After requesting a quote to revamp mu current resume with a lift, The Edit Guru offered her services to me at a market rate and I expected quality, so I accepted her services among three others. There was no shortfalls to any of her rewrite and suggestions for edits, she delivered an exceptional first draft that was as promised a revamp of my resume. She delivered the final draft about a month ago. Since then, I distributed to approximately 20 jobs and received 6 interviews with 4 advancing to final round. Prior to her edits, I had sent my resume to 75 jobs with 1 interview. Overall, I highly recommend The Edit Guru for your resume edits. I plan to hire The Edit Guru for another editing project soon. Also, the Edit Guru has a great personality when working with you on the phone with your edits, totally worth a nice chat with a smart writer!
Very happy with the copy editing of my book. Mike helped me better understand what my common pitfalls are and greatly improved the readability factor of the document. He was very communicative throughout the process and is well-versed in Scrivener. Looking forward to putting this out in the world!
Jim was a pleasure to work with. He was extremely helpful and professional. He used multiple cameras to videotape our event, which was incredibly useful for our editing purposes.
Undoubtedly the best experience with an editor I've had. I look forward to working with her more as I embark on my journey through grad school. If I could give more stars, I would! You will have nothing to regret by selecting Textrous for your editing needs!
I had been procrastinating for quite some time about hiring a web designer, but was so glad to be matched up with J-357 through thumbtack! From our first conversation, I knew that her great personality was going to be the perfect fit. She was extremely easy to work with, and provided exceptional communication. Being that we live on opposite coasts, I truly appreciated her quick communication and adaptability. She really went above and beyond to work with me across time zones, and was extremely flexible with my schedule. But it didn't stop there...the website that she designed for me is absolutely amazing; it is truly everything I envisioned and more! J-357 provided a training session once the website was complete. She is great to work with if you are not tech savvy, and explains the details in clear and simplified terms. She is extremely patient, takes into consideration your suggestions, and is extremely quick with the edits. Compared to other web designers that I researched, her pricing is extremely reasonable. J-357 provided an awesome service all around. I would recommend this web designer to anyone who is looking for a high quality, professional or personal website. Thanks J-357!
Tim is an amazing teacher! I live in Palo Alto and needed specific help from him with social media posts, my ESL blog, editing, applications, etc. Tim has an amazing abilities to use English at its best. The fact that he's originally from Britain is definitely a major plus! He is gentle, kind, Intelligent and very broad minded and. Lastly, his services are fairly priced!
Julian Esteban Torres Lopez responded to my query promptly and with professionalism. I'm an English teacher (secondary language arts), and wanted another set of eyes on a large project. His experience in the private sector and also his education made him a good fit for my editing needs.
Wyn was extremely conscientious in editing my 2000 word memoir piece. He was happy to explain the reason behind any edit, as well as be candid about the fact that some rewrite suggestions were just a matter of personal opinion (and okay for me to reject). I will incorporate many of his suggestions. He was also obliging in offering his overall opinion (which I asked for), and is very easy to communicate with.
Ellie Schamber mentored me through my graduate prerequisite courses in Psychology as well as my Ph.D. dissertation. She also edited many of my papers and the dissertation. Ellie is a very good writer, and she did an excellent job of both guiding me and editing the manuscript. The dissertation was approved and praised by the academic dean for its writing as well as the content. We are now collaborating on a book, and I am very pleased with her ability to understand abstract ideas and articulate them clearly. Ellie always came on time, over the period of several years, and provided me with the highest quality work.
She understood what I needed and then provided valuable and relevant editing.
Darya is great! She helped me prep for the verbal section on the GMAT. She was really patient and taught me very useful tips. She created a in depth study plan that addressed my weakness and kept me motivated. I would totally recommend her.
Ruth was an invaluable resource proofreading and editing my latest writing project. She is smart, listens well, and patient. The quality of her work is excellent, she is professional, responsive, and turned things around for me when promised (ahead of schedule, actually). She was a calming influence and an excellent sounding board as I discussed ideas with her. I would, without reservation, recommend her to others.
Sally is the consummate professional. She is extremely detailed-oriented, sensitive to the client's needs, always thoughtful regarding the budget and the deadlines, and the kind of team player that you want on your project. She has superior writing, editing and proofing skills, along with all of her marketing communications talents. She is culturally, socially and technologically aware, and stays focused on presenting a superior product. I have worked with Sally on several projects over many years, and can honestly say that each time the end result is far better with her being a part of it.
I've worked with and for Mr. Costley for many years. He has always been professional with his work, done solid reporting, and created pieces that are both intriguing and informative. Additionally, as an editor, Mr. Costley has been able to regularly produce great story ideas and inspire his staff and colleagues with his passion.
I have had Colleen's help in editing two very different projects: a business proposal and a website, so this is almost two reviews in one. Both were done VERY well - she is a strong technical writer with an eye for professional writing. The website, which was to promote an event I created, was completely different. I wanted it to be really fun and informative. Colleen is creative with an awesome sense of humor and she was perfect for the job. She took my dull content and turned it into something that was actually fun to read. Versatile, fast and smart. I strongly recommend her for your editing or writing needs.
Ms. Halper scores highly in all five categories. Her editing encompasses logic, English usage, and general organization. She leaves an option for personal preference, as in, "You may prefer to say this this way, but I would prefer that way," and leaves the final decision to the author. She works diligently; I receive her edits in a timely manner. Her cost is reasonable. I feel lucky to have found such a competent resource.
Chris worked with my daughter all of last school year on a weekly basis. She's gained confidence and improved reading fluency.
Welcome to my content driven world...an exploration into the vastness of good content. Each time I write, be it for myself, for another company or when it comes to curating a simple message, I try to push the limit of what the words can do. I like to refer to myself as a contentpreneur because I love to find never before used word combinations that have the potential of being the next viral catch phrase. It's what makes me excited to work with content in any capacity. When it comes to writing about a new topic, I go at it head on. There is no territory I fear to tread on when it comes to writing. I feel confident that I can write creatively, intelligently and simply about any topic or subject. I came across a quote recently that read, "The things you are passionate about are not random. They are your calling." Content, writing and copy editing, I strongly believe, are my calling. I am out to make an editorial difference.
I operate the english language with surgical grammar and punctuation. I am extremely high efficiency so no dead line is to soon. I work all hours of the night to insure that students papers are returned before the start of classes.
