Here are some comments, from previous clients and colleagues, mostly in the Economics and Business departments at La Trobe.
“I had my dissertation edited and proofread by Richard. Although the thesis was long, Richard was able to complete the job at a lower price than his original estimate. Richard improved the quality of manuscript with his brilliant comments. Also, Richard’s English grammar and punctuation are perfect, also his expression is clear. I honestly recommend Richard’s services as, from my experience, he did an excellent job for me, even though my dissertation subject was very difficult.” – Dr Ahmad Alharbi, PhD Graduate, La Trobe University, 2013.

“Richard edited and proofread my PhD “Understanding Tourist Motivations: Emirati Leisure Travel to Australia”. He was very good with meeting all deadlines, patient and professional. He also provides good suggestions and advice on grammar, choice of words and context-specific words. He offers options for his edited work which gives you the choice to accept the recommended changes or not. This is very useful as it is less time-consuming. In fact, a publisher has published my thesis as a book without any formatting or grammar corrections. I wish to thank him and wish him the best for the future.” Noela Michael, PhD, La Trobe University, currently teaching in United Arab Emirates.
“The dissertation of a PhD degree is a culmination of PhD student’s years of arduous work and it is important to submit an organized, eminently readable dissertation for examination. The editor/proof-reader plays a major role in this. When I was getting ready to submit my PhD dissertation for examination, I was in need of an editor/proof reader. I was looking for many factors such as ability to keep strict deadlines, patience, approachability, affordability and maintaining integrity of the original content from my editor. Richard was able to meet all this criteria. He was impeccably professional and made himself available at short notice and provided very helpful insights into thesis structure and layout. He improved the readability and layout of the text, clarifying points without changing the meaning, and gave advice on grammar and usage. Richard’s attention to detail was amazing. Additionally, Richard offered me suggestions for more context-specific words, which was very helpful. Richard’s vast editing experience and constructive feedback assisted greatly in fine-tuning my dissertation and added value to the quality of my dissertation. I highly recommend Richard for all proofreading/editing work.” -Dr Pandula Gamage, PhD, La Trobe, 2013 currently Lecturer at Victoria University. Thesis topic: Financing of SMEs in Sri Lanka.
“Richard Snow has been very helpful in proof reading my work. He has a high level of professionalism in abiding by deadlines to finish work and providing a very precise and detailed feedback. Not only would I like to recommend Richard to all research students but I would definitely continue to utilize his services for my future works.” –
