Mr. Mullen's attention to detail, and professionalism are unmatched. Tom is very personable, and takes a keen interest in clearly understanding the client's skill sets. My abilities, and accomplishments were clearly highlighted. Tom consistently went above and beyond, ensuring I was aware of job alerts, interview techniques, and upcoming job fairs. He, and his wife are a great resume writing team, and I am confident my cover letter/resume will open many doors.

Alice did a wonderful job editing various personal stories I have written over the years. I wanted to put them all together in one book. All this was done with great dispatch. She even had some excellent suggestions to improve the writing. No question I would highly recommend her.

So far, Sharon has been great. She is quite responsive, easy to work with, and her skills are exactly what I'm looking for in editing my manuscript. The fact that she is familiar with my genre and is flexible to work with as well, has put me at ease. I look forward to seeing her complete work and as of now, I can say that I hope to work with her on other work as well. Will update upon completion!

Kim has always been an exceptional writer. She had edited a few writing pieces for me including personal statements and essays. Her commentary has always pushed me to think outside of the box and she always found a way to help me express my thoughts eloquently. Not to mention she is very punctual and responds quickly. I will always go to her for my editing services!

I reached out to her to edit and format my resume. She editing both the text and the appearance of my resume. She made sure to conference with me about the accuracy of the information I provided as well as what aspects of my career I wished the emphasize. She completed the formatting in less than 72 hours. I did receive multiple job offers, and I am confident I could not have performed the type of formatting and editing she did for me in such a short time span.

Pete was exceptional, always delivered what I asked and went the extra mile to help me get what I wanted, what I needed, and what I didn't even know I needed. The cost was totally fair and worth every penny. If you need someone to create an MSWord template for you then Pete is definitely the guy!

About

Tutoring - I am happy to tailor the tutoring experience to meet individual needs. I work together with students to create a plan for tutoring that may involve outside reading and "homework" assignments - if appropriate - to reinforce material covered in lessons. I am also adept at sensing when I may need to shift teaching methods or the pace of lessons for students and I encourage them to provide ongoing constructive feedback. Translations - I have been told that my translations get to the feel and intent of the original writing, beyond simply interpreting the literal meaning. Simply put, I take great care with my word choice in order to reflect the style, tone and subtlety of meaning conveyed by the author as closely as possible. Editing - I love that part of being a good editor is being a good teacher. I make recommendations to improve written material, and if I do my job well, the client learns something from the process. For example, perhaps they will gain insight on how to: make smooth transitions between paragraphs, provide sufficient evidence to support an argument, or reduce unnecessary words for clearer, more concise sentences.

About
