Rebecca has been more than professional. The resume and cover letter she created has simply amazing. Her use of the industry language (field of Education) and application of my skills to my real-life application, more than exceeded my expectations. She's been easy to reach and promptly replied to my emails and phone calls. She took the time to get to me and my current career goals. She's went above and beyond to reply to me during her vacation, when I was in panic mode about a last minute interview!! I've so pleased with her work that I will refer her to anyone seeking resume/cover letter assistance and am planning to retain her services to help with writing my book. I look forward to our continued work together. Couldn't be happier! Veronica Joy Didelot, M.S.Ed.

Colleen's edits were instrumental in getting my two books published. Her line editing refined my sentence structure, phrasing, and cadence, and I now think twice before using the same word in a paragraph. When it came to characterization and plot she respected my choices, but made observations and asked questions that helped me write a book that would connect with readers. She was a pleasure to work with, friendly and responsive, and I look forward to working with her again.

I am a writing tutor. Sharon took over for me when I had a scheduling conflict with one of my college students. This student has multiple learning challenges in both reading comprehension and in writing. I despaired of finding a tutor who could handle the situation. Sharon stepped in and performed admirably. After one meeting, she had pinpointed the many difficulties of my student. She then took copious notes and built on my suggestions, prescribing a multi-pronged tutoring approach. It worked! The student received a B for the course and was thrilled. I whole-heartedly recommend Sharon. She is conscientious, hard-working, flexible, and creative. Most of all she is kind, patient, and extremely respectful toward her learners (and she has a great sense of humor!) She works well with parents and is able to design a program that fits each student's needs. Kudos to an outstanding fellow tutor!
