Eric was so helpful, professional and understanding. He was so determined to help me get my personal statement done on time. I started with a very unorganized lengthy personal statement. He aided me with the advice I was seeking to display the most effective personal statement I could. I would recommend Eric to any friend of family member that needed assistance with writing, or editing.Jan 20, 2017Verified
Eric was very helpful. He gave me excellent suggestions to improve my writing. I really appreciate his support during the entire writing process. I got an A on the paper and a great feedback from my professor. Thank you for offering such talented and professional tutors like Eric.Dec 21, 2016Verified
Eric has helped my daughter with Fitzgerald’s translation of The Odyssey. Her reading comprehension and analysis have improved greatly. Most importantly, she now views reading the tale as a piece of art rather than a reading chore. It’s inspiring!Nov 21, 2016Verified
I first met Eric through a mutual friend and I immediately recognized he was someone who could edit my first published book. Through his insights and understanding of my creative intentions he really helped me to focus and make a coherent narrative that my publisher loved. He really has a knack for getting to the central message which was really important given the combination of images and text. Since our first collaboration he has edited and made great suggestions for my resume and cover letters plus has tutored my kids with great results. He's someone who understands the "big picture". I'm lucky I ran into him.Aug 6, 2015
Eric is a great editor. He helped me in the final stages of completing my Masters of Science Information Management thesis. The challenge was that I was working with several other graduate students, and demonstrating our findings and bringing the thesis together into one coherent manuscript was proving difficult. Even though We were pressed for time, Eric came through and made time to proofread the entire work carefully line by line to ensure that our ideas were expressed clearly and strongly. He was able to step back and see the entire project and what we needed to clean it up and present our data in the best possible light. I would recommend Eric wholeheartedly for any editing job!Dec 23, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Since every project is different, I do not adhere to a standard pricing system; rather, I begin with a free consultation, where we can determine together what the project entails and if I can be of service.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My initial consultation is always free. I work with each new client to determine what his or her objectives are and if I am the right person for the job. Your goals are my top priority, and I am open to using my skill-set and experience in any way that will best benefit you and help you attain your objectives.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Masters and a Ph.D. in English from the University of Virginia and years of experience teaching interdisciplinary humanities, as well as critical and creative writing. I have a teaching certificate and an IVF Fingerprint Clearance Card. I have taught, tutored, edited and consulted on a variety of projects with all different age groups.
