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
Laura has written several letters, proposals and speeches for our Congregation, and we have received very positive responses. She is succinct, clear and creative in her writing and editing. I would rate her work Outstanding.
Textrous was responsive and even checking in with me more than I checked in with her. She gave great comments and formatting tips. I was very thankful to have Textrous editing my thesis (APA format) through my own stress.
Jeff is super helpful and strait forward advisor. He gave me both detailed editing and general directional suggestion for my Thesis paper. Highly recommended! =D
I have been working on my book for almost five years. Finally I have it at a place ready for editing. Samantha is currently working on my drafts. She is nice person who actually wants to help. She is not in the project just because its a job. I feel like she actually is interested in my work. I did not just want to hire a mechanical editor who plops out my work without caring. Samantha is someone that I feel cares and wants to actually help. She is a good pick.
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
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.
I was referred to Kaitlin from a coworker who spoke very highly of her and the resume writing and editing services she provided. He received a promotion earlier in the year after working with Kaitlin on his resume and job application materials. I was in the process of applying for a promotion at work and felt my resume, cover letter, and supplemental questions needed some improvements. I contacted Kaitlin and she responded immediately. I had less than a week to meet the deadline to submit my application materials and Kaitlin was available to meet with me several times. I was so appreciative that she could find the time to work with me on such short notice. It was very easy to communicate with her via phone, Skype, and email while we worked on the editing process remotely. I had a very pleasant experience working with Kaitlin. She is very professional, easy to work with, has great writing and editing skills, and will provide you with wonderful guidance throughout the entire process. Kaitlin also provided me with the confidence to do well in the interview process. After reviewing past job experiences in detail and working on a few writing assignments Kaitlin assigned, I was able to identify what I should highlight during my interviews. I walked out of both interviews feeling very confident in myself. After going through the interview process I received great news that I received the promotion! There is no doubt in my mind that a big part of being promoted was due to Kaitlin’s help! I couldn’t have done it without her. I highly recommend Kaitlin’s writing and editorial consulting services to anyone looking for help with their resume and job application materials.
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.
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.
Darya tutored and advised me throughout my senior year of high school and my first year at college. Having Darya by my side throughout the stress of a year and a half journey has had a significant impact in my life. Although Darya's main responsibility was to tutor me for my Advanced Placement (AP) Literature class, she went above and beyond to what I expected of an English tutor. She helped me find my inner voice as a writer through tutoring me about grammar, organization, and vocabulary. She also helped boost my confidence as an underprivileged Latina studying in the STEM field as a computer science major at the University of California: Santa Cruz. I passed both my AP Government and AP Literature classes and tests which is significant because both required a heavy amount of analytical writing; I graduated high school with honors and with the highest cumulative grade point average (GPA), 3.7, at any time of my academic career. One week before I was going to take my SAT for the third time, I mentioned to Darya that I was struggling understanding a large portion of the Math section of the test. To my surprise, she was thoroughly capable skilled in tutoring me in math, along with English. In less than seven days, Darya was able to successfully prepare me for my last SAT test; subsequently, my SAT score improved by more than 100 points. If we had more time to go through the preparation book, I could have further surpassed this amazing progress. Another aspect in which Darya supported me in my college application and preparation process was in guiding me to refine my college essays for both private and public universities: as a result, I was accepted to more than half of the colleges that I applied to. Finally, I am most grateful for Darya and her efforts towards my success because of the high number of scholarships that I received in the second semester of my senior year in high school. Through Darya’s excellent editing and writing abilities, I was able to accumulate more than $200,000 in scholarship rewards from four different organizations. I could never have imagined this much triumph before meeting Darya; without these scholarship awards, I would have been forced to work during my breaks and during school to afford a college education. Now, all that I have to worry about is learning as much as I can while I am at UCSC. On account of my strong achievements in less than a year with Darya, I still utilize the many tips and lessons that she has instilled in me. As a result of this, I excelled in my classes at UCSC with a cumulative GPA of 3.6. Because of my outstanding academic success in the first quarter of college, I was exclusively invited by the university to apply to the College Scholars Program; this two-year program selects 20 students out of about 200 students applying from each college at UCSC to help give them meaningful academic challenges. Not only do I recognize Darya as one of the most significant people in my life because of my solid academic accomplishments, but also due to the genuine passion she holds to be sure that her tutees succeed. As her tutee, she constantly reminded me of my own abilities to encourage my confidence. We are still in contact today which further demonstrates her enthusiasm for her tutees. She is evidently benevolent, motivated, and intelligent, and I highly recommend her tutoring and guidance talents to any student who is fortunate enough to be her tutee.
I have received many comments and emails complimenting my writing skills which I attribute directly to working with Dr. Steinberger.
Jeffrey is a very accomplished scholar and talented lecturer and tutor. He is attentive to students' needs, genuinely concerned about their development, and invests and unusual level of effort in producing his lessons and lectures. He has a broad range of experience to offer in all types of writing, from professional documents to academic essays. His command of the language and his extensive knowledge of its use and its history give him a particularly nuanced approach to both writing and editing.
Olga helped my team to write, edit and finalize a great online schedule, and an orientation program for our International students program. Her attention to detail, ways of phrasing and insightful ideas and corrections were right on. It gave us clear, useful and non-confusing materials to send to our students. Thank you, Olga!
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 have used her editing services many times. She is professional, efficient, and knows her trade well. I would use her services again without hesitation.

I offered editing and writing services of many kinds, including to published authors, students, and people needing web content.
Welcome to my content driven world...an exploration into the vastness of good content. Each time I write, be it for myself, for another company or when it comes to curating a simple message, I try to push the limit of what the words can do. I like to refer to myself as a contentpreneur because I love to find never before used word combinations that have the potential of being the next viral catch phrase. It's what makes me excited to work with content in any capacity. When it comes to writing about a new topic, I go at it head on. There is no territory I fear to tread on when it comes to writing. I feel confident that I can write creatively, intelligently and simply about any topic or subject. I came across a quote recently that read, "The things you are passionate about are not random. They are your calling." Content, writing and copy editing, I strongly believe, are my calling. I am out to make an editorial difference.
