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! :)

My company hired Koppelman & Associates for a corporate event video. We were looking for professionalism and reliability, and Koppelman & Associates did not dissapoint. Our event took more time than anticipated, and the final video required detailed editing. Koppelman & Associates’s service throughout the process was thorough, and resulted in a great video at a very reasonable price. We will definitely use his service again.

As I was preparing to submit my statement of purpose for graduate school, I found Sharon and chose her right away. She is professional and I was impressed with her editing!!! She gave me new insights and tips on how to express and articulate myself in writing. she took my seemingly random experiences in the statement of purpose paper, polished it, and skillfully weaved it together in a way that makes sense for the graduate school!! She was prompt, extremely thorough, and sincere in her counsel. Working with Sharon was one of the best choice I made and I recommend everyone to use her for help in writing and editing papers!!!

Michael is an outstanding book editor. I've been working with him on my manuscript for the past two years. He excels in the intangibles, with terrific suggestions about improving a story's pace, character development and plot. So often when Michael suggests something, a lightbulb goes off in my head and I think: Of course! Why didn't I think of that? Beyond his uncanny ability to see where my story should be going, he also detects what's missing. This is a trait any writer wants to have in an editor--an ability to identify what needs to be added or expanded upon. Beyond his professional editing skills, Michael is consistently prompt and turns drafts around well within his promised timeframe. Michael is not only a great editor but he can, if needed, be a coach as well. He knows what his writers are going through, because he's a writer himself. He has been important to me in his coaching role, because he's helped me plow through the rough spots that are inevitable in completing something as complicated as a novel. He becomes a partner in getting the job done, and his words of encouragement and hope make all the difference.

Better writing brought to you by better editing. Editoro! doesn't pull any punches on story development, manuscript improvements and being there for the writer. Sometimes just kicking butt is the best strategy to get the character, plot, story, and yes, the writer going. They kick butt. Recommended editing services.

Kaitlin has helped formulate thoughts, essay structure, editing, and constant feedback for two of my boys during their college essay write ups. She patiently worked with the boys on their essays from start to finish. They established their needed time frame together and communicated between them when the next meeting sessions would be. They both would agree where to meet, sent emailings for editing, and skyped when we traveled during the summer. The boys felt that Kaitlin was very easy to work with, patient, and able to help draw out the needed thoughts onto paper. Kaitlin made my job as a parent during the very stressful college application process a breeze! We certainly will be utilizing Kaitlin for the next two kids for their college essays!!

Michael is an absolute wizard at providing essay help. He makes the process effortless, and surprisingly really fun and motivating. He has a unique skill to understand his students quickly and convert their experiences to meaningful stories that showcase their personality and positive characteristics. Michael's true gift is his ability to create inciting stories. I can not describe how highly I would recommend Michael for essay help. Furthermore, he was extremely professional and respectful of my time. Michael helped me write an essay for business school. He helped me with every single step of the way. We first started with idea generation where we discussed things I could potentially write about. He then helped me pin point a story to tell, and worked to show me how concrete examples highlighted the major themes that I wanted to conveys to the reader. He then helped me build a very detailed outline that was perhaps the most valuable portion of our work together. I turned an initial draft along with pages on pages of ideas. Michael helped me re-write my ideas in exactly the way I wanted to get them across to the reader. Michael then continued to edit and condense my work while not sacrificing anything from my message. Michael found a way to help me turn my initial drafts, (that was in no shape to submit) into an a really great essay that I am very proud of. In the end I could not be more happy with Michael's work. Whether it is idea generation, building an outline, editing your writing, or making an essay read and simply sound better, this is the guy to go to.

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.

Stephanie designed and developed our law firm website. She was great to work with, going above and beyond every step of the way in the work she delivered and in her communications. We are so happy with our website - she was able to take some of our business goals and problems and turn in thoughtful, well-designed solutions through web design and the copy she wrote. We’ll definitely be going with Stephanie again for any upcoming web projects.

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!
