When you learn how to write, you become a better writer.
Every student has the power to change how they write, and in turn, change a marker's response to their writing.
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.
In fact, Australian Universities have strict guidelines that editors and proofreaders must comply with. A proofreader's responsibility when proofreading a student's essay 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.
Kyla-Jayne works with a student's essay or thesis firstly to ensure the work is grammatically correct, concise and easy to read. However, when a student's writing contains repetitious construction errors, she does provide a few simple writing techniques or tools to show the student how to become a better writer.
Then, if the student chooses to use a more proactive, focused and knowledgable approach when writing, they could literally teach themselves how to write better. The more the student practices writing using the provided tools, the more they'll notice their essays are easier to write - the content becomes clearer, more concise, and sometimes, more meaningful. Consequently, this desire to write well or even, simply, better leads to the increase of a student's grades.
So, if you are having trouble writing, or you keep coming up against the same writing blocks time and again, you may be eligible to receive a FREE writing assessment. (See below)

Kyla-Jayne offers a free 30 minute writing assessment to students who are particularly concerned about the feedback they keep receiving about their writing style.
If this is you, all you need to do is send KJ 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 short report.
The 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 provide you with information, and/or links to further information for more in-depth study. You may find after correcting a habitual writing error that your essays become easier to write.
The following issues may be addressed:
Incomplete thoughts or ideas
Inconsistent use of point of view
Poor spelling or capitalisation, or
Poor comprehension of the requirements or essay question
