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 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!!

My daughter is in 3rd grade and is reading in a 2nd grade level. This was my first time hiring a tutor and didn't know what to expect. Rowena offered to tutor at our place which was a plus for me and decided to have her come in 3 times a week for 1 hour. After the 2nd week Rowena laid out an assessment tutoring plan for my daughter. So far I'm very pleased with her work and the best part is my daughter looks forward seeing her.

Celia copy-edited my manuscript as I was preparing to go on submission to literary agents. Her work was fast and extremely thorough, catching not only typos and grammatical mistakes, but also helping to maintain style consistency. I have since signed with a literary agent (with that same manuscript)! I would definitely recommend Celia to anyone looking for a key editorial eye to give your manuscript a boost of professionalism!

John did an excellent job editing my 130,000 word novel, and he did so within budget and in a timely manner. His comments were helpful and solidified my story wonderfully. I would certainly work with him again.

Couldn't be happier with my experience with Katie! She helped me with graduate school application essays that were very short. I wanted to get a lot of information across and she helped me navigate it, so my ideas were concise, genuine and eloquent. I highly suggest meeting with her in person as after just one meeting, we were able to construct an outline for an essay that before had been a mess of a free write. She enjoys doing this work and cares about each project, to the point she researched the specific program I was applying to, so as to more properly gear my personal statement for them. Without a doubt my go to for professional proofreading and editing.

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.

About

Many editors edit out the writer. I preserve each writer's unique voice and intention as I believe tit is the writer's energy that sells their writing. As a writer, I research well, always write original copy, and I give each project my best effort.

About

After working as an editor for a transcription company for a couple of years, I've built up my skills in proofreading and editing while working with audio. Now, I'm looking to expand and work with other types of content, both tied to audio and not. To that end, I'm currently getting used to working with the Chicago Manual of Style.
