Pat was awesome awesome awesome. In a very short amount of time, practically over a weekend, the woman did wonders for me! I was a frantic mess in trying to find an editor for my dissertation equivalent project for my doctorate degree. God knew what I needed. We communicated through text, emails, phone, etc. and she was available to talk corrections and edits from start to finish. Well worth the 575.00! I plan to use her for my non profit and when I start writing my book as well. Thanks so much Pat and God bless you!!!

I felt comfortable with Asha the moment I met her. She took the time to learn about who I am and how I'm hoping to grow as a writer and as a human being. Her enthusiasm for the work is contagious! After our first meeting I found myself writing 3 consecutive days in a row...something I haven't been able to do for 2 years. I am delighted to work with Asha and am thrilled that she is in the world offering us her gifts.

Working with Linda of execUchange absolutely changed my life for the better. She is an excellent Career Coach and Resume Writing wizard! When we started working together, I lacked the confidence to achieve the great success I was seeking, because it had been many years since I interviewed or upgraded my resume. I definitely felt like the positions I was qualified for, and desired, were out of reach due to these challenges. Because of Linda's honesty and vast industry knowledge, she helped me prepare for the tough interviews so I felt more confident, and ready to take on the higher level positions that we both agreed I was qualified for. In addition, the resume she crafted for me was STELLAR and with just a few changes, I can use it for three types of positions. In all my years in my career, I would average a 50% response rate with the resumes I was submitting and after submitting Linda's resume, I had a 90% response rate. Linda crafted my resume and cover letter in such a way that is impeccable, professional, and made people want to interview me. Due to her coaching and superb resume, I landed an incredible position because of all the hard work we did together. I know that without Linda, none of this would have been possible.

I am a Human Resource Assistant for the Department of Defense for the past 5 years. Mrs. DeShannon Bynum Dixon facilitated a self-development conference at our church! Emmanuel Christian Church which consisted of life skill training. She did an excellent job of teaching us resume writing and interview skills and how to negotiate your salary. It has been four months since her dynamic training and I'm excited to say I have secured a new position at the Department of Veteran Affairs. The best part about it I received a raise and a promotion!!! I will begin my new position September 8 with a $4000.00 increase in my salary. Thank you DeShannon!!!!!

      My Spanish experience with Ms. Jayd was awesome. She pushed me outside of my Spanish class and gave me added tips that aided my classwork. With her help I was able to recieve the Spanish Excellence award at my school and ended at the top of my class! She is engaging, punctual, professional, polite and respectful. I'm a rising tenth grader and am exciting to work with Ms. Jayd in the future as I continue my Soanish journey.

      Anna worked with my son to prep him for the new SAT this past spring. She worked with us to meet in a mutually convenient spot, and was always flexible with scheduling. Our son needed the most help with the essay, and Anna spent hours prepping him on how to brainstorm, organize, and write the essay on the SAT in such a short amount of time. She also helped him with the reading and writing sections by identifying his strengths and weaknesses, and helping him figure out the best strategy to beat the test. We will definitely be using Anna again to tutor in English next school year!

      Jenn rocks! Her writing is exceptional and insightful. She quickly gained an understanding of our company’s differentiators and proceeded to craft on-point and relevant sales collateral. From Day One, Jenn asked sharp questions and expertly matched the voice and tone of our company. She communicates extremely well during the entire project life cycle, respects deadlines and continues to take the lead on multiple, simultaneous writing assignments.

      Krithika is an excellent tutor. She knows all the conventions, rules, expectations, and online resources for topics of high school writing such as critical thinking, literary analysis, research papers, SAT prompts, and college admissions. Like her profile says, she brings passion to the subject. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious, so not only has my son’s writing improved, but so has his interest in the subject. She’s an excellent communicator who can connect with the student as well as mediate with the parent. I am sure her advice and guidance are going benefit my son for the rest of his life.

      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.
