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

I am writing this review as I am extremely happy with the services Coach Lynn provided. After several sessions with her and professionally written resume I got two interviews out of only 3 jobs I have applied for and have already scheduled my final interview at the University of my choice! Coach Lynn didn't only give me a professional advice, but she motivated me to do my best when I felt discouraged! She is truly an amazing life coach! I can always text her for an advice or just an encouragement and she's always there for you! She is super friendly and sweet and has a calm positive aura that brings enormous positivity! What a finding! I knew it right away it would have been a successful companionship! She is outstanding!!!

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.

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.

Wendy was amazing! She taught me how to read patterns and told me not to be afraid to improvise if needed to make it work. It was just what I needed. My pattern turned out great and I feel great about my edits to it. I would defiantly hire her again!

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.

I was really struggling with the math and reading sections on the SAT. I was contacted by Universal Design Tutoring and I couldn't be more thankful. I needed a high score to get into the college I was really hoping to get into because my gpa wasn't the greatest. My tutor was so knowledgeable and put things in lamens terms for me and I was able to get the score I needed. I'm so happy:) I would highly recommend their 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.
