Couldn't be happier with my experience with Katie! She helped me with graduate school application essays that were very short. I wanted to get a lot of information across and she helped me navigate it, so my ideas were concise, genuine and eloquent. I highly suggest meeting with her in person as after just one meeting, we were able to construct an outline for an essay that before had been a mess of a free write. She enjoys doing this work and cares about each project, to the point she researched the specific program I was applying to, so as to more properly gear my personal statement for them. Without a doubt my go to for professional proofreading and editing.

I have worked with Dorothy for over 5 years and have found her to be a great editor. Dorothy is very thorough, catching everything from spelling and grammatical errors to inconsistencies in usage and formatting. She ensures that your document and written thoughts are clear and easy to understand, even if what you provide her with is far from it. Dorothy is cheerful and easy to work with. I can’t recommend her work more strongly!

I would highly recommend Jacey Leon’s services. Jacey is personable, accessible and professional from beginning to end. What was particularly impressive about Jacey was the respect that she demonstrated for my manuscript. She was as invested in proofreading my work as if it were her own. She was communicative, courteous, thorough and reliable … and really good!

I am a college student (majoring in English) and spend the majority of my free time writing and reading. Yes, I am the person that my friends ask to look over their resume. Yes, I am the person who can tell you where the spelling errors are in quite a few famous books. No, I am not a total stickler for "the rules" all of the time, and understand that style is just as important as what you are actually trying to say. I have both a Mac and a PC so I can view pretty much any type of document. If you have a hardcopy of your draft, even better! Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have. I look forward to working with you.
