My time with Maverick Consulting was everything I could have hoped for and more. My name is Joshua Wolk and as someone who has severe dyslexia, resumes and cover letter writing is extremely difficult for me. My federal resume create by Maverick Consulting was well written and insightful. Additionally, I presented my resume to a member of the Rocky Mountain National Park human resources team for input and it was well received. As so someone who works in natural resources management (a scientific and jargon filled profession) I was worried this would be a problem. This was not the case and my time spent with Lisa-Beth ended in a out standing resume and cover letter! I would and will recommend this service to anyone interested in a tailored federal resume and cover letter!

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 learned more than writing. Also, I enjoy spending time with Lois because I learn so many things that I never came across before. She makes things understandable and easy to digest. I can see the things we talk about in everyday life and value the things I learn. I get to apply what I learn with Lois since it is very simple to use.

I have been pondering in my ❤ for over twenty years to take a chance with my writing of songs and pomes. When I finally decide to take a chance on my maniusripts, I found the right person for me. I finally decide to take a chance and spend some money. Not so much for speeding the money, it was my pride. If you want something done, then do it. Thankyou Melanie, we need you. Jesus Christ will never let us down.

I hired Karryn to declutter and reorganize a very cluttered home study and 2 large closets - one in the study and one in my bedroom. She worked two days with me on this in addition to her thoughtful consultation that she offered free of charge on the front end of the project. What I have to say is that Karryn is superb - she has tremendous vision about how to both sequence and transform a room. Not only does she have a lot of energy and physical strength to do that - and she is incredibly efficient. She has a clear picture of the steps needed to accomplish the daunting task ahead. She also brought in a handyman to do some work and haulers to take away excess furniture so these tasks were coordinated by her as well and the folks she found were excellent. So I loved working with Karryn - to show you before and after pictures of my study you wouldn't believe it is the same room. We removed half the bookshelves and file cabinets that filled the place and converted half of it into a working yoga studio. The entire room opened up with light and space from these changes. The closets are literally so beautiful I find myself leaving the doors open so that I can enjoy the order and symmetry of the space. Before Karryn's help the closets were so packed I could barely open and close them - literally I would have to push in clothes and shoes to open and close the doors! Now they are transformed! Karryn is also incredibly thoughtful - she would email me possible organizing tools between times we worked - really helpful - like shoe holders (who knew?) and shelf lifters and different types of hangers and cord organizers that save space and organize it better. So what I found was that with these "space savers," while I had to downsize a lot - I was able to find a space for more clothes and accessories than I initially imagined. I also found that working with Karryn, she is very dedicated to the tasks in front of her. Even while eating lunch - supposedly her time off - we would be discussing options. The other thing I want to say is that downsizing is an emotional process. You have to let go of things that have a lot of sentimental value. But Karryn handled this prospect with delicacy and compassion - she never pushed me - she would just pose questions that prompted me to think about various items' utility and worth. This non coercive but effective approach gave me space to make the decisions I had to make. And she did this with kindness and light humor to make the process less arduous. So in short, I cannot recommend Karryn enough - I am also going to have her transform my office at work which is equally chaotic and cluttered and I have full confidence that she will give me the outstanding quality of service that she provided thus far. She is both amazing and gifted as an organizer and coach and I would highly recommend her services to anyone wanting to transform and organize their space. She's a tiger and as anyone knows trying to reorganize clutter and chaos - you need a strong advocate who "has your back" and who honors your dream for the space. For me, that person is Karryn.

Skip Press displayed outstanding literary writing skills when he edited my romance novel. He turned it into an entertaining, compelling, fluent, and beautiful story that will be memorable to all its readers. Besides, Skip is personable, reliable, and gets the work finished on time without any hassle. As a result of my good experience working with Skip, I highly recommend him to other authors. Annie S.

Cynthia is my writing consultant and she is amazing. From the first session with her my writing jumped on track and began to flow. She not only inspired me creatively, she helped me focus on the mechanics of breaking down my story. Work with her - she will help you get the story you want to tell, out.

Cindy is an absolute visionary. I am a senior in high school, and I met Cindy a few months before I began this school year. My strengths academically are mainly in reading, writing, social studies, and philosophy, but Cindy has enhanced my knowledge and appreciation for mathematics, science, and my capabilities in problem solving as a whole. When I first met Cindy, I was in desperate need of a math tutor, but what I received was more than I could have ever imagined. Aside from her outstanding mathematical capabilities, Cindy has served as my mentor, ultimate problem solver, entrepreneurial guru, and ultimate inspiration throughout my college prep and application process. As a fellow performer, and actress, Cindy also has helped me explore my passion for theatre, and expand it to become a flourishing intrigue with anthropology, psychology, and motivational speaking. She is literally the reason that I am now travelling as a motivational speaker/ Body Positive facilitator to youth, ranging from middle school to high school. In offering her invaluable time, ambitious mindset, and incredibly compassionate demeanor, she has allowed me to find my true passions, and encourage others to do the same. Furthermore, Cindy is beyond this world amazing. Whether to call her an angel, an oracle, a goddess, a reincarnated Albert Einstein, or any other form of awe, I am not worthy to concretely say. However, I can attest that Cindy has absolutely changed my vision for myself and the world around me, my societal views and aspirations, as well as having enhanced my mathematical and test taking capabilities. Truly, Cindy is the most wonderful, kind, creative, talented, and intelligent essence, one could ever hope to meet or aspire to become.

Celia is the best proof-reader and copy editor you will ever encounter. Her proof-reading skills are legendary. Even the tiniest of typos and punctuation errors will not escape her notice. She knows all the rules of grammar, knows verb tenses, and knows active voice, the key to dynamic writing. There is none better. And she is a pleasure to work with.

Trish is a wonderful editor! Her editing of my memoir manuscript is impeccable. Her skills far exceeded my expectations. She's good at what she does, and is sensitive to my "baby." As a writer, that is important to me. Her suggestions for making changes are spot on. I highly recommend her for any and all editing and writing services!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you hire a good grant writer?

Grants are available to nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses that qualify for government grants, and individuals who qualify for foundation or government grants. Hiring a good grant writer can help you gain funding in your chosen field. According to the American Grant Writers’ Association, grant writers can help you research potential grant opportunities; write grant proposals, create budgets, and build budget narratives; review written materials before you submit; prepare a business plan; analyze your organization for grant competitive qualities; prepare research grants; help with 501(c)(3) applications for nonprofits; and more. Investing in the right grant writer could result in a financial win for your organization. Generally no licenses or certificates are required to be a good grant writer, but you may want to find a grant writer who has been certified (not just received a certificate of completion) by a reputable organization such as the Grant Professionals Certification Institute. Qualities to look for in a good grant writer include:

  • Proven success writing winning grants, especially in your target area.
  • Strong writing skills.
  • Strong math skills and demonstrated proficiency with budgeting.
  • Careful attention to detail — brilliant grant proposals may be rejected just for formatting errors, so you want someone who follows instructions explicitly.
  • Expertise in your target area.
  • Punctuality and good communication skills.

How much does a grant writer cost?

Hiring a grant writer can give you a competitive edge when applying for financial grants for your business or nonprofit organization, or as an individual. The cost to hire a grant writer can vary depending on their academic background, areas of expertise, previous grant writing success and years of experience. According to the Grant Professionals Association, grant writers should be paid hourly or by flat fee. It is unethical for a grant writer to accept a commission or percentage compensation of grant monies received. They can, however, be awarded bonuses in line with the hiring company’s prevailing practices. Here are some examples of average grant writing fees:

  • Hourly rate for grant writers with less experience or fewer grants awarded: $25-$35 per hour.
  • Hourly rate for grant writers with some degree of success: $35-$75 per hour.
  • Hourly rate for grant writers with proven success winning large grants: $75-$150 or more per hour.
  • For a smaller grant, the writer may charge a flat fee of $200-$500 for preparation and submission.  

Pricing may also vary based on the complexity of the grant application. A federal grant that requires pages of research, budgets and a business plan may take more than 30 hours to prepare. For a high-level grant writer who charges $100 per hour, this means $3,000 or more in grant writing fees.

Most grant writers will provide you with a total cost estimate before agreeing to the work. You may be required to pay a deposit up front, or the grant writer may work from a retainer. Often, seasoned grant writers pay for themselves in the long run by writing successful grants.
