Ellie did a thorough job editing my dissertation. She told me she would do it in 48 hours. However, it was completed in 24 hours. I would suggest Ellie for anyone who needs a paper edited in a short amount of time!

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!

I am writing as a PhD student, who two MA degrees and a fellow in the Writing Program at a Top 20 University. I have experience editing for an interdisciplinary journal, publishing, translated/edit for lawyers and business professionals and PBS, and teaching many courses at the college level. When it came time to find an editor for a project I am very dedicated to and which is theoretically and historically complex, I had a hard time finding someone whose capabilities I trusted, who could provide a quick turn around of my document, and maintain a friend yet professional level of communication. Temi is that person. No, she is not a friend of mine; No, I have not used thumbtack before; No, I dont tend to spend my time writing reviews. Simply put: her work compares to company's that quoted me at literally four times the cost, she has talent, is flexible, and responsible. She is comfortable receiving payment by Paypal or Venmo---amongst other official options. Overall, editing with Temi has been an ideal experience.

I cannot say enough about Thinque Prep and Joyee Lin. He is dedicated to his students success and does a very thorough job of preparing them for the ACT or SAT test. My son, Zack, who is very bright but requires a lot of patience worked with Joyee over the summer and brought his composite ACT score up from 30 to 33. His math score increased a full 4 pts. and he scored a 35 in English. Thinque Prep has other services related to tutoring and college application preparation. Zack will be working with Joyee on his college application essays. Joyee is in California and we are in Texas but this was never an issue as the sessions are done via video chat. The office manager Jen was great to work with and the appointment process was easy to navigate. I found the rates to be very competitive for like services. If there was a way to give extra stars I would!!

I have collaborated with Katie on many writing and editing projects. Katie’s been an invaluable resource and collaborator in helping me put my best foot forward through the written word. Whether you need a second set of eyes for general email correspondence, to help with business presentations, to edits on your resume and LinkedIn profile (all things Katie has helped me with), Katie writes and edits with a keen sense of beginning, middle and end, getting to the core of what’s most important to convey all while keenly focusing on succinctness, and a sensitivity to the nuances of effective written communication. I highly recommend her.

Alan Brock has been helping me develop a YouTube video displaying my art. This has involved photos, photoshop editing and considerable maneuvering on the computer and internet. I would recommend him.
