Lois is a wonderful tutor. As soon as she heard me talking she knew exactly what was it that I needed to train my English in order to take it to the next level. Highly recommendable to those who have an advanced level of English, because she is really precise and you get to learn a lot of history on the language. It is very enjoyable and it makes sense. If you need ESL, she's the one! She is also a writer, producer and acting coach, therefore she's also super creative and helpful when it comes to having to work out some text.

Chris was very attentive and informative. He was able to edit and provide me with powerful reasons why I should reword various sentences. I would recommend him wholeheartedly. His work was on time, worth the cost, and his experience in writing is helpful in guiding and supporting anyone new or old in the process.

I've known Skip for almost ten years and in that time working with him, collaborating with him, he is a plethora of knowledge. He knows the ins and outs, his reach is far and wide and knows many folks in the industry. He is always willing to help a fellow writer in any way, he seems selfless in his acts. He has done work for me and I can tell you that he is a professional who is down to earth, and down-right honest.

Mr. Morris-Lent helped me with my applications to get into NYU and The New School. I am pleased to say that with his help I got into both! He's a great writer and helps you put your thoughts onto paper. He has a pretty flexible schedule and makes time for you if you need it. All in all, he's a great tutor to hire. Thanks!

Cynthia is incredibly insightful, supportive and always professional. Throughout the time she coached me creatively she always stayed focused, reminding me every session what my goal is. She helped me take small steps every day to do the work spiritually, creatively and she also has an excellent grasp on the practical and the necessary small steps that make the big strides possible. When I'm not working with Cynthia I now have a structure and a routine to my day, and resources that she turned me onto to keep me going in the right direction. I referred another working writer to Cynthia and will continue to bring her clients because she has been an amazing resource and an invaluable inspiration to me.

Kandice is excellent. She is extremely professional, highly talented and has the wonderful ability to teach in a manner that you "get" the material. More impressive are Kandice's writing abilities. Whether her work is for social media or scripts for production, I've found her writing to be very expressive, delivering the "message" in the manner we wanted.

My writing improved from being someone who had big ideas for tv and films to actually having a pragmatic plan writing those ideas into reality. From bi-weekly meetings we started with my premise line. Then as the months went by we worked on my beat sheet which was strengthened into a feature length screenplay I am working on right now. I was surprised at the independence and growth I gained from working with Amy. She would look at the beginning of the year with me via video conferencing and emails, listen to my goals (i.e. I want to build a screenwriting portfolio that consists of a tv spec, original pilot and a feature length screenplay) and she would break down the weeks with sizable writing exercises that would piece together my screenplay and tv script pieces. I feel great inspiration from watching movies and want to produce movies that move others as well..but sometimes you need a "coach" to help you get from Point A to Z. Starting a writing project can be daunting and it's difficult to "get your sneakers on, tie the laces and start running." I now feel empowered with the tools to produce my stories from conception to screen. I have already finished a tv spec, pilot, essays and working on a feature length screenplay. The main thing Amy has taught me as a writer is the balance between the artistic process as well as being successful in the industry. That honing the artistic process and building a strong body of work will attract the industry professionals that will want to work with me. She does a trustworthy job of moving both these processes simultaneously. Like most artists I juggle a lot. I have a day job, I am an actor who works on various shoots, takes classes and auditions for big opportunities all while working with Amy to realize my dream of becoming a show runner and director where screenwriting will be a vital tool. Amy has a gift for tailor making a program that fits the unique individual. Despite my very busy schedule, her efficient and tailor made syllabus has encouraged me to write regularly, little by little a day which has added up to a strong writing portfolio.

VK composed a biography for my band and we gave her a fairly elaborate fantasy concept to work with. She turned around an incredible story about our main character and brought the entire concept to life. Her story has been the basis of much content for the band and the fans adore it. Her writing is impeccably visual, painting an incredible picture for her readers. VK is a multi talented writer and social media guru - we are so grateful to have been involved with VK and LBS!

    Ms. Nash has grammar-checked and given notes on five of my finished screenplays. I found her work to be concise and finished in a timely manner. Her grammar-check was always one hundred percent accurate, rivaling that of the local Cray Supercomputer. Ms. Nash's notes were always specific, well-informed and expressed with a certain panache. I found myself following her advice on many occasions, resulting in a streamlined and more interesting screenplay. I will not hesitate to seek out Ms. Nash's services regardless of the amount of Best Writer awards that roll in as the liver rolls out.

    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.
