Dr. Popoola customer service is exceptional. He is very knowledgeable in academic writing and editing. The product of his work is collegiate worthy. I would consult him for any future academic journal writing within the public health research field.

Lauren is a best-in-class resume coach and editor. She reshaped my resume first as an IT Project Manager and then more broadly as a Technology Executive. She is a great listener, she's generous with her time, and she offers strategic advice--as well as detailed line edits--that helped frame my experience for maximum effect (both hard & soft skills). She brought real life experience to the process of rewriting my resume, so I felt like I was getting much more than a copyeditor or even someone who thought like an HR screener. I felt like I was getting someone who thinks like a high level executive -- i.e. the person who ultimately would be looking at my resume & deciding if it was worth his/her time to bring me in. My two experiences with Lauren really paid off, and I'm extremely grateful. Thanks, Lauren!!!

What can I say? Not enough. Lauren was absolutely, mind blowing perfect. A graceful combination of “let’s get moving” (motivation), and “don’t touch a thing after I’m done” (trust). I am a writer who has published several books. I know how difficult it is to “trust” someone else with your work, or as we say, “our babies”. However, on any given day I would put my work in Lauren’s hands. A great listener, her expertise, knowledge, and professionalism is validated by her many well-earned 5 star ratings. Lauren made my book worthy of being a top seller. If it falls short of that mark it is through no fault of hers. Thank you, Lauren. I am glad to have chosen you as my editor, and honored that you accepted me as your client. pure ability to polish the dullest lines into shining verse

Angie's enthusiasm for the first book in my Welltower series inspired me to push forward and publish it. Her enthusiasm, attention to detail and positive guidance gave me the spark to finish three more volumes in the series and to develop more. As with any good editor, their positive reception is due in large part to her work.

Angie typed three novels for me and edited them as she went. All the novels are currently for sale at Amazon and doing well. She is very easy to work with and does things in a timely manner.

Amenah has been an indispensable component of some of my best work throughout my bachelor and masters degrees. Even if the subject matter is obscure, she is able to quickly understand the point I was trying to get across and help me find the most strategic, well-organized pathway to get my point across to the reader. Importantly, she takes into consideration the audience you are writing for (whether academic, journalistic, grant agencies, etc.), helping you tailor the form and delivery of your writing. Amenah is not only a skilled grammatical editor. She is able to work with my style of writing, not against it, making me a better writer with each project she assists on. Her personable nature and common sense way of talking me through even the most complex subject matter helps me organize my thoughts and arguments, making any writing task seem far less daunting. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Amenah.

I am especially good in all things legislative but am happy to deal in all kinds of prose. I also am adept at planning meetings and parties. You won't go wrong if you use my services .

About

Well, there are several reasons: 1) Technically, I know various writing styles real well (AP, GPO, Chicago, APA). 2) Through my years of journalism and other writing experience, I've developed a knack for clear, accurate, succinct expression and finding just the right words for a certain thought. 3) I was trained in Biochemistry in college. This developed my strong analytical ability, which helps me produce clear, logical, and error-free copy. 4) I write poetry, so I bring an aesthetic sensibility to the written word, helping me produce writing that's tasteful, sensitive, and moving. 5) I have a broad general knowledge, in everything from world history to science, art to gastronomy, which strengthens my fact-checking and editing in many ways.
