English Essay Editing

English Essays are normally written in MLA (Modern Languages Association) style, but we can edit them according to any requirements. If you are unsure about MLA style requirements, click here for a basic primer on MLA style. Here are some tips on how to format an English essay. One of the ways that MLA style is different from APA style is that instead of using (author, year) as an in-text reference, it uses (author page). Notice that there is no comma between the author's name and the page. The list of references at the end is titled "Works Cited" rather than "References." We find that many of our clients appreciate having their reference style checked as it can affect your grade. Our essay editing service includes checking reference style.

Format of English Essays

As with most essays, an English essay should be formatted using double space, 12 point font. Do not put two spaces between sentences. Do not put an extra line between paragraphs; indent the first line of each paragraph. Use the tab key to indent, or set the paragraph format to indent the first line to 1/2 inch. Do not create a title page, instead in the upper left corner of the first page put your name, your instructor's name, the name of the course and the date (also double spaced). Double space again and put the title of the essay. The title should use upper and lower case (capitalize the most important words). Follow standard format for titles of other works: use italics for longer works such as books; use quotation marks for shorter works, such as poems. Create a header with your last name followed by a page number. If you don't know how to create a header or set a paragraph format, see my blog post "5 Essential MS Word Skills Every Student Should Know." If you select our Advanced Essay Editing Service, we will ensure that your essay is formatted correctly for MLA style.

I am very happy with the work that you provided for me. You took out my grammatical errors and enhanced the flow of my paper. I was worried that the paper would be completely different and I would have to be concerned about plagiarism but that did not happen. Nothing was change, it was 100% my original work. Thank you so much.

English essay editing at HGPublishing will ensure that paragraphs have proper transitions. This means the logic of paragraphs link with the logic of the following paragraphs. Logical transitions use conjunctive adverbs such as moreover, however, nevertheless, etc. Each paragraph should discuss one or two main ideas backed up by citations from the works being discussed. Citations can take the form of either quotations or paraphrases. It is best use both in a variety of forms. While we can't add content to your English essay, we can give you feedback on paragraph content so you can make adjustments to improve your grades.

You edited my paper last semester and I got an A- for that; I was surprised that I could get an A and I wanted to say thank you!

How essay editing service works

24 hour return is standard; my goal is same day service for documents submitted before 12 pm Pacific Time. Most documents are returned the same day; however, obviously the longer the document, and the later in the day it arrives, then the harder it is to complete it as a same day service. If you need a guaranteed return in less than 24 hours, let me know in the comments section of the request form. Obviously long jobs, such as a thesis will take a few days. I can only give you fair value for your money when my mind is sharp and able to focus on the job.
