This started out very business like but ended feeling very personal. I appreciated her gentle, yet very honest, critique. My main request of wanting to know exactly what I needed to improve on when I begin writing my other book, and she wonderfully complied.

Jeremy is an excellent teacher. My daughter has benefited in more ways than I can count because of Jeremy. She has become more organized and is learning an advanced curriculum in both math and writing. He is a dedicated teacher and always makes sure my child's learning comes first. Now, instead of arguing with her to study for exams, she does so without hesitation. He gives me a summary of every lesson and explains what my daughter has been learning and what she can improve on. Overall, Jeremy is a excellent role model and plays a pivotal role in my daughter's life. I won't hesitate to hire him again for my second daughter if needed.

Laura is an exceptional tutor. She is highly patient and utilizes various learning modalities to help a student absorb and retain the Spanish language. Her methods work on comprehension, reading, writing and speaking. She spends time working on the diction and pronunciation of words. She customizes the lessons to your individual learning needs. Laura is also working on fine tuning some bad habits that I picked up over the years which is helping me re-learn the proper usage of the language. It is a process yet she will make it fun and engaging.

David Tabatsky is one of those rare individuals in modern day publishing who consistently shines in all three of the industry's most fundamental criteria: writing, editing and administrative skills. He would be an asset to any organization seeking someone whose love of words is matched only by his proficiency at putting them together.

Absolutely wonderful! Iyanna was very professional and worked in a timely manner. She took my resume as well as an essay of mine and transformed them into professionally written pieces that emphasized my past accomplishments, experience , and highlighted who I was as a person. She is clearly a skilled writer and has a way with words. Iyanna Also demonstrated great communication skills, communicating with me throughout the entire process and quickly getting both the essay and resume back to me. I would gladly recommend her to anyone looking for a skilled quality writer.

Dr. Mansur helped me achieve a goal that I thought was impossible. She was very responsive to all of my needs and questions. She met with me via Zoom to help answer any questions and to clear up any misunderstandings I had about my work. She never hesitated to answer a question and she was always positive and encouraged me to be the best that I could be. Dr. Mansur was also very knowledgeable about how to complete a dissertation and gave suggestions on what was needed to improve my writing. I would recommend anyone to give Dr Mansur an opportunity to make your dissertation writing less stressful and easier. Dr. Wintter Samuel

Gladys got back to me right away, communicated well, explained everything to me up front. She re-did a resume for me and completed the work in a timely manner. I had originally contacted her a while ago and at the time she was running a promotion. She honored that price even though the promotion is now over.

I used Professor Korn for assisting me with various writing assignments. He does great work and I received 90+ on all my assignments but his prices are a little expensive. I rated him good because his prices are high but his work is excellent. I would use again if he lowers his prices.

Danaya was a very good tutor. She helped me with my writing making it stronger, grammatically correct and legible for the reader to understand. She took her time with me, especially when I found myself getting frustrated, but her calming energy helped shift the mood as we found many different ways to help make the information easier for me to understand.

I found Amanda as a tutor on an online platform about a year ago and I needed help with my writing skills in school. I need essay writing help as well as general assignment support. Through working with Amanda my grade went up and I have become a much stronger reader and writer. (Her motto: "Every good writer is a voracious reader" is so true) I actually learned to love reading more after working with this tutor. Her rate was cheap enough too for my mom to be able afford lessons every week. I will be working with this tutor on my SAT prep this whole semester too and looking forward to it. Highly recommend.

Mr. Fleming copyedited a program evaluation report that was based on interviews and focus groups. He performed an outstanding job, promptly responded to my questions, offered insightful feedback and wording suggestions that made the final copy more readable. I will be using his services again.

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.
