The Edit Guru did a great job editing my graduate admissions writing prompts. She helped me see the view point of the admissions officer and helped me clean up language which was too specialized or 'industry-specific' -- I will definitely reach out again if I have new writing projects.

Jeff was fantastic. He is knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. He met a quick turnaround (10 days) deadline to edit my book for content, structure, and grammar. I would recommend him, and will definitely use him again for future projects! As an author, I was seeking an editor who would work with my voice to bring it out more - not change it. Jeff brought a great balance of clarity and direction, while balancing and polishing my voice - not inserting his. After interviewing two other editors and working with one in the past, this seems a rarer commodity than it sounds. His fees are also comparable to industry competitors, and reasonable. I will definitely use Jeff again for future editing and feedback about my writing!

Better writing brought to you by better editing. Editoro! doesn't pull any punches on story development, manuscript improvements and being there for the writer. Sometimes just kicking butt is the best strategy to get the character, plot, story, and yes, the writer going. They kick butt. Recommended editing services.

Michael has been an invaluable English tutor for our son. He was able to artfully help our son with his college essay, guiding him through the writing process while making sure the essay was in our son's own words. Our son was accepted into his first choice college, partly based on this essay. Even after our son's freshman year of college, Michael continues to be available to tutor him. Michael has delved deeply into understanding our son's writing challenges, identifying specific steps to help him get on the right track. With his insight and gentle manor, Michael has connected well with our son, allowing him to be a very effective tutor. Michael is very responsive and flexible, providing sessions on Skype when our son needs them. Michael has proven to be a top-notch writing tutor for our son.

My savior in the world of resume writing and career marketing! I've been CEO and co-founder of a successful e-commerce business and run my own consultancy for the last ten years. As such, it's been a loooong time since I've written a resume or needed one. I am now making a career pivot and am applying for positions abroad. I was in overwhelm, with the classic entrepreneur's rant, "unemployed and unemployable, that's why I have my own company." I wasn't impressed with the quality of the numerous resume writers I was finding versus the fees they were charging. My pain point was, how do I find somebody to extract all the varied and valuable skills, initiatives and accomplishments I've had the last ten years of running my own businesses? Luckily, I found Brian. His process is very in-depth, consisting of a two hour onboarding interview, a follow-up revision session, and as many drafts and edits of your resume as needed until I was happy. I also had him re-create my LinkedIn profile. The end product is exactly what I wanted and needed and I'm so glad that I chose him to do the work. His rates are very, very reasonable, quite a bit less than others I'd found, and the quality of the work, extraordinary. Plus he's a world-traveler, author and musician, so the side conversations are great as well. Highest recommendation! Thanks, Brian.

Her attention to detail, ways of phrasing and insightful ideas and corrections were right on. It gave us clear, useful and non-confusing materials to send to our students. Thank you, Olga!
