Hello, I am a 33 years old non-native speaker of English from Pakistan. I'm planning on applying for admission in an American university to pursue a Master Degree in Human Resource Management (HRM). I have written my Statement of Purpose (Personal Statement) and would like to get it checked by a native-American. If anyone could kindly oblige me to do a review and critique, please let me know so that I may send the draft of my SOP for editing.

For the above act of kindness, I shall remain highly thankful.
Friendly Forever!

You can email me a copy and I'll check it over for spelling/grammar stuff.

I'm a native English speaker and have a firm grasp on grammar and spelling.

I'm willing to do this because I admire people who know a second language and choose to take classes in that language.

I'm currently a Spanish student myself.

There are some online services that do this sort of thing for a fee. I've heard that EssayEdge is popular, and someone I know used GraduEdit and had a good experience with them. Good luck with your application!
