Dan has all of the elements in an editor: knowledge, patience, kindness, and integrity--all at an affordable rate. If I would have consulted Dan months earlier, my stress would have been proportionately less. My committee accepted my dissertation--it is through Dan's guidance that I learned to edit text meticulously. Brainstorming and first draft writing is one thing--editing another. Highly recommended!

If you are looking for a reliable, professional editor who can help you prepare a top quality, professional document, then Dr. Berman is your answer. I was struggling with writing papers for a graduate level class, and my grades were suffering as a result. Dr. Berman not only helped me produce an amazing paper, but also helped me to understand how to write a good paper, so I would have the tools to do assignments independently in the future. He worked with me to teach me how to select a good topic, find the best sources, design an outline, and then do the actual writing. He helped me identify aspects of my writing that needed improvement, and guided me in the editing process. What I ended up with, according to the instructor, was the best paper in the class! Dr. Berman has been an invaluable resource for me, whenever I need help in a crunch. He is passionate about his work, highly committed to the best interests of his clients, and also entirely reliable (he even worked past midnight for me once, to help me meet a deadline). He is an excellent writer and teacher. You can't go wrong with him, for any kind of editorial services.

Jeff helped me with my Harvard Business School application essays. While I've accumulated a lot of great work experience, I don't always know how to best articulate my accomplishments. Jeff was tremendously insightful and a great editor. He spent time with me and helped make sure my writing came across intelligent, articulate, and that my examples were compelling and unique. I did end up being accepted to HBS and I really don't think I would have gotten into HBS were it not for his editing and writing skills.

    John was hired to write about a newly built $6Mil residential property in Palo Alto to be used in various advertisements. The writeup was engaging and described perfectly all the highlights of the property. It was a rush job, and he was able to get back the finished work very quickly.

      Caroline is a brilliant writer and has a gift for critiquing writing. I know, because she critiqued my book and did a fabulous job! She is a great person, highly professional and truly a pleasure to know and work with. Anyone would be lucky to have her as an editor.

      About

      I'm an editor with more than 35 years of experience, and I'm available for freelance work. My experience includes rewriting and editing children's, young-adult, and adult trade fiction and nonfiction, how-to and self-help books, books on alternative medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, yoga, qigong, healing, and nutrition, technical documents, marketing material, as well as autobiographies, biographies, and memoirs. Many people have told me that I have a gift for writing and rewriting clear, concise, colorful, and flowing prose that is perfectly punctuated and grammatically correct, keeping the author's voice or improving it. Sometimes with fiction, I suggest further character and plot development and more description. And I do whatever else is needed to make the book come alive and be more readable and publishable.
