This was the second time we hired Adam and LoHud. The comics Adam brought each were unique enough that everyone in the audience had a favorite. But it was Adams hosting that kept the show connected. He is not only a very funny comic but as the MC he engaged the audience and kept things rolling smoothly.

To whom it may concern: It is a privilege to write a personal Letter of Recommendation on behalf of my trusted colleague, Jo-D Demore, proofreader and editor. Jo-Ds unrivaled skills and ability in this area stem from her uncommon aptitude to condense advanced abstract concepts into clear, concise non-technical language. Her capacity to affect such perfect proofreading/editing changes comes from her dedication to detail while focusing on the core concepts or objectives of the document. She dedicates immense time and effort to understanding the authors concepts and objectives. This step sets her apart from others that are simply proofreading for grammar because she encompasses a larger overview to ensure materials are not just punctuated correctly, but actually flow and are understandable to potential readers without compromising the intent of the authors principle concept or argument. One of Jo-Ds specialties, and the one most pertaining to our work, is large written projects that require several revisions as the document develops to its full scope and scale. I have personally used her services over a period of several years for multiple documents consisting of hundreds of pages. As concept, and thus document content, is revised, Jo-D plays as large or small a role as required. She can micro correct for strictly proofreading requirements, and she can also macro evaluate for the larger picture about document content, structure and flow. The normal dynamic between an author and editor is one of contention but not so when working with Jo-D. Her work is exemplary, thorough and timely, and she is a real pleasure to work with. For anyone in need of proofreading or editing, she is a godsend! Sincerely, Joseph V., Ph.D.
Edited my book. Gave logical feedback and was extremely approachable.
Maria helped write and edit some of my essays and resumés. She did a wonderful job and was very professional. Her skills have really helped out and have gotten me a lot of jobs!
I've used a lot of editors over the years, and There for You Editing is wonderful. I've always received a quick turn around for my manuscripts and quality work. I highly recommend this editor.
I sent Linda my book manuscript and was amazed to see how many grammatical errors I had made while writing the book. She corrected my slang, out of date jargons, and made suggestions to correct or relocate paragraphs to other chapters. She also advised me about statements that should be altered to avoid legal action from individuals or establishments named within the chapters. My manuscript went from being an unorganized, choppy, collection of events, characters, and facts into a smooth flowing, easy to read document. The book is currently being evaluated by the editors of a major publisher which makes me very grateful to Linda and her grasp of the English language and ability to edit so perfectly.
Jeremy worked with my son for two years beginning the Summer of 2012 with Matt and reading. As a result of Jeremy's efforts, my son moved up one math level and loves to read now. I use to have to beg him to read and now he's begging I to by books!
