I highly recommend Sharon Turnoy to do work that is fast, that is accurate, and that goes beyond your expectations .I hired Sharon to help me with something I thought would be only a little proofreading assignment. I was working on a research project about Classical Music of the 20th Century and hired her to proofread it. At the last minute, I realized I wasn't going to be able to meet my very tight deadline on the research itself, so I didn't have everything done yet for her to proofread. I asked her if she could possibly help me with some of the research because I was in a bind. Even though she had something else planned during that time, she canceled her plans and said yes. Her help was invaluable. First, she figured out a faster way to do the research than I had come up with so that I could meet my short deadline. Then, not only did she supply that new research, but she also went beyond just proofreading the research I had done (spelling, grammar, etc.) and checked it for accuracy, too. It's a good thing she did. She found and corrected numerous errors. With the errors she corrected and the new research she supplied, she easily raised my grade on this project from a "D" or an "F" to an "A." And all of this was done well within my deadline. In fact, she put in extra time over and above what she had originally committed to, foregoing her own plans, so I would have an excellent project to submit. I recommend her without reservation and would welcome the opportunity to work with her again.

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.

I am currently a special education teacher looking to move into an administrative position. Leanne was a huge resource with assisting in locating resume examples and educating me on what a professional resume should entail. She proofread my current resume and gave me constructive feedback on how to present myself for my desired job. She read and provided feedback for job cover letters, especially highlighting appropriate experience for each job I was applying for. She was highly professional, kind, and highly effective with coaching me in regards to my resume. I highly recommend her and Communication Coaching to anyone in need of building a resume and all other services! She is a great person to work with and I will always refer her when someone is in need of coaching for public speaking, editing of professional documents, and or advice on advancing careers.

Emma is great. I've used her for cover letters, resumes, and essays. She gives prompt editing feedback that clues you in on where you need to think more about what you've written. She also knows a lot about mechanics and can help you produce a clean written work. High

I was impressed with Ann's proofreading and editing service provided at very short notice. I was impressed by her calm and non-nonsense approach. I particularly liked the way she was so efficient with time and returned my work in the agreed time frame. I also appreciated how easy it was to talk with her on phone to explain and discuss my needs. This made me feel confident in her ability. Thank you Ann, for your time and effort. I really appreciated your energy.

Andrew has a keen eye and a comprehensive knowledge of grammar and writing rules. We turned to him many times to review sales documents, advertisements, and marketing collateral. Andrew is easy to communicate with, and is able to prioritize and focus on projects to meet deadlines. Andrew’s vocabulary is excellent and he is a clear and concise writer. Our department would seek his assistance on a regular basis.

Ruth was an invaluable resource proofreading and editing my latest writing project. She is smart, listens well, and patient. The quality of her work is excellent, she is professional, responsive, and turned things around for me when promised (ahead of schedule, actually). She was a calming influence and an excellent sounding board as I discussed ideas with her. I would, without reservation, recommend her to others.
