Thanks very much for the proof reading. You did a really impressive job and obviously have a real flair for it.

“Rachel proofread my PhD thesis, which was based on a clinical / translational asthma study. She was extremely thorough and had a very good understanding of scientific as well as clinical text. Rachel is extremely organised and always sticks to the timelines. She is very well learned and her command of English (spoken and written) is extraordinary. This, combined with her breadth of clinical/scientific knowledge, is what makes her stand out from the rest in the proofreading world.

I can't recommend her enough!” SN

The final copy was more concise, free from errors which I had overlooked countless times and far more pleasing to read. She had a complete comprehension of the subject content, which ranged from ecological conservation to human and plant biology, and when some technical explanations were required, offered suggestions that were far more precise than my own.” LB (BSc essay)

Dr McLaren is an exceptional proofreader. She has an amazing eye for detail, as well as a fine grasp of the complex rules of English grammar. She offers helpful suggestions for ways to makes sentences clearer, has a ready supply of apposite vocabulary and her encyclopaedic general knowledge is a terrific bonus. In my last manuscript, she frequently saved my bacon by picking me up on things I thought I knew but didn't -- from how to fly a helicopter, to the number of Great Pyramids in Giza. I would sincerely recommend Dr McLaren.
