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! :)

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.

Kaitlin was my writing tutor for my college essays. She was very helpful throughout the process. The thing I liked most about working with Kaitlin was she gave me the freedom to devise my own ideas and writing tactics for the essays while she refined and perfected them. Kaitlin not only aided me in constructing well written essays, but also helped me become a better creative writer and learn advanced grammar rules that I could apply to my writing and standardized testing such as the SAT and ACT. She was very helpful and easy to work with.

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.

I have twins in high school and they both really enjoy working with Scott. They learned so much in the initial "Writing Basics 101" with Scott, and now they work via email with him on various assignments. Scott is meticulous. Rather than sending quick edits on the writing samples, Scott responds with detailed explanations. He also checks in with me on their progress.

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.

Jacquie is great. Having her available during my job search made the process so much less stressful. She helped edit my resume, condense and streamline my cover letter, connected me to people she knew in the industry, wrote referral letters and gathered useful feedback regarding my applications. She has a ton of insight and wisdom on how to beef up your resume, how to interpret interview feedback and how to stay grounded & motivated throughout your search. Working with her felt like having a cheerleader, editor, mentor and agent rolled into one awesome package, and I would absolutely recommend that anyone looking to switch jobs, enter the workforce or change careers utilize her services.
