Lisa is very methodical and meticulous when it comes to preparing a technical resume. In my field of telecommunications that involves public safety Lisa was able to grasp my experience and convey it to paper. I am very pleased with Lisa's professionalism and experience with her resume writing skills.
Carl is an engaging tutor. He challenged my 12 year old to think more deeply about what she reads and he sharpened her writing skills. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
Lois is the most helpful teacher/mentor I have ever had the opportunity to work with. She is flexible about times and has helped me with many different writing and speaking projects. Lois has vast experience in many areas and knows how to make projects and learning enjoyable. She is willing to share her knowledge and insight.

Chris O’Toole took on the Sisyphean task of: 1) proofreading; 2) providing a general critique: and 3) giving insight on whether and how to move forward on my draft play and associated essay. Mr. O’Toole use the yellow highlighter feature in Word to show his proofreading suggestions. I am still finding grammatical and word choice errors. This may well be because—due to my limited eye-sight— I didn’t see all his yellow highlights in making my corrections. He provided a general, dip-lomatic, thoughtful critique of the play’s subject matter; use of metaphors, poetry, and language; and connection with a reader or an audience. In making and evaluating my decision to hire an editor in general and Mr. O’Toole specifically, I looked at five factors: 1) experience and expertise; 2) cost; 3) turn-around time; 4) interactions; and 5) quality of work. Regarding the first, while I do not know Mr. Toole’s experience with plays, his website clearly indicates significant experience in editing other forms of professional writing. I believe the quality of editors’ websites and offers of services is a good indicator of their knowledge of and skill in teaching clients like me how to connect with their readers and audiences. Regarding cost, other editors I consulted charged on an hourly or a per page basis while Mr. Toole, in this first editing interaction, offered a very reasonable flat fee. There are pluses and minuses with each ap-proach. A flat fee was best for me for the initial editing of a draft play. The third factor is crucial for most authors working on deadlines. Mr. O’Toole sent me his edits and critique within two weeks. A second editor I contacted told me she could not get to my draft until January. Fourth, ed-iting is a collaborative enterprise: an editor needs to know the writer’s audience, intent, focus, and voice to help that author create his or her best work. Mr. O’Toole gave me feedback and questions on the writing sample I originally sent him. He sent me a follow-up email—with a targeted ques-tion--while editing my manuscript. Overall, I am happy with the initial editing efforts Mr. O’Toole gave me: professional; cost-effective; timely; and interactive. I am still rolling around the four page, shiny, rock critique he also gave me: gold or dross; foundational, aspirational, or weighing down: moving the draft higher or back into an inky sea? Whatever it ultimately is, he initiated a thought provoking internal and external conversation for/with a novice playwright just as my response here illustrates the meta-phorical challenges Mr. O’Toole confronted in critiquing and advising me on my writing.
Robert was on it from the time I requested help from Thumbtack. He is quick fast and efficient. I will hire Robert to assist me anytime I have editing or professional paper writing needs! Thanks again Robert.
I have been pondering in my ❤ for over twenty years to take a chance with my writing of songs and pomes. When I finally decide to take a chance on my maniusripts, I found the right person for me. I finally decide to take a chance and spend some money. Not so much for speeding the money, it was my pride. If you want something done, then do it. Thankyou Melanie, we need you. Jesus Christ will never let us down.
I chose Guitta to help me with my resume and cover letter. Her writing skills are excellent. She contacted me by phone, email and text to clarify information which I appreciated. I sincerely appreciated her help and will definitely will use her services in the future.
Skip and I have worked together many times over the last ten or so years. At first I was a student and he mentored for a long time, he was always honest, never sugar coated criticism and at the same didn't make me feel bad or self conscious about my writing. We became partners in a few projects and when I began to teach at the University of Colorado, Skip was always willing to help my students. Skip is an honorable, generous to a fault man, and he has my complete trust.
Writing is hard. Period. Always. Never not. But it so much easier with Cynthia on your side. She knows how words work and, more importantly, why scripts don't. If you're having a hard time writing something or anything or nothing, do what I do. Call Cynthia.
I worked with Kate on a magazine piece that she helped edit. She has an exceptional flair for writing that's matched by her people skills. She is a natural educator and has great rapport with kids - I'd trust her with any subject!
Helped me with writing my resume and she did it in a timely manner. Def worth the price for what I was charged for
Brad prepared a quality resume & cover letter for me. We met at his office and spent close to an hour learning about my sales background and what I wanted to achieve in a job. I even referred a friend who hired him based on my suggestion. Upon my initial resume I never asked for a re-write till now. I wasn't receiving any responses on the positions I applied for. Brad went out of his way to work with me on some re-write adjustments and now I feel 100% more confident. I strongly recommend his services.
Cindy and everyone at Rainbow tutoring are some of the kindest individuals I have met. The wisdom Cindy bestowed on me while helping me through my college application process will be with my forever and I am so grateful. Cindy helped me figure out what I wanted in my college experience and gave me the tools to get myself there. She introduced schools that I wouldn't have seen myself at and helped me get myself to Santa Clara University. She is beyond inspirational and such an empowering woman that is a role model to any and all of her clients. Cindy and her team are smart, dedicated, and reliable- they are always able to help and are great mentors to have before going off out of high school and into a college or real life environment. Cindy especially is very clear and really walks you through the steps to understanding in both Math, Writing, and the SAT Prep. I am so thankful to have met and able to work with you guys !
Celia is highly skilled and has strong instincts for improving writing clarity. I was impressed by her responsiveness, flexibility, and response time given the complexity of the assignment. She obviously cares about her clients and is willing to go the extra mile to help sharpen writing to convey exactly what you need it to. I highly recommend Celia Pool.
I called upon Laura to completely re-do my entire web site and create a new design (look and feel) including writing and editing all the copy. It was a sizable job. She was very patient with me I should I add! She did an outstanding and highly professional job. Without any hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Laura to anyone looking for web site development, copy design, social media marketing campaign and brand imaging. She delivers the whole package... I'm very pleased, and so will you be as well.
Heather has been fantastic and insightful - I'm so very happy I've hired Heather.

Lisa-Beth revised my resume and cover letter. She did an excellent job focusing my intent while my maintaining my own voice through the writing.
Chris has edited my blogs, speeches, and writings for over two years. He also handles all of my social media. I couldn't have accomplished what I have without him. He is my eyes and ears for publications and social media. -- Patty Alper (www.teachtowork.com)
