Rebecca is very nice, detail-oriented and patient. She keeps frequent communication with me throughout the editing procedure (there is no solid deadline for my work. Nice to be notified of the progress). She is very responsive. Her editing style is more than grammar check and proofreading , it's reorganizing and rewriting (at least to my essays). She did an excellent work editing my three JD application essays. She would also ask you for feedback for her work so that she can absorb your ideas before the final proofread. Very satisfied!! Strongly recommend her!

Laurel was a trusted ally in the editing of my memoir manuscript (six months that included rewriting and reviewing). I felt her dedication to my own vision and voice in every creative idea and technical correction she suggested. Laurel's knowledge, insight and enthusiasm increased the strength of my book and my confidence tremendously. This has been invaluable as I now look for an agent and publication. Highly recommended!

Charles Koppelman is a pro. He offers a turnkey service -- helping with hands-on conception, script development, pre-production, shooting and editing in a conscientious way that capitalizes on his considerable experience with both promotional and documentary-style production. He is responsive, easy to work with, and delivers a polished finished product. I would definitely work with him again.

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!

I first worked with Tara 25 years ago, and then hired her into Andersen Consulting when I was promoted into a leadership role at our World Headquarters. I have always known her to be professional, delivering high quality content (e.g., writing, editing, copywriting). She's an effective communicator who can handle PR, content strategy, social media, etc. At my current company where I am SVP of Operations and Customer Success, we leverage a network of freelancers to help deliver content for customer websites, customer SEO blogs, and social media posts. Tara is one of our valued freelancers. I would highly recommend her.

Anish was excellent at walking through some of the tougher GRE concepts with me, ensuring I was prepared for all of the different types of questions on the exam. I am much more comfortable and confident in tackling the material after working with him.

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.

Michael is an outstanding book editor. I've been working with him on my manuscript for the past two years. He excels in the intangibles, with terrific suggestions about improving a story's pace, character development and plot. So often when Michael suggests something, a lightbulb goes off in my head and I think: Of course! Why didn't I think of that? Beyond his uncanny ability to see where my story should be going, he also detects what's missing. This is a trait any writer wants to have in an editor--an ability to identify what needs to be added or expanded upon. Beyond his professional editing skills, Michael is consistently prompt and turns drafts around well within his promised timeframe. Michael is not only a great editor but he can, if needed, be a coach as well. He knows what his writers are going through, because he's a writer himself. He has been important to me in his coaching role, because he's helped me plow through the rough spots that are inevitable in completing something as complicated as a novel. He becomes a partner in getting the job done, and his words of encouragement and hope make all the difference.

This is my first time using Thumbtack so I didn't know what to expect. I received many offers but I was more captivated with Judy's bio. Like me, she just starting out. As entrepreneurs, we're all looking to be given a shot. Jody is a LIFE SAVER! I had no idea where to begin with my project. She's educated, an attentive listener and will do an amazing job articulating your vision. I highly recommend her.

    Amy edited a personal story I wrote for a blog. She did an excellent job in cleaning it up and making it presentable. She asked me lots of questions about different parts of my story to make sure it was perfect. I would highly recommend Amy for any editorial needs.
