I had a one on one session with Tom and it was fantastic. At first I thought I was pretty ok with my speech outline before I talked to him. It wasn't until we talked about the structure of my speech that I realized my speech lacked focus. Long story short, we completely restructured my speech together and Tom gave me extremely great insights on how to plan out my speech before I even begin writing it. This is knowledge something that I will take it to the heart and will never forget.

Ms. Belle has tutored my twins since September 2016. She is great with them and they love working with her. I have seen significant improvements in my kids' written ability in terms of clarity, volume, flow, and style. They are in the 5th Grade AAP Level IV program in FCPS and are now comfortable constructing multiple paragraphs to express their ideas or tell a story. My daughter is especially confident and excited in her writing since working with Ms. Belle. My son's ability to write about his passion for sports has soared. The effort is reflected in the last two report cards and in the grades that they receive on their language arts projects. I highly recommend Ms. Belle as a language arts tutor and we will continue to engage her services.

Sabrina edited a manuscript on the application of evolutionary theory to various philosophical problems. Given the length (64K words) and the difficulty of the subject matter, I was impressed with how quickly she turned the work around.

Dale was a great ACT tutor, especially when it came to teaching an international student the ins and outs of the Reading and Writing sections. Since we started working two weeks before the test date, Dale laid out a great strategy of drilling practice tests and helped us find our weak points to review. He had a great base of resources and experience to help us not only with tactics and test taking skills, but how we could apply these study techniques to a broad range of tests and classes.

As a long time research collaborator of Dr. Loffredo for whom Nandhini worked at Georgetown University, I had the opportunity to closely interact with her, observe her performance and appreciate her outstanding work. Nandhini ‘s writing quality, attention to details, and excellent organizational skills made her a great asset to the research team.

When I was looking online for someone to help me with my resume my biggest concerns were the cost and the quality of resume. Jeff not only gave me a great price for writing my resume he was very professional. Within a couple of days I had my new resume in my hand. I don't usually take time to write reviews but when someone takes the time to help me the way Jeff did a quick 5 star review was not enough.

We executed a support contract with ERS earlier in the Spring to assist with a government manpower proposals. We won the bid using the contract resume writing services offered by ERS. I am confident we would not have won if not for Kelly's expertise in government contracting and HR practices. We have found a trusted resource for future proposals!

    Ouida's resume writing was just what I needed to help turn my old resume around. The layout of my resume was chaotic and confusing and she was able to shuffle through all the verbiage and delivered a clear yet effective document that will get attention. She knows her stuff and has a professional and tactful was of delivering advice. She is always looking at the resume through the lens of a recruiter and that is extremely important in this competitive job market. I absolutely and 100% recommend her service.

      I can't say enough about how Amazing Julie's writing skills are! I hadn't had much luck with landing interviews... That is until I found Julie! She worked with me to develop a resume that just blew my mind when I saw it. She pulled out what I knew was in me, but couldn't put into words or articulate well in my old resume. Within two days of sending out my amazing new resume, I was contacted by multiple companies - including Apple, my dream job. I interviewed and landed the job. I can honestly say that I know they wouldn't have looked at my resume had it not been for Julie's fresh style and amazing writing. Do yourself a favor and let her help you! You won't regret it!

      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.
