This page contains John Dorrington references so that anyone that needs writing, editing or proofreading services can see what John is capable of. John is a very private person and I have difficulty getting him to ask for these letters so, if he has done work for you in the past, I would be most grateful if you would drop him a line and hope that you would give him 5 stars.

Here are some John Dorrington references from clients

To whom it may concern

John Dorrington has a very fast turn-around time reviewing a 188 page dissertation in less than 4 days on short notice, despite having other commitments. I was able to see on the date stamps of the document that he worked till early in the mornings to get it done. He was also available via email, phone and in person over weekends to provide assistance.

Besides making changes in the text with the track changes function, he provides detailed comments on why the change is needed or makes suggestions on how to rephrase.

I have worked with John for a few years now and he is truly passionate about the English language. We have had numerous debates on the origin of words, phrases or even place names.

John Dorrington Reference

Dear John

Just a quick note as I run out the door to tell you how much I appreciate your quick turn-around of the edits and, of course, your invaluable input. There are truly no words…but thank you from the bottom of my heart.

It is just a few painful steps from actual printing and then not only will it be available online but at the museum.

Thank you thank you thank you (no commas on purpose : )

Lots of Love, Sherri

Re: John Dorrington reference

Dear John,

Just a short note to thank you for editing my new novel The Discovery. Your insights and recommendations greatly improved its pace and readability.

As a Canadian author I found working with you seemless and enjoyable.
I look forward to using your services again on my next project.

Dear John

I am very pleased with the work (language editing) you did for my Master’s Thesis. I had only a vague notion and knowledge regarding academic writing but with your magic touch and experience in your field of work, you turned the English of a native French speaker to proper English, by translating my work into a very useful and admirable book of knowledge.

I will certainly send and recommend people to you as you go out of your way to make them feel special. Thanks so much John (Mr English).

Stay blessed John.
