Rebecca is very nice, detail-oriented and patient. She keeps frequent communication with me throughout the editing procedure (there is no solid deadline for my work. Nice to be notified of the progress). She is very responsive. Her editing style is more than grammar check and proofreading , it's reorganizing and rewriting (at least to my essays). She did an excellent work editing my three JD application essays. She would also ask you for feedback for her work so that she can absorb your ideas before the final proofread. Very satisfied!! Strongly recommend her!

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.

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.

Whether article writing, providing web content, publishing with WordPress, MS Word, MS LiveWriter, or Adobe Acrobat, I am experienced and can fulfill your needs.

Ms. Halper scores highly in all five categories. Her editing encompasses logic, English usage, and general organization. She leaves an option for personal preference, as in, "You may prefer to say this this way, but I would prefer that way," and leaves the final decision to the author. She works diligently; I receive her edits in a timely manner. Her cost is reasonable. I feel lucky to have found such a competent resource.

We work with our clients, big and small, on a project-by-project basis. We have a team of professionals not just an individual. Not everyone can do graphic design, branding, copy editing, writing, proofreading, website design and more. It takes a team! We are your team.

First of all you get to talk to a real human being! At H2O we believe attention to detail makes the difference for both us and you. Writing is a form of communication, whatever your type of business, the words need to be clear and precise. Errors and mistakes distract the reader and your message can be lost which could result in a lost contract, lawsuit or passing grade.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
