- Testimonial -

"Sylvie's editing service was most helpful to me while writing the final drafts of my masters project.  She provided a readability review with comments, as well as assisted with editing and technical formatting of my document.  I would use Sylvie's services again and know that she will provide valuable editing services in any situation.  Highly recommended."
