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!

I have been a longtime user of Thumbtack for a variety of things (DJ's, Home Improvement, etc.) and recently I've started using it for editing. At first I was skeptical about how it would go, but after working with Peculiar Sightings, all my doubts have completely been erased. The entire experience was excellent and I am extremely satisfied. Peculiar Sightings was able to help me a great amount on not only proofreading and editing my paper, but also helping me with the developmental and structural aspects of it. I am looking forward to working with her in the future.
