I was very nervous to begin this process and struggled with the first step of asking for help regarding my career. I’m so glad I began these steps and Sandra helped make my resume restructuring an enjoyable and informative opportunity. She was incredibly patient and professional and even took the time to meet with me for over an hour to get to know me, helping her craft my resume more effectively. I would recommend her to anyone and will use her again if I need any more writing help.

Laura is an amazing therapist! She was able to help me with solving problems related to employment decision, life style changes, family relationships and personal challenges. She has a keen focus on listening to the concerns. Most importantly, she provides real strategies, solutions and suggestions in getting the help that you need. I have anxiety and I am learning how manage it. Most importantly , I especially enjoyed the convenience of having our sessions over the telephone as we were in two different states.

I have been working with Victoria Reeves for 4 years now and I must say that her teaching/help is outstanding! Not only have I been able to improve my writing skills grammatically, my vocabulary has increased tremendously. Her personality is very fun as well, so whenever you're taking classes, you won't feel bored or ready to fall asleep. That is one of my favorite parts about being tutored by her. It breaks the image of a traditional, dreadful tutor. You get to learn for someone with a bubbly, lively personality while getting studies done. I definitely recommend her!

Our first meeting was great. He is a conscientious tutor. He prepared some practices for me to learn about my skills such as listening, speaking, reading, and writing. And then he will customize a plan for me, according to my performance in our first meeting.

Jessie helped me edit and better the flow of the book that I had wrote. When I chose her it was initially because of her educational background and the energy she brought to my work but once we started to dive into the writing I was even more impressed! She lives for this, she did such an amazing job and I will be utilizing her serives for any future work as well as referring my friends and family to her. Some of the things I did not not know upon choosing her to edit my work is that she uses Google Docs to help create a collaborative environment that is also convenient, easy to navigate through and allows for the opportunity to compare the edits she has made to what was previously written. The best way to describe her work is that she took what I was trying to explain to the reader/audience and ACTUALLY made it into what I was trying to explain. Thank you Jessie!

Let me just start out saying wow! The project that Racquel completed was more than I expected. She asked the right probing questions to pullout achievements (which was very hard for me) and did a beautiful job representing me as professional in my career. I didn’t know that I could look so good on paper. The process was smooth and fast. The quality of the work was execptional! I highly recommend Racquel. She knows what she’s doing and is an expert career coach. Writing is execptional!

    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.
