Very helpful and understanding. I am already recommending her to other students on their dissertation so she may get more business soon. Talked on the phone, returns email very quickly, and works hard to make you look your best. This is on a dissertation so she is super at editing and APA
Carl was hired to teach Hebrew to my daughter who is in Kindergarten as well as to teach my husband and I Hebrew. Carl is a very dedicated professional that has a true gift at teaching. He makes the lessons fun and teaches in a way that keeps the learner engaged the entire lesson and always excited about learning more. This would not normally be an easy task while teaching a 5 year old, however Carl makes it look easy. Our daughter looks forward to Carls's weekly visits, as do we. Carl even went out of his way to find a special Hebrew educational book for my husband (who already speaks pretty decent Hebrew- but wanted to learn more). I would highly recommend Carl for any tutoring, writing, or editing services you may need.
Hired Maverick Consulting for the edit of my non-fiction book. Very personable and even met with me in person. Edits and comments were easy to understand and helped improve the flow of the book. Edits were given in a timely manner. Communication was continuous even after the editing work was completed. Feedback was given as way to improve the overall flow and quality of the book. Very reasonable rates for the amount of work on manuscript. Definitely recommend Maverick Consulting for your literary work!
I have worked with Lois for the past three month, and she is just AMAZING. I have learned so much from her about public speaking, interview techniques and accent reduction. I am now much more confident about my English and presentation stills. She did an absolutely fantastic job on editing my resume and personal statements. Unlike online editing services (which just correct grammar and punctuation mistakes and typos), she spent time to know my vision and what I really wanted to express. The end results were impressive pieces that were personal and really made me stand out. Lois is intelligent, delightful and inspirational, and I truly enjoy her teaching. I especially love her homemade iced tea in this hot summer. I strongly recommend Lois for her lessons and will definitely continue working with her!
Temi was quick and helped me with my needs. A+ work. Would recommend.
Melanie is excellent to work with. She gives more than 100% She helped me with a children's book and did a wonderful job. She answered my questions in a timely manner and returned my work to me ahead of schedule. My next project will be articles in the field of Human Resources which I plan to ask for her editing expertise. I highly recommend Melanie of Elegant Editing.
Joyee is one of the most hard working and supporting people I have ever met period, nonetheless a tutor. He rapidly increased my SAT scores, and he helped me through AP Calculus when it was borderline impossible for me. He also helped me in AP statistics in which I would set the curves on tests because of him. He would also tutor me after hours if I needed it late into the night even if he had other things to do, and even though for a time I was lazy and didn't do my assignments he still believed in me, and I eventually turned it around. He is a HUGE reason I got into college and I wouldn't have been able to do it without him. Also, it doesn't hurt that he knows everything. There really isn't an area of high school academics he doesn't know. He's the epitome of an expert. He also can find plenty of practice material for you and he really does tutor you to your style If you're having second thoughts about his work ethic, intellect, or teaching ability, don't. He is by far the best tutor I've ever had and I doubt that will change. Jay, NYU class of 2021
I had the best experience! I am currently working on my teaching credential and Guita Karubian helped with editing multiple essays. I have managed to maintain my 4.0 and look forward to working with her throughout my continued education.
I was lucky to find Skip and the Press Gang on this site. He is very thorough and knowledgable about publishing and has an intuitive nature in dealing wirh his clients. His editing experience is top notxh and I appreciate him dedication and passion for my project.
Brad is very experienced in my field which was important to me regarding my resume and future editing projects.
Rowena is fantastic! From the moment I met her, she was so easy to talk to and work with. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, professional, thorough and more than affordable! She agreed to meet me in person because I didn't have a resume for her to edit. She also provides interviewing preparation and tutoring! I recommend her to anyone who is looking for this type of service.
I called upon Laura to completely re-do my entire web site and create a new design (look and feel) including writing and editing all the copy. It was a sizable job. She was very patient with me I should I add! She did an outstanding and highly professional job. Without any hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Laura to anyone looking for web site development, copy design, social media marketing campaign and brand imaging. She delivers the whole package... I'm very pleased, and so will you be as well.
Rudy has terrific technical writing skills. His writing skills are equally precise and accurate in English and Spanish. It was a pleasure to work with Rudy as he edited my work.
Celia did a great job. What she promised she delivered at a fair price. I highly recommend her and look forward to using her talents on future projects
Heather has been fantastic and insightful - I'm so very happy I've hired Heather.
She asked for $4/page. I sent her 25 pages. No money has been exchanged and the edit is not finished. She seemed very pleasant on the phone.
Lovely, smart, punctual, and my children love her.
My second time hiring Verbal Ninja for writing and editing services. I won't use anyone else. 100% satisfied.
Brett helped me to edit my first poetry book. With her insight I was able to create an actual structure to my series of poems, to create a path that I could use to actually tell a story and make my work more than just a collection of writing. Not only did it help me with that book, but it also opened my eye to how I might look at things so that, moving forward, I could expand my thinking with regards to poetry collections.
