This started out very business like but ended feeling very personal. I appreciated her gentle, yet very honest, critique. My main request of wanting to know exactly what I needed to improve on when I begin writing my other book, and she wonderfully complied.

This was the second time we hired Adam and LoHud. The comics Adam brought each were unique enough that everyone in the audience had a favorite. But it was Adams hosting that kept the show connected. He is not only a very funny comic but as the MC he engaged the audience and kept things rolling smoothly.

Frank Gerace made an excellent editing of my rather complex book entitled “Resonance. My Journey Beyond Ultrasound. It is over five hundred pages and a story of a holocaust survivor, an immigrant and a scientist of ultrasonics. Frank handled the copy editing with ease both the historical and the scientific aspects of this writing. He sometimes changed a phrase or two; in these cases he used the MSWord comment facility to alert me to any edits of grammar or style and in any uncertain situation, he always consulted with me leaving the decision to me, the writer. He double checked place names on Google and even corrected my French and Spanish spelling. His efforts turned my work into a much more readable form. His editing exceeds all my expectation. If there is an award for editing I definitely would nominate Frank for the GRAND PRIX.

Laura is an excellent Spanish teacher! She is always well prepared for our classes and she brings interesting materials for us to go through and learn from. I am at an intermediate level of Spanish and vocabulary is what I have the biggest need in improving, and therefore our classes are mainly about increasing vocabulary. We read different types of text, from news articles to poems, and I feel that is exactly what I need to improve, because I learn such a wide variety of words. Now, after having had four lessons with Laura, I already notice that I have an easier time understanding both spoken and written Spanish, because of the practice I get with Laura, both from our conversations and by learning the unfamiliar words we encounter during each lesson (which are quite a few, the lessons are intense, but definitely worth it!!). What I really like about Laura is how you notice that she is very passionate about Spanish and that she genuinely wants to help you. She is a very motivating teacher because her own interest in learning more and looking up anything she encounters which is not familiar to her, makes me want to learn more as well. (This happens for example when we’re reading from a webpage (in Spanish) about a subject, and then they make a reference to something else, and then we read about that too. She does not derail from Spanish teaching, of course :-) ). Overall it is really fun and helpful to take classes with Laura, she’s a very nice, fun and smart woman and I’m always looking forward to our classes. She’s definitely the best Spanish teacher I’ve had because she helps me in the specific areas I need help with, and I feel that our time spent together is well worth it and that I leave each lesson having learned a lot. I would absolutely recommend Laura to everyone who wants to improve their Spanish!!

David was a great help in editing my book! He was able to organize the ideas and get all of the touches done that I, as the author, was in far too deeply to see! He did fantastic job and Crystal Child is now a reality we can both be proud of!

I was impressed with Kate from the moment our conversations began. She approached this project with enthusiasm and drive. She completed it timely. She provided content analysis along with proofreading. She even went out of her way to investigate alternate options if something she read required improvement topically. I would definitely recommend her and her work to authors looking to get their book edited.

Finding a good tutor is like finding a good book to read. I am lucky to have him tutoring my son. Not only is Elijah teaching my son how to write good sentences, but he helps my son develop his confidence as well

Sophia is awesome! She helped me with my book, a memoir that I wrote. She read different drafts and made very useful editing suggestions and helped me cut some parts out. Definitely recommend her for any writing/editing needs!

Alicia was a fantastic editor for EDM World Magazine for 1 year. She would always be sure to get her edits in on time and left notes when she needed further clarification. She loves grammar more than anyone I know. I highly recommend her. She is a superstar in this field who is connected to her purpose and I fully support her in following her passion!

    Lindsay helped to edit my work of fiction. Not only did I receive proofreading services, but also, Lindsay provided in-depth, constructive commentary with an action plan on how to correct what was needed. I knew Lindsay would be the right editor for this project as I am a big fan of her own written works!

      Julia edited a number of my research manuscripts. In each case, she was prompt in returning edited drafts, and I have been impressed with the thoroughness of her work. Particularly important for me, she was able to recommend edits that fit within the "scientific" style of writing, which is sometimes difficult, in my experience, for editors to do.

      Virginia helped me write content for my website. When I first met with Virginia I was all over the place and didn’t know what I wanted to say or had too much to say. She guided me through the process of coming up with content and asked key questions to help narrow down what my content would be. In the end she took my jumble thoughts and created concise clear wording about my company. I learned more from working with Virgina than I imagined and don’t have anything to change. She is extremely professional, engaging and thorough.
