Dr. Kovan was an absolute amazing editor who was very professional but also very friendly. Dr. Kovan was easy to work with and talk to. I was always able to get in touch with her and develop a plan for the editing of my dissertation. Dr. Kovan was very flexible with my deadlines even when I asked for some extremely quick turn edits of my dissertation. Dr. Kovan is an expert in APA formatting as well as scholarly writing. I plan to use Dr. Kovan for all my future published papers, resumes, and scholarly writing. Dr. Kovan is top notch, professional, detailed, and someone you can talk to. She is the editor you want to choose. Andrew Clayton Doctoral Candidate

Jim was a pleasure to work with. He was extremely helpful and professional. He used multiple cameras to videotape our event, which was incredibly useful for our editing purposes.

I had been procrastinating for quite some time about hiring a web designer, but was so glad to be matched up with J-357 through thumbtack! From our first conversation, I knew that her great personality was going to be the perfect fit. She was extremely easy to work with, and provided exceptional communication. Being that we live on opposite coasts, I truly appreciated her quick communication and adaptability. She really went above and beyond to work with me across time zones, and was extremely flexible with my schedule. But it didn't stop there...the website that she designed for me is absolutely amazing; it is truly everything I envisioned and more! J-357 provided a training session once the website was complete. She is great to work with if you are not tech savvy, and explains the details in clear and simplified terms. She is extremely patient, takes into consideration your suggestions, and is extremely quick with the edits. Compared to other web designers that I researched, her pricing is extremely reasonable. J-357 provided an awesome service all around. I would recommend this web designer to anyone who is looking for a high quality, professional or personal website. Thanks J-357!

Julian Esteban Torres Lopez responded to my query promptly and with professionalism. I'm an English teacher (secondary language arts), and wanted another set of eyes on a large project. His experience in the private sector and also his education made him a good fit for my editing needs.

Kristen was excellent in every way. Her editing suggestions were all very helpful. By the way, this block of your form was almost invisible to me. I didn't even know it was here, until "Submit Review" wouldn't work for me, and I searched for the reason why. This part of the form appeared very faintly, the text in it was illegible because it was so faint.

Wyn was extremely conscientious in editing my 2000 word memoir piece. He was happy to explain the reason behind any edit, as well as be candid about the fact that some rewrite suggestions were just a matter of personal opinion (and okay for me to reject). I will incorporate many of his suggestions. He was also obliging in offering his overall opinion (which I asked for), and is very easy to communicate with.

Todd is excellent! I hired Todd to help me write a wedding ceremony script for a wedding I was asked to officiate. He had great advice and was able to draft a script for me with a very quick turnaround time. His writing was exactly on point for the tone I was trying to create. He understood my audience and also got that this was an especially meaningful project for me. I would recommend him for anyone who is looking for help with a special writing project.

Ellie Schamber mentored me through my graduate prerequisite courses in Psychology as well as my Ph.D. dissertation. She also edited many of my papers and the dissertation. Ellie is a very good writer, and she did an excellent job of both guiding me and editing the manuscript. The dissertation was approved and praised by the academic dean for its writing as well as the content. We are now collaborating on a book, and I am very pleased with her ability to understand abstract ideas and articulate them clearly. Ellie always came on time, over the period of several years, and provided me with the highest quality work.

Ruth was an invaluable resource proofreading and editing my latest writing project. She is smart, listens well, and patient. The quality of her work is excellent, she is professional, responsive, and turned things around for me when promised (ahead of schedule, actually). She was a calming influence and an excellent sounding board as I discussed ideas with her. I would, without reservation, recommend her to others.

Due to my diminishing knowledge of English grammar, I searched the Internet for an editor to help navigate the murky byways of periods, commas, verb endings and sentence structure. Thankfully I came upon Steve Dulas, a former copy editor for a local county newspaper in the San Francisco Bay area. I couldn't be more pleased with Steve’s work. Not only does he have a lifetime career in editing and turning out “clean” copy, but I found he also carefully reads for content and offers creative and sometimes just common sense advice to look at vague or weak areas so that the narrative flows and is coherent. This advice is always given as a kind suggestion; Steve is never demeaning or heavy handed. Steve reviewed half of my book (45,000 words) in a timely two week period, sending me one copy with the changes and yet another copy with creative thoughts in specific places. It really was an outstanding job. I can happily give Steve a five star reference and am certain anyone would be as pleased as I was to find him. I plan to use him again.

I have had Colleen's help in editing two very different projects: a business proposal and a website, so this is almost two reviews in one. Both were done VERY well - she is a strong technical writer with an eye for professional writing. The website, which was to promote an event I created, was completely different. I wanted it to be really fun and informative. Colleen is creative with an awesome sense of humor and she was perfect for the job. She took my dull content and turned it into something that was actually fun to read. Versatile, fast and smart. I strongly recommend her for your editing or writing needs.

Jackie was able to help me with the typos in my book. I am dyslexic, so I will never be able to catch every typos, but she did and she turned around 272 pages of work in about a week. It was amazing. I have always wanted to get my book on the market, and I couldn't do it without her. She was also able to walk me through the self-publishing, which was another valuable skill that she has. It was great to work with Jackie, and I am writing more and more, so I will use her in the future as well.
