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!!!

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!

I worked with Kevin on two different projects. A complete confusing book manuscript and a synopsis of a potential tv idea. I write in stream of consciousness and Kevin professionally and meticulously unraveled it all into a very readable format. He is a nice guy to work with and very fair and generous with his time. He has incredible dairoken(Japanese intuition) for an American and quickly puts himself in the author's shoes to make a clear and concise product. I highly recommend him for any writing project you have in mind and worth twice the money! Ray Hodge

I had just decided to explore my job opportunities. A head hunter had contacted me. The company wanted a resume within a short period of time. I did not have a draft or a resume since I had always been hired by companies through my network. Jeff responded immediately and had a draft available within 1 day. He asked questions, listened to my needs and finalized within 3 days. This man is unbelievable. His is highly educated, knows the market, and more than willing to lend assistance throughout this process. I highly recommend him. I am forever indebted to his help, guidance and assistance. I am amazed how much support I received for the price. He is truly an amazing writer and coach. If you would like to speak to me for a personal recommendation feel free to contact me at fers5718@aol.com.

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.

Maureen helped me revamp my resume. After teaching for 20 years, it was time to enter the real world of jobs. Maureen took my experiences and translated them into appropriate terms for my new job quest. I appreciated the time Maureen took to get to know me, as she was able to tailor the resume to reflect who I am.

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.

Kim has always been an exceptional writer. She had edited a few writing pieces for me including personal statements and essays. 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!

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.
