With the help of Rebecca's expertise, I was accepted to medical school and to be completely honest I could not have done it without her! I wanted to thank her so much for helping me throughout this long process (almost one year)! She truly made me the best applicant I could be from writing a new personal statement and editing my entire application along with CV, to writing and editing over 100 secondary application and even helping prepare a stellar personal statement for a prestige summer research position at Harvard! Words can not express how thankful I am to have had Rebecca as my personal professional writer. I really could not have done it without her. I wanted to thank her for being so patient with me and always ready to give me a pep talk and making me believe that this was all possible. I wanted to tell you all this over the phone, but I would have gotten too emotional and started crying because of how amazing she is and how she played such an integral role in helping me achieve my dream(s). So instead I am crying tears of appreciation and joy while I write this review. Thank you Rebecca! :)
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!
Alen Nye and (sem)antics editing services did an amazing job! I received rapid responses to my inquiries and emails, and an incredible professional and thoughtful editing service. I couldn't have been more pleased. Highly recommended!
Im helped me with editing my manuscript for a book. He was very detail oriented and did a great job! Could not have done it without him
Incredibly professional and was able to really capture our brand voice. Great to work with and took direction well and really ran with it. I will continue to use Black Dot for all my web and print copy.
Marc did a fantastic job writing the copy for our app. Very easy to work with. Shared useful insights as well. Highly recommended!
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.
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.
I was on a short deadline and Brody was very mindful of that and made herself available even on the weekend to make sure I got my paper in on time. She went above and beyond with her edits and even did research on my behalf. I highly recommend her!
Clients: Delta Airlines & American Express Serene has been such a pleasure to collaborate with on multiple projects at Epsilon/Solutionset. Strategic, smart and well composed, she is always one step ahead as she is continuously thinking about the big picture, the overarching consumer experience and brand voice. She is an excellent communicator, and if under crazy stressful deadlines or multitasking (which happens quite often), she always delivers with perfection and wit. We are perfect balance between left brain-right brain. Together we create a cohesive story evoking inspiration through messaging, strategy and design on every project.
Ms. Kerner is one of the best writers I know. She particularly edits extremely well. Trained in the traditional rules of writing which is a lost art these days, Ms Kerner has a fundamental knowledge of good writing: correct grammar, proper sentenc structure, outstanding word choice, and good logical flow. She was my assistant and I highly value her writing skills that is not often seen in today's workplac.
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.
