professional writers can not only correct your grammar mistakes, but also give different useful recommendations concerning the whole essay, it's structure and writing style. I have a blog, and I confide every article to a company like this for professional proofreading, even light mistake can lead to losing your authority and affect your business in a baddest manner.
