I would recommend John to anyone who needs help with their resume and cover letter. He is awesome!! I wrote my resume and cover letter but I felt like I needed a profession to edit it before I apply for any job. Therefore, I asked John for help. Since I wanted to apply for a position which has been posted for over two weeks, I didn't have that much time. I asked John for help and he responded quickly to my quote and worked with me. He took some time to interview me regarding my background to have better understanding about me. Also, he is always reachable and asked me questions about my experience, so he has the correct info to add to my resume. With his help, I got several calls for interview. To get into the interview process is my goal, so I am really glad to choose John as editor!

Due to my diminishing knowledge of English grammar, I searched the Internet for an editor to help navigate the murky byways of periods, commas, verb endings and sentence structure. Thankfully I came upon Steve Dulas, a former copy editor for a local county newspaper in the San Francisco Bay area. I couldn't be more pleased with Steve’s work. Not only does he have a lifetime career in editing and turning out “clean” copy, but I found he also carefully reads for content and offers creative and sometimes just common sense advice to look at vague or weak areas so that the narrative flows and is coherent. This advice is always given as a kind suggestion; Steve is never demeaning or heavy handed. Steve reviewed half of my book (45,000 words) in a timely two week period, sending me one copy with the changes and yet another copy with creative thoughts in specific places. It really was an outstanding job. I can happily give Steve a five star reference and am certain anyone would be as pleased as I was to find him. I plan to use him again.

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!

About

Hello! I recently finished a non-fiction memoir entitled "Pariah Down" and graduated from St. Mary's College of California with an MFA in Creative Writing. The methodologies I studied in grad school enabled me to think analytically about writing, how to craft and perfect the essay form, practice simple editing techniques as well as consider more conceptual, "big picture" editing. I have several years of tutoring experience with writers and students of all ages and can assist you with your basic and/or more advanced literary needs.

I welcome your tough questions and inspired visions.

About

I offer personalized tutoring session, concentrating in algebra and mathematics. I understand that students learn in different ways and at different paces, so I believe it is essential to find what works best for the student to make the sessions less stressful and more worthwhile. It is very rewarding to see a student solve very difficult mathematics problems all on their own. I have tutored in the past for O.A.S.E.S. (Oakland Asian Student Educational Services), an after school program at Lincoln Elementary assisting children on numerous subjects. Every week I would help a group of four students with homework, reading, mathematics, and other school subjects. I love tutoring but it is not my profession, so my prices are reasonable.
