The more you write, the more proficient you'll become, but the more you learn how to write, the better writer you will be.
Students often get caught up in the desire for better grades, which is commendable, but, it's not the only purpose for having your essays proofread or edited. In fact, Australian Universities have strict guidelines that editors and proofreaders must comply with. A proofreader's responsibility when proofreading students' writing is to identify grammatical errors and suggest changes to punctuation, sentence fragments, subject/verb agreement, spelling, passive vs active voice, along with any other errors of clarity.
If a student's writing contains obvious and repetitious construction errors, Kyla-Jayne will provide a few simple writing techniques or tools for you to practice. As you begin to use the writing tools, you'll notice your essays become easier to write while your content becomes clearer and more concise. It's a win-win.
You have the power to change how you write, and in turn, change the outcome of your marker's response to your writing. By using a proactive, focused and knowledgeable approach to your writing, you will enable yourself to write better. Consequently, this new concentration and desire to write well will increase your grades.
Rates for student packages are considerate of students' budgets. Kyla-Jayne always appreciates and respects the privacy of her clients and guarantees not to discuss the content of any essay, assignment, or thesis with anyone.
Kyla-Jayne offers students a free 30 minute writing assessment, particularly if you are concerned about the feedback you are receiving in regards to your writing style. All you need to do is send her a copy of your essay (include the essay question), or another piece of writing (if you're a creative writer) that best reflects how you write. She will then analyse your writing and provide you with a report.
The short report will highlight any obvious errors or writing habits that could easily be changed by simply relearning a related writing concept or technique. KJ will then provide you with information, and/or links to further information for more in-depth study. You may find after correcting any habitual writing errors your essays become easier to write.
KJ may address the following:
Incomplete thoughts or ideas
Inconsistent use of point of view
Poor spelling or capitalisation, or
Poor comprehension of the requirements or essay question
