Expert Resume Solutions offers a much needed service for our Military Servicemen and Women. In fact, these guys should be teaching the Job Search and Resume Writing courses for the Transition Assistance Program (TAP). I will be making this recommendation to the Department of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Administration (VA) directly. Thank you for providing outstanding support through my transition!

Hired for resume writing but ended up with a lot more than expected. Intentionally or not I ended up discovering personal weaknesses and ways to go about resolving and progressing forward. Great long term value far beyond a resume.

I am very pleased to have this opportunity to write this review. I was very impressed with the quality and the presentation of Mr. Eluke's work.

I recommend him very highly and without hesitation. He work is impeccable. Vanessa

Excellent, high quality professional work, dedicated, the editor delivered an excellent quality deliverable under a very tight deadline. An investment I will never regret and will definitely use the services again. The editor is highly knowledgeable with insights that go beyond usual writing tasks. I am highly obliged for her expert suggestions which I have accepted all. I have already recommended her to my other friends and clients, and shared with them very professional experiences I have received while working Lauren on multiple projects. I will be working with her in near and long term future definitely. Highly recommended!

Kevin is a dynamic and effective educator. The indepth feedback that he provided to my son on his writing assignments this past school year is what I've been looking for from his private school teachers since grade school. Kevin has exceptional technical knowledge of grammar which is another area he is focusing on with my son as well as helping him to prepare for the PSAT. We started working with Kevin during the last two months of the 9th grade school year. It was awesome to see the pride my son felt in getting a 98% on his last paper of the year and reading his teacher's glowing comments. I am looking forward to seeing my son finally start the new school year ahead of the curve with getting the extra support that he needs. I can't say enough about how pleased I am with Kevin's services. As an educator I know that tutors like Kevin are hard to find.

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.

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.

My experience with Erin was very brief but, very helpful and enjoyable. My 4th grader needed help with his writing. she did a very thorough assessment of his ability and proceeded. It was summer and we had a lot of travel and were not consistent clients. We are currently looking to rehire and work with her this winter/spring.

Her commentary has always pushed me to think outside of the box and she always found a way to help me express my thoughts eloquently. Not to mention she is very punctual and responds quickly. I will always go to her for my editing services!

Laura is working with my daughter on her writing. When we initially met with her, she presented her credentials, she conducted a comprehensive interview to learn more about my daughter, and she thoroughly answered all questions. My daughter describes her as nice and reports that she allows her to move at her own pace and that each session is geared toward her and her needs. She conducts assessments to understand my daughter's way of learning and makes herself available by email to review work. I am pleased to have such a competent and committed educator working with my child!

Amber was the one person I knew I could count on to help me edit my written papers during college. She helped me when writing my resume when applying to grad school, even though she had a tremendous work load for herself. She taught me how to write well and that is something I will always take with me as I am now half way through pharmacy school.

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.

The first thing that struck me about Ouida is her friendly yet professional personality. She is very knowledgeable and seemed to know exactly want I wanted before I even said it. (Guess that's from the many years of experience she's had in this area). Another plus was her turn-around time. I would highly recommend Ouida to anybody, knowing that she is very dependable, thorough, takes pride in what she does and ensures that her customers are fully satisfied. One of the best decisions I've made. Thanks Ouida!

P. R. Cheek has helped me numerous times on my colllege essays. She was very professional and provided assistance to ensure my papers were cohesive, flowed in a way to make sense, and were on topic. She would tell me what to eliminate from the paper and how to add more descriptive yet pertinent details to make sure my ideas got across. She would explain feedback to make sure you could understand your paper and your voice was in the paper. I got all A’s on the papers she helped write and still use her to this day!

    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.
