She did her research about my technical field to know how to describe me in a resume. She explains well about the type of resume writing style is necessary and the language that is use to communicate my skills. I will recommend to others about her editing and composing a resume language after interviewing with me. She takes the time to personalize your resume. I was worry that my technical field will be difficult to comprehend in a resume, but I am glad I got a chance to work with her creatively through the process.
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.
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!
Chris O’Toole took on the Sisyphean task of: 1) proofreading; 2) providing a general critique: and 3) giving insight on whether and how to move forward on my draft play and associated essay. Mr. O’Toole use the yellow highlighter feature in Word to show his proofreading suggestions. I am still finding grammatical and word choice errors. This may well be because—due to my limited eye-sight— I didn’t see all his yellow highlights in making my corrections. He provided a general, dip-lomatic, thoughtful critique of the play’s subject matter; use of metaphors, poetry, and language; and connection with a reader or an audience. In making and evaluating my decision to hire an editor in general and Mr. O’Toole specifically, I looked at five factors: 1) experience and expertise; 2) cost; 3) turn-around time; 4) interactions; and 5) quality of work. Regarding the first, while I do not know Mr. Toole’s experience with plays, his website clearly indicates significant experience in editing other forms of professional writing. I believe the quality of editors’ websites and offers of services is a good indicator of their knowledge of and skill in teaching clients like me how to connect with their readers and audiences. Regarding cost, other editors I consulted charged on an hourly or a per page basis while Mr. Toole, in this first editing interaction, offered a very reasonable flat fee. There are pluses and minuses with each ap-proach. A flat fee was best for me for the initial editing of a draft play. The third factor is crucial for most authors working on deadlines. Mr. O’Toole sent me his edits and critique within two weeks. A second editor I contacted told me she could not get to my draft until January. Fourth, ed-iting is a collaborative enterprise: an editor needs to know the writer’s audience, intent, focus, and voice to help that author create his or her best work. Mr. O’Toole gave me feedback and questions on the writing sample I originally sent him. He sent me a follow-up email—with a targeted ques-tion--while editing my manuscript. Overall, I am happy with the initial editing efforts Mr. O’Toole gave me: professional; cost-effective; timely; and interactive. I am still rolling around the four page, shiny, rock critique he also gave me: gold or dross; foundational, aspirational, or weighing down: moving the draft higher or back into an inky sea? Whatever it ultimately is, he initiated a thought provoking internal and external conversation for/with a novice playwright just as my response here illustrates the meta-phorical challenges Mr. O’Toole confronted in critiquing and advising me on my writing.
Robert was on it from the time I requested help from Thumbtack. He is quick fast and efficient. I will hire Robert to assist me anytime I have editing or professional paper writing needs! Thanks again Robert.
Elegant Editing did an excellent job for my book.
Ms. Karubian has helped me in editing my published childrens' stories, poetry and papers written by my customers for print. Her help has been invaluable in editing and imaginative suggestions she has made to enhance the stories . I recommend her highly. It is a pleasure to work with her.
Skip is fast, accurate, and even has a sense of humor. I will use him for all of my editing. My book is in the health and wellness genre, and he kept my "voice" but corrected my sentence structure and punctuation.
Absolute pleasure to work with! She did wonders with editing!! 10/10 recommend!!
I have known Kate for years - I consistently go to her for writing advice/editing. Most recently, I got her assistance on my graduate school applications - she really helped me make a clear and honest statement. Five stars!!
Was thorough with editing my resume into looking attractive to recruiters.
Celia is highly skilled and has strong instincts for improving writing clarity. I was impressed by her responsiveness, flexibility, and response time given the complexity of the assignment. She obviously cares about her clients and is willing to go the extra mile to help sharpen writing to convey exactly what you need it to. I highly recommend Celia Pool.
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.
Kevin keeps it real, really love his work on projects. Responds so quickly I feel like he's superhuman. Started with editing my vlogs but now I outsource often for marketing videos for my company. Thank you Kevin!
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.
Great to work with, she helped me with all of my book. Her proofreading is beyond any professional I have ever seen.
Marc helped me edit my website materials and the experience had been great! I contacted Marc for proofreading and I really like his writing style. Besides, he is very patient and nice to work with. I strongly recommend Marc!!
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.
Chris has edited my blogs, speeches, and writings for over two years. He also handles all of my social media. I couldn't have accomplished what I have without him. He is my eyes and ears for publications and social media. -- Patty Alper (www.teachtowork.com)
