I would recommend Kristin without hesitation to anyone in need of support for their academic work.

My successfully defended dissertation, on the contribution made to the philosophical theorization of affect by a modern Japanese philosopher, is theoretically dense, written in English, but based on materials from French, German, and Japanese philosophy. Kristin handled the language and content challenges of this thesis exceptionally well and successfully copyedited it in a timely and well-communicated manner. Further, as I am reliant on adaptive software due to a visual impairment, I appreciated that Kristin successfully accommodated the specific format in which I required editing feedback without condescension.

"Working with Kristin was incredibly mana-affirming. She has a real talent for accuracy and enhancing intended meanings. I found her comments validating, strengths-based and neurodiversity-affirming. Her open-mindedness and broad political knowledge are real assets. I particularly appreciated her efforts to confirm that her contributions were meaningful and aligned with our copyediting plan. Out of all my university education experience, I found my work with Kristin most useful, in part because of her kindness."

"Kristin provided proofreading and editing support for my thesis. I am very thankful for her patience and assistance during  a very nervous time as I worked to meet a tight deadline. She is definitely an outstanding communicator, and she made a great effort to support me in my first research project. Her suggestions were very helpful for my final submission and my future research aspirations. I recommend her to everyone who wishes to have a supportive, kind and detailed eye over their work! Fa'afetai tele lava. "


PhD Thesis
Doctor of Geography

"Kristin worked closely with me during the final stage of my thesis. I found her work truly remarkable. She accommodated my schedule and provided extremely high quality service. She was excellent in paying attention to details and providing structural advice. I also found her passionate and inspiring in the way she engaged with my work. Most importantly, she strictly followed guidelines and made sure that all work edited preserved my original meanings. I would not hesitate to recommend her to all writers, especially those with English as a second language."

"Kristin recently gave one of my project reports 'The WORKS'. Her attitude was professional and helpful, and she completed the work on time. She helped me to finalize my manuscript and provided useful feedback on my arguments and on the structure of the paper. I did not expect such a humble and constructive approach from a professional editor. I would happily recommend her for any kind of English editing work."

"I recently acquired Kristin's services for my Kaupapa Māori Master's thesis, and I’m so glad I did! To start, despite not being Māori herself, Kristin has an impressive knowledge of and openness to te ao Māori. Furthermore, she took the time to consider my individual writing needs. Also, Kristin provided AMAZING feedback. I had contacted several other proofreaders, but chose Kristin based on her āhua, energy, and enthusiasm for my thesis. Proofreading services can be costly, but Kristin’s services are well worth it.”

Master of Architecture

"I was in a difficult situation: another proofreader had decided to stop working on my thesis. Luckily, I found Kristin through the University of Auckland’s list of approved proofreaders. Kristin made time for me and worked calmly and closely with me to proofread key parts of my thesis in a short time. She communicated with me effectively and was open to my questions and comments. I was more than happy with Kristin's work and would recommend her based on her attention to detail, cost, time, flexibility and quality.”

"I was at first wary about whether Kristin would be able to help in my specific field. However, she understood the requirements for my project and helped to make the writing clear and precise for the reader while singling out grammatical errors that I had missed. Kristin's efficiency and quality of work was worth every cent I paid. I now feel proud of my writing and confident that I will achieve a high grade for my last year of university.”
