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.

I was referred to Kaitlin from a coworker who spoke very highly of her and the resume writing and editing services she provided. He received a promotion earlier in the year after working with Kaitlin on his resume and job application materials. I was in the process of applying for a promotion at work and felt my resume, cover letter, and supplemental questions needed some improvements. I contacted Kaitlin and she responded immediately. I had less than a week to meet the deadline to submit my application materials and Kaitlin was available to meet with me several times. I was so appreciative that she could find the time to work with me on such short notice. It was very easy to communicate with her via phone, Skype, and email while we worked on the editing process remotely. I had a very pleasant experience working with Kaitlin. She is very professional, easy to work with, has great writing and editing skills, and will provide you with wonderful guidance throughout the entire process. Kaitlin also provided me with the confidence to do well in the interview process. After reviewing past job experiences in detail and working on a few writing assignments Kaitlin assigned, I was able to identify what I should highlight during my interviews. I walked out of both interviews feeling very confident in myself. After going through the interview process I received great news that I received the promotion! There is no doubt in my mind that a big part of being promoted was due to Kaitlin’s help! I couldn’t have done it without her. I highly recommend Kaitlin’s writing and editorial consulting services to anyone looking for help with their resume and job application materials.

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.

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.

Excellent! Gifted Geek has full command of the English language. I am a university student and used ESL and Editing services at Gifted Geek. First, I used the service of editing for a 3000 word thesis. I focused the thesis on children's advocacy in shelters. Gifted Geek, charged the best price on the market. There are three packages to choose from which are all the best prices. I decided to get the most out of the service because I wanted the job done with an extra set of eyes on everything including proofreading, copyediting, and content editing. I got exceptional results. My final result is an "A" on the thesis. To better my English, I decided to take ESL on line with Gifted Geek. I am excited to move to the next stage in life. I recommend Gifted Geek, they can get the job done!
