Without a theoretical framework, your dissertation can come across as unfocused and unmoored – as if you’re floundering for rationale.

I received a great service from Thesis Editor in proofreading and formatting for my master’s thesis. I personally like to thank Dr Judith Jackson-Pomeroy who was amazing in assisting me from the first call I made to thesis editor enquiring about the service they provide until the submission of my project. She took personal care in the service provided, it was professional and responded quickly to all my queries throughout, which gave me peace of mind and direction at such an intense moment of finalising my dissertation. The strict deadline with thesis editor got me working hard - around the clock, which was all worth it. I highly recommend thesis editor to anyone who is looking for proofreading and formatting service for their thesis - look no further!
