Before editing my 70+ page thesis, Kaitlyn had a Skype consultation with me. She listened carefully to the argument and structure of my paper, clarified any obscure points promptly, and took notes so that she could keep my points and purpose in mind when editing my paper. In addition to her excellent English writing ability, Kaitlyn is very capable in reading advanced Classical Chinese. My paper involved quite a lot of Chinese sources, and I can tell that she read through my paper thoroughly, including footnotes. She sent me a well-edited paper back within three days as promised. I feel very confidant in my work when Kaitlyn edits my papers, and she is very easy too work with. I did and will keep recommending her to other classmates and friends because she is so reliable and won’t disappoint you. I sincerely recommend her!
