WE DO NOT
- Write content for clients.
- Assess the validity of sources. We edit for consistency with the citation style, not the quality of the sources themselves.
- Check for plagiarism or accept accountability for plagiarism. We expect clients to provide documents that include their own work and properly cited sources to avoid plagiarism.
- Promise or guarantee the project will achieve the client’s intended goal. The project’s success is the complete responsibility of the author/client. We take all measures to ensure accurate and detailed editing and formatting.
- Take ownership of the client’s failure to plan and allow us enough time to complete your project. Clients are responsible for their issues with tight deadlines and the associated consequences of their failure to plan.
Plagiarism involves an author’s use of someone else’s work or ideas without properly citing and giving credit to the original author. As a result, the plagiarizer takes credit for the work of others.
We strongly recommend that you use a reputable plagiarism checker to ensure that you never plagiarize the work of others. It’s all about academic and writing integrity and honesty!
I don’t know what I would have done without Dr. Franz. She coached me and helped me get over my imposter syndrome. She just knew how to motivate me to write and stay focused. My weekly meetings with her played a big role in my completing my Master’s thesis. I will for sure work with her again when I start my doctoral studies in the Fall.
Dr. Franz went beyond to help me turn my dissertation into a masterpiece that I was proud to defend! Thanks to her, I successfully defended! Thanks Dr. Franz!
Look no further! Dr. Franz is the best. She is very thorough and detailed, and she teaches you how to be a better writer in addition to editing and proofreading! I was lost until I found her online.
My friend referred me to Dr. Franz because I was struggling. I have never been a good writer and was in academic jeopardy. Dr. Franz helped me with my final paper and helped me build my confidence. I appreciate you Doc.
All I can say is WOW. This lady is a breath of fresh air. She is thorough, quick, and cares about you. Hire her!
