Dear Joyee, This is to let you know how pleased we are with the results of your academic coaching and tutoring for our son, Adam. His college ACT score increased by 9 points – a 50% increase! It is clear that your skills and knowledge of this critical process were the keys to his success. These included focus on not only test content and homework assistance, but also on building a positive personal relationship with him to establish his trust and confidence, developing strategies for how to take the test, sharing details about the many colleges available, and counseling him on the admission process. As a result of your guidance, Adam has already been accepted at many of the colleges he applied to! We highly recommend Thinque Prep to anyone! Thank you for your excellent service, Jeanne and Tom Bean

I have been pondering in my ❤ for over twenty years to take a chance with my writing of songs and pomes. When I finally decide to take a chance on my maniusripts, I found the right person for me. I finally decide to take a chance and spend some money. Not so much for speeding the money, it was my pride. If you want something done, then do it. Thankyou Melanie, we need you. Jesus Christ will never let us down.

Karen is amazing! She encouraged me to think harder about what I was writing, and pushed me to create my best writing. Most importantly, Karen helped my voice shine through in my essays. She was wonderful to work with, and she always got edits back to me quickly. Her comments and suggestions were very intelligent and got me to really think about what message I was conveying in my writing. I wish I could go through the college application process again just to work with Karen a second time!!

Took my slightly above average academic background and limited professional experience and turned me into a rockstar on paper. Frankly, my resume has boosted my self-esteem and confidence to such a degree that my performance and composure in job interviews has earned high praise from three interviewers. And the cover letter accompanying the resume? A masterpiece. Actually had to make it a little less perfect since I had to finally sign it :). Oh, I got interviews with12 out of 14 firms I submitted my resume/cover letter to (before I had gotten exactly zero). I got offers from 4 of the 12 and am working happily at one now. Best decision I made for myself and my career.

About

I was asked to remain at a local elementary school even after the teacher I was subbing for returned. With district H R approval, I was asked to take over that class while the teacher on extended leave was asked to do assessment testing for multiple grades upon her return..This was a huge compliment to me and my abilities to create "a sense of community" for the students who had multiple subs and loss of continuity and progress.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How do you hire a good grant writer?

    Grants are available to nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses that qualify for government grants, and individuals who qualify for foundation or government grants. Hiring a good grant writer can help you gain funding in your chosen field. According to the American Grant Writers’ Association, grant writers can help you research potential grant opportunities; write grant proposals, create budgets, and build budget narratives; review written materials before you submit; prepare a business plan; analyze your organization for grant competitive qualities; prepare research grants; help with 501(c)(3) applications for nonprofits; and more. Investing in the right grant writer could result in a financial win for your organization. Generally no licenses or certificates are required to be a good grant writer, but you may want to find a grant writer who has been certified (not just received a certificate of completion) by a reputable organization such as the Grant Professionals Certification Institute. Qualities to look for in a good grant writer include:

    • Proven success writing winning grants, especially in your target area.
    • Strong writing skills.
    • Strong math skills and demonstrated proficiency with budgeting.
    • Careful attention to detail — brilliant grant proposals may be rejected just for formatting errors, so you want someone who follows instructions explicitly.
    • Expertise in your target area.
    • Punctuality and good communication skills.

    How much does a grant writer cost?

    Hiring a grant writer can give you a competitive edge when applying for financial grants for your business or nonprofit organization, or as an individual. The cost to hire a grant writer can vary depending on their academic background, areas of expertise, previous grant writing success and years of experience. According to the Grant Professionals Association, grant writers should be paid hourly or by flat fee. It is unethical for a grant writer to accept a commission or percentage compensation of grant monies received. They can, however, be awarded bonuses in line with the hiring company’s prevailing practices. Here are some examples of average grant writing fees:

    • Hourly rate for grant writers with less experience or fewer grants awarded: $25-$35 per hour.
    • Hourly rate for grant writers with some degree of success: $35-$75 per hour.
    • Hourly rate for grant writers with proven success winning large grants: $75-$150 or more per hour.
    • For a smaller grant, the writer may charge a flat fee of $200-$500 for preparation and submission.  

    Pricing may also vary based on the complexity of the grant application. A federal grant that requires pages of research, budgets and a business plan may take more than 30 hours to prepare. For a high-level grant writer who charges $100 per hour, this means $3,000 or more in grant writing fees.

    Most grant writers will provide you with a total cost estimate before agreeing to the work. You may be required to pay a deposit up front, or the grant writer may work from a retainer. Often, seasoned grant writers pay for themselves in the long run by writing successful grants.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
