Lois is a wonderful tutor. As soon as she heard me talking she knew exactly what was it that I needed to train my English in order to take it to the next level. Highly recommendable to those who have an advanced level of English, because she is really precise and you get to learn a lot of history on the language. It is very enjoyable and it makes sense. If you need ESL, she's the one! She is also a writer, producer and acting coach, therefore she's also super creative and helpful when it comes to having to work out some text.

You are an amazing writer as if heaven had sent an angel to write me but where were you back in 2002? All my doors are wide open for you anytime into the future. Thank you again Guitta. From your friend aways. Johnny

Skip is an amazing person who is very helpful. He has been helping me get my screenwriting career off the ground and he has been so much help. He’s done things that most writers wouldn’t do. I appreciate everything he had done and I would recommend him to anyone.

Mauri is a very good tutor for my two kids. She is currently tutoring my son (5th grader) and my daughter (3rd grader) with writing. They both learn a lot from her and she is very encouraging and helping them to write more effectively.

Daniel has been terrific with my third grade son, who is a resistant writer. During their lessons, I've been watching my boy cross over from writing the bare minimum to discovering the joy of creative writing. Such a treat!

Tanya was swift, thorough, and insightful. She has a natural proclivity for ferreting out issues for clarity sake, and provides creative solutions along the way. I count her as a close colleague on all my writing projects. Her editing is astute, her professionalism is consummate, and her passion is extraordinary.

Celia Pool has edited a few of my novels, and done a fabulous job. Taking her time, she has not only corrected my grammar, but has also made invaluable suggestions on some of my wording. She has also been fair when objecting to writings that she felt were not up to par with my better material.

As a special writer journalist, I'm well acquainted with the term "checks all the boxes." Well, see above. That's exactly what I've done. As my website project manager, everything you could hope for is contained in those boxes above. And as someone who is a tad tech challenged, having Jen at PhantomPower on the job gave me the added benefit of getting a good night's sleep. Can't say enough good things...

Trish is a wonderful editor! Her editing of my memoir manuscript is impeccable. Her skills far exceeded my expectations. She's good at what she does, and is sensitive to my "baby." As a writer, that is important to me. Her suggestions for making changes are spot on. I highly recommend her for any and all editing and writing services!

    I don't even know where to begin in telling you just how highly I recommend Tracy. As a first time author, it was a bit daunting to interview editors and select one. But I had 5 key-words in mind regarding how I wanted to feel while working with an editor, and when I spoke to Tracy, she fit them all. Those words were: Wisdom, Trust, Support, Joy, and Ease. So I hired her for a developmental edit, and I am so happy I did. In addition to being a skilled editor (and writer), I was impressed by her availability and her willingness to answer my ridiculously long list of questions that I sent over along with my manuscript! Tracy not only did the job I hired her to do in terms of a developmental edit, but she also helped me believe in myself as a writer and provided some major hand-holding during some stressful times in this process. Speaking of the stresses, I had already hired another editor for the copy/line edit, but I ended up going back to Tracy for that as well! I really wanted someone who would make my "already good" writing even *better*. And Tracy did just that. It was just a pleasure to work with her, and there were many times that her answers to my questions made me laugh or her line edits made me cry (because they were so good!). I feel much more confident about putting my first book, "The Multi-Orgasmic Diet," out into the world now, thanks to Tracy's beautiful edits and helpful guidance! So if you want someone with experience, skill, attention to detail, and who will truly care about your finished product, I highly recommend Tracy Teel.

    When I first met Rachelle, I knew nothing about writing, but she made a published writer of me, helping me find my voice and teaching me the writing craft in a supportive, nurturing environment with constructive, positive feedback. Rachelle is an excellent teacher and her editing skills are unmatched.

      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.
