Dr. Berman helped me with the editing of my dissertation in the field of comparative literature and he did an excellent job. He went far and beyond to meet my deadlines and fulfill my professor's and advisor's wishes! He as very detail-oriented, very attentive and improved my dissertation greatly. In his email conversations, he always made sure he knew what the goal and result is supposed to be. It was wonderful to work with such a great editor! I would recommend him highly!

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!
