In their course they are not being assessed on their English language skills, but unfortunately it can impact academic achievement, bringing marks down.
Billington Media will happily copy edit and proof read ESL essays and papers, not changing the content, but correcting spelling errors and rearranging words in sentences for clarity.

Copy editing aims to achieve accuracy, clarity and consistency in a document. It does not involve significant rewriting, providing a single authorial voice, or tailoring text to a specific audience—these belong to a substantive edit.
Proof Reading/Line Editing
Proofreading involves checking that the document is ready to be published. It includes making sure that all elements of the document are included and in the proper order, all amendments have been inserted, the house or other set style has been followed, and all spelling or punctuation errors have been deleted.
