Ms. Sandy has been doing an awesome job at tutoring my 6 year-old son. Before he met her, my son was struggling with reading a book.(because we only speaks Korean at home) Now his reading skills are much improved and he is able to read! His grade get higher since Ms. Sandy starts to teach him. She is warm, patient and very sweet. We really want to have her to teach him more. We also recommended her to my Korean colleague, who has a 5 year-old daughter. - NamSuk Oh & KyongHwa Jung (in Chicago)

Upon finding out that I needed to submit a "design completed" page for my daughters cotillion book and that I had missed the deadline...SHEER PANIC settled in for me. I pleaded for an extension as I was traveling. They gave me 24 hours! After calling around while in St.Louis, I remembered THUMBTACK! Shannon responded and requested more information about what I needed. I contacted her rambling and frantic, desperately seeking understanding of my issue. Shannon comforted me with her confidence to complete the job in just a few hours. I was able to send her a few photos, describe what I wanted and she created a masterpiece! Shannon is clearly a professional who not only handles escalated requests, she manages with precision, confidence and comfort to the customer. This is the type of service that deserves constant public recognition and the highest accolades possible. I am elated with her work, and regard her highly as others should too. Shannon SAVES LIVES!!!:)

My wife and I met Michaelle and Peggy about a year ago at a community event in Oak Lawn. Grin For Life had a table at the event to promote their products and services. Along the table there were hand made coasters with sayings pictures poems etc. As a business owner I thought it would be a great idea to have my company logo printed on coasters to promote my business. I got 6 of them made up for my office and my staff and clients loved them. They brought a new feeling to the conference room. I have been using Grin For Life ever since. As of today, they have helped my business with thank you gifts, personal greeting cards, baby gifts and the list goes on and on. My wife and I have also been using Grin For Life for our personal family gifts too. I had them make up 6 coasters for my wife's birthday with pictures of our family. For Christmas, we ordered several personalized gifts for family members including an 8/10 picture tile of all the grand kids for my parents. Currently we are in the process of designing an apron for my brother in law. The gift possibilities are endless, the prices are affordable, and the ordering process is painless. Thank you to Grin For Life for everything you have done for my business, clients and for making birthdays and holidays special for our family.

Nikki's sunny personality and ESL expertise helped me to learn faster, while also enjoying the process. When I first met Nikki she told me she was a certified ESL teacher and I did not think it mattered at all. I was surprised that it had such a big impact on my English learning. When I came to her I was uncomfortable writing and resistant to reading. Now I have more confidence writing for my business and I am inspired to read books, not just articles. I really cannot speak more highly of teacher Nikki. She change my life.

I own a roofing company in Chicago and started working with Expert Chicago last April to get ready for the roofing season and to meet our sales/growth goals in 2015. Our experience was great, the pay for performance service that you guys offer really impressed me! We received a total of 104 leads and 37% turned into a job for us. I stopped my Home Advisor subscription completely, I just got really tired of never winning any of the bids and having to drop my prices and compete with all the other roofing companies they sold my lead to. All of the calls I received from potential customers were ONLY sold to me, the quality was 100 times higher. I can't wait till this year to see how we do working with Stephanie and her team!

I hired Mike to do some copy editing for an eBook I had written. Not only did he do an exceptional job with copy editing basics, he was able to recommend someways to restructure the content that would make the overall product better. On top of that, I asked if he could expedite the work and he was more than responsive. Overall, exceptional work. Very happy.

Helen Cuprisin’s Alphabet Soup, a graphics design company, has produced some spectacular work both on my behalf and that of my colleagues. These include, most importantly, PDFs of two books that were published in 2011 and 2014, respectively: The Srebrenica Massacre: Evidence, Context, Politics (as posted to the Electric Politics website (and elsewhere): http://www.electricpolitics.com/media/docs/herman.srebrenica.pdf ); and Enduring Lies: The Rwandan Genocide in the Propaganda System, 20 Years Later (The Real News Books, available here: http://www.amazon.com/Enduring-Lies-Rwandan-Genocide-Propaganda-ebook/dp/B00P1KAI74 ).— I cannot recommend Ms. Cuprisin’s services more highly.

When I need solutions, I call Faith. I can not begin to express how great it has been to work with her. I met Faith while serving as Marketing Director of a University. She was contracted for numerous editing projects. Later, Faith assisted me in transitioning to my present entrepreneurial role. We collaborated in web content creation/editing. Faith has a strong background in business services, accounting, and compliance. Yet, she enjoys writing and editing - what a combination. Her business recommendations have been invaluable and her excitement is phenomenal. You should see for yourself. Faith has my recommendation!

Katie was a joy to work with! She made us feel so comfortable and it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Her eye for detail and ability to see the picture before she took it was perfect. Then she got the pictures to me and my fiancé very quickly so we were able to enjoy them! I would definately book katie for my next portrait session.

Best value for your money!! The Tutors are qualified, the materials and the Test Prep books are top notch. And best of all the Director was with us every step of the way. Calling us and making sure that we were making progress as anticipated. I give them the best points for staying on top of everything to make sure that my child was successful in school.

We were pleasantly surprised when she did not charge us for our first meeting. She wanted to meet our daughter first and to find out about our expectations, which I think was important. She was very attentive and came back with a plan to help us reach our goals. She had a list of books she feels were appropriate for my daughter's level and was open to suggestions and changes. Overall a joy to work with. My daughter likes her and we look forward to see her every week.

I recently published a book, and Janet was an absolute DREAM to work with as the editor! Seriously. My greatest concern with this project was wanting to see and hear my voice come through on the pages. Janet made that happen! I could hear my voice come to life. Not only was the finished manuscript flawless, no errors, but there was also a TON of amazing feedback and respect of my vision for the book. Her feedback was honest and constructive, a passionate critique of my writing style, and there were even a few laughs for the both of us. What a joy to work with! AND, Janet even went above and beyond to create a unique and personalized video tutorial to guide me through the process of reviewing her edits in Word. Can't say enough to express how happy I am with the results of working with Janet!

Alisa is a very talented and unique young artist, whose professional interests embrace several areas of creativity, with an emphasis on painting/drawing and book writing. The depth of understanding of human experiences along with artistic insight, demonstrated by Alisa, is extremely rare even among older and well-established artists and writers. Her ability to see the world in its complexity and to interpret her vision creatively is fascinating! Alisa's marvelous taste, great intelligence, consistency, high professional standards and delightful personality make her a great artist and a very pleasant person to work with.

    John is a great editor, very detailed in grammar specifics yet sensitive to voice, style and tone. I'd use him again in a flash.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
