I have edited over 300 Argosy dissertations and CRPs!
I am a top academic with the evaluative aptitude, critical knowledge, analytical proficiency, and Argosy-APA citation style expertise to get you through the process. I am a specialist in critical thinking, and superior research design and development. I'm here to help you assess each section of your dissertation or CRP resulting in a well-crafted document ready for proposal or final PhD defense.

*Your CRP or dissertation editing, proofreading, and formatting will be approved by both your committee and Argosy.

If not, the full amount will be refunded, no questions asked. In 19 years of doctoral editing, no one has ever needed a refund! I'm here to manage the editing process and to help secure committee approval for you.

I make sure to accommodate your needs by working with APA citation style format and handling all deviations required by Argosy. I also format the front matter (e.g., title page, signature page, table of contents) and back matter (i.e., references and appendices) to meet the requirements of Argosy and your department.


It is highly recommended that students make sure their editor has a doctorate. Do you really want someone who has never written a doctoral study to be working on yours?

For a no-obligation cost quote and more information about ordering CRP or dissertation editing, proofreading, and formatting, please feel free to interact with me using email. I look forward to hearing from you.

Argosy CRP and Dissertation Services FAQ

I proofread, edit, and format dissertations and CRPs from all Argosy departments and campuses. I have over 19 years of editing experience and have worked on over 300 dissertations and CRPs for Argosy students.

No, the editing function has been a long-time feature and the files sent to you are for a PC or Mac.

I much prefer Microsoft Word because of its Track Changes feature. However, if you check with me first, I support digital texts in a range of formats (e.g., Microsoft Word, Works, AppleWorks, Pages, Rich Text, and Open Office).

I can usually respond to an email within two to three hours during the day. I complete most dissertations and CRPs within a few business days after payment. I will accept it only if I can have it finished and back to you before your deadline. (Be sure to mention your deadline.)

Grammar, editing, proofreading, and Argosy-APA formatting are a total of 1.6 cents per word. You can see the exact cost by using the cost calculator on this page.

MS Word has a feature that you can use to obtain a word count. Alternatively, send it to me. I will calculate the amount and send you an email with a link to your invoice and payment options. If you want to calculate it yourself, multiply the number of words in your project times 0.016 for proofreading, editing, and formatting. For instance: 20,000 x 0.016 = $320 [USD].

I currently take bankcards, Square, PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Visa Electron, Visa Debit, Maestro, and Switch/Solo. The method of payment is a secure system with industry standard 128-bit encryption. This is the premier form of encryption available for Internet transactions and is the same level of security used in cash machines (ATMs) and most retail stores. Please note: An account is not required to process your credit card and I never see your personal data.

Proofreading and editing rates are based on word count. Unlike some other CRP and dissertation editors, I do not have confusing editing rates per page or vague quotes. I provide an exact dollar amount for my service beforehand.

I can usually respond within two to three hours. I complete most projects within a few business days. I will accept your work only if I can have the finished project back to you before your deadline.

I reword individual sentences. I rearrange sentences. I offer suggestions to improve the organization of paragraphs and sections within your dissertation or CRP. Having someone rewrite a dissertation or CRP is not allowed by any university, nor should it be.

I consider the issues surrounding intellectual copyright and confidentiality to be crucial. Only I have access to your project. If you require a separate non-disclosure agreement, contact me. Unless you request otherwise, all dissertations and related files are deleted after sixty days. I do not sell, trade, transfer, rent or share ANY information with ANY other party. All documents I review remain the intellectual property of you, the original author. In keeping with my strict confidentiality, I never release names or titles without prior consent. For further information, view my privacy policy.

I make use of the most powerful and updated security measures including the industry standard in encryption (128-bit secure socket layer). This is the highest level of security commercially available and is the same standard of security used in cash machines (ATMs) and by many retail stores. To protect your credit card information, I have partnered with PayPal and SquareUp to offer you the most trusted financial transaction systems on the Internet. The entire payment process is conducted through one of their secure websites. No banking information or credit card data is ever collected or stored by me.

You always maintain ownership and copyright. I make no claim on your copyright, and I do not require credit or acknowledgement beyond the fees for the services rendered. If you tell other students about my service, it would be greatly appreciated.

Comments from Argosy students


I was provided with an outstanding dissertation editing service and all within a timely manner. My dissertation was about 160 pages and I received a full detailed review back within a couple of days. My dissertation chair stated that the review I'd received has been the best she ever seen and although she could not endorse any editor, I can and will.
-Alfreda

I needed to have my dissertation professionally edited NLT April 20 so that I would be able to get all necessary tasks completed before April 26 to be able to graduate June 17. I picked three different editors and waited to hear back from someone who could meet my deadline. All three editors responded; but I felt that he would be the best editor for me. I have to say that I am so glad that I chose him. Not only did Dr. Dan meet my deadline. He had my edited dissertation back to me by April 18. The service that is provided is excellent. The corrections/ suggestions/ recommendations were on point. Not only that...Dr. Dan is professional, kind and he wants to present the best product for his clients. I recommend this company to anyone who is seeking editing services and it being done right! You will not be disappointed.
-Reva

I was very overwhelmed with the process of choosing an editor for my dissertation but I picked him for the services he offered. I was rewarded with not only excellent and efficient editing but kind and encouraging customer service!
-Heather

I used him for my doctoral dissertation. The editor I worked with was always very responsive and answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly. I had several additions to make to my work and he formatted and inserted them without issue. He even identified an area I had mistakenly left out, which ensured my work was complete and met my school's graduate work requirements. I highly recommend him for any editing need you may have.
