Dr. Kovan was an absolute amazing editor who was very professional but also very friendly. Dr. Kovan was easy to work with and talk to. I was always able to get in touch with her and develop a plan for the editing of my dissertation. Dr. Kovan was very flexible with my deadlines even when I asked for some extremely quick turn edits of my dissertation. Dr. Kovan is an expert in APA formatting as well as scholarly writing. I plan to use Dr. Kovan for all my future published papers, resumes, and scholarly writing. Dr. Kovan is top notch, professional, detailed, and someone you can talk to. She is the editor you want to choose. Andrew Clayton Doctoral Candidate

Textrous was responsive and even checking in with me more than I checked in with her. She gave great comments and formatting tips. I was very thankful to have Textrous editing my thesis (APA format) through my own stress.

I am a non native English speaker. I was struggling with my comprehensive (thesis) paper. Laura helped me brain storm ideas for my paper, gave me constructive feedback, and helped me edit the paper. She spent a lot of one on one time with me and constantly stayed in touch with me. Laura is very caring and genuine and it shows in her work. She wasn't quite familiar with my topic (I am in healthcare), but she went above and beyond trying to understand what I was writing about so that she could help me best way possible. She is a great editor and a very sincere person. I am graduating this June and I may not need her help for academic papers, but I will always come to her for any writing and editing help. I will recommend her to everyone!

I have been working on my book for almost five years. Finally I have it at a place ready for editing. Samantha is currently working on my drafts. She is nice person who actually wants to help. She is not in the project just because its a job. I feel like she actually is interested in my work. I did not just want to hire a mechanical editor who plops out my work without caring. Samantha is someone that I feel cares and wants to actually help. She is a good pick.

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.

Darya tutored and advised me throughout my senior year of high school and my first year at college. Having Darya by my side throughout the stress of a year and a half journey has had a significant impact in my life. Although Darya's main responsibility was to tutor me for my Advanced Placement (AP) Literature class, she went above and beyond to what I expected of an English tutor. She helped me find my inner voice as a writer through tutoring me about grammar, organization, and vocabulary. She also helped boost my confidence as an underprivileged Latina studying in the STEM field as a computer science major at the University of California: Santa Cruz. I passed both my AP Government and AP Literature classes and tests which is significant because both required a heavy amount of analytical writing; I graduated high school with honors and with the highest cumulative grade point average (GPA), 3.7, at any time of my academic career. One week before I was going to take my SAT for the third time, I mentioned to Darya that I was struggling understanding a large portion of the Math section of the test. To my surprise, she was thoroughly capable skilled in tutoring me in math, along with English. In less than seven days, Darya was able to successfully prepare me for my last SAT test; subsequently, my SAT score improved by more than 100 points. If we had more time to go through the preparation book, I could have further surpassed this amazing progress. Another aspect in which Darya supported me in my college application and preparation process was in guiding me to refine my college essays for both private and public universities: as a result, I was accepted to more than half of the colleges that I applied to. Finally, I am most grateful for Darya and her efforts towards my success because of the high number of scholarships that I received in the second semester of my senior year in high school. Through Darya’s excellent editing and writing abilities, I was able to accumulate more than $200,000 in scholarship rewards from four different organizations. I could never have imagined this much triumph before meeting Darya; without these scholarship awards, I would have been forced to work during my breaks and during school to afford a college education. Now, all that I have to worry about is learning as much as I can while I am at UCSC. On account of my strong achievements in less than a year with Darya, I still utilize the many tips and lessons that she has instilled in me. As a result of this, I excelled in my classes at UCSC with a cumulative GPA of 3.6. Because of my outstanding academic success in the first quarter of college, I was exclusively invited by the university to apply to the College Scholars Program; this two-year program selects 20 students out of about 200 students applying from each college at UCSC to help give them meaningful academic challenges. Not only do I recognize Darya as one of the most significant people in my life because of my solid academic accomplishments, but also due to the genuine passion she holds to be sure that her tutees succeed. As her tutee, she constantly reminded me of my own abilities to encourage my confidence. We are still in contact today which further demonstrates her enthusiasm for her tutees. She is evidently benevolent, motivated, and intelligent, and I highly recommend her tutoring and guidance talents to any student who is fortunate enough to be her tutee.

I have twins in high school and they both really enjoy working with Scott. They learned so much in the initial "Writing Basics 101" with Scott, and now they work via email with him on various assignments. Scott is meticulous. Rather than sending quick edits on the writing samples, Scott responds with detailed explanations. He also checks in with me on their progress.

Julian Esteban Torres Lopez responded to my query promptly and with professionalism. I'm an English teacher (secondary language arts), and wanted another set of eyes on a large project. His experience in the private sector and also his education made him a good fit for my editing needs.

Kristen was excellent in every way. Her editing suggestions were all very helpful. By the way, this block of your form was almost invisible to me. I didn't even know it was here, until "Submit Review" wouldn't work for me, and I searched for the reason why. This part of the form appeared very faintly, the text in it was illegible because it was so faint.

Jeffrey provided editing services to our biopharmaceutical company assisting with position profiles and our recruiting/sourcing process. He adeptly edited both marketing and technical writing, thereby greatly enhancing our profile and appeal to new and critical talent. His writing and editing skills are second to none as is his turnaround on time sensitive material. He provided precisely what we did not have the time to complete. Thank you Jeffrey.

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!

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.

Sally is the consummate professional. She is extremely detailed-oriented, sensitive to the client's needs, always thoughtful regarding the budget and the deadlines, and the kind of team player that you want on your project. She has superior writing, editing and proofing skills, along with all of her marketing communications talents. She is culturally, socially and technologically aware, and stays focused on presenting a superior product. I have worked with Sally on several projects over many years, and can honestly say that each time the end result is far better with her being a part of it.
