She really helped me streamline the conclusion of my graduate school essay. She also helped me more succinctly convey critical parts of my essay's story. Turn around time was as promised and she communication throughout the process was great!
The project was to find a professional resume writer who could create a resume and cover letter for a retiree with 25+ years of experience to apply for an administrative part-time position. I believe the comments below speak for themselves. First reaction, "WOW. I really wasn't too optimistic that she would be able to take what I provided her and craft it in such a way to get so much information into 1 page. Of course my expectation was an improvement over what I provided, but she really took it to another level; I was amazed! To have someone who truly understands ... respects my feelings is absolutely priceless. I guess the best way I can say this, is the professionalism, sincerity and genuine commitment to my project is something we all as consumers wish we could experience with any company we do business with! Well done!" Thank you so much for a job Well done!
Frank Gerace is an highly effective and experienced editor! In particular I was struck by his ability to quickly grasp the deep intention of my writing. His feedback was clear, candid and caring. the net result was a highly polished piece of writing that left me grateful.
Tori helped me edit my fiction piece which I was having a very hard time piece together. Sometimes my past tense would shift to present tense. She really helped me stabilize the piece and she underlined what vocabulary words I should use to give the piece more life. She also knew what sentences needed to be shifted to the front and how to transition from paragraph to paragraph more smoothly. In all she knows a lot about syntax and sentence structure. I would highly recommend her.
David Tabatsky edited my book which came out in January. He worked with me about a year. He was a joy to work with, not only because of his expertise in editing, but because he is such a kind and compassionate person. He was always willing to go the extra mile. He is a very creative person and comes up with many great ideas.
Kate is easy and fun to work with. She has an intuitive approach. She is a good listener. I interviewed 6 writers (1 in Canada, 5 in US) before talking with Kate and I decided to go with Kate for 3 reasons: 1- her high-quality is worth more than its cost. 2 - she leaves nothing on the table, she is going to write it out and in a timely manner; without delay. 3 - her interview for my bio write-up was so thoughtful. Meaning, at one point I said to Kate, "I was hoping you were going to ask me about that." I've included a picture of my bio. The best part about working with Kate on my bio is that she aspires to capture your story and her writing technique is so good that whatever your story her writing adapts. Just know, if you work with Kate she is going to nail it! #thumbtack
Kate is an excellent writer. I am so happy I worked with her. She helped me with statement of purpose essay for graduate school. She is good with grammar, punctuation and style. I would work with her again.
This was not my first effort trying to use a content writer and I had a negative opinion of all content writers after my first experience. Malory from “The Missing Ink” quickly changed my opinion about the value and opportunity a skilled writer can offer to a company. Malory is an excellent content writer and capable of writing about almost anything. She is punctual and created a beautiful 2,700 words of awesome content and she made it in a day. Based upon her first sample writing effort, I was so impressed that i have already given her new projects to tackle and plan to utilize her unique skills into the foreseeable future.
I thought JT was great to work with. He really took the time to speak with me and get my vision for where I wanted my content to go and say. If you are considering a content writer, I would highly recommend JT as he takes his time and gets it done right.
Rosemary edited and is publishing a personal essay I submitted to her online literary magazine, Lumen. Her advice was spot on, and her magazine is excellent!
Dr. Leisa Herrera of Vision Legacy completed many projects for me. She was responsible for helping me redesign my resume and cover letter (which landed me a job better than I expected); she counseled me on my career path (and wasn't shy about providing critiques) and coached me for my interview; she wrote my wedding program from start to finish and all my pastor had to do was read it; she planned and officiated the funeral service for my grandma (complete with obituary and PowerPoint presentation) and I call on her to edit and critique my essays for school - which always get rave reviews. She's tough, thorough and fair. The only negative is that if you have an appointment with her and are even a minute late - you'll have to reschedule. She's strict with time. I continue to be a client and am hope that this works out for her. I think she could help a lot of people! (Niecey W.)
As one of Maria’s fellow peers, I have seen at first stance her dedication for her students and colleagues through multiple kinds of professions. Outside of her skills as an actor and tutor, Maria also specializes in essay style writing/editing and proof-reading. Over the last couple of weeks Maria has helped me write a few cover letters for various internships and job positions within the music and entertainment industry. Having already put together a “general” format cover letter, I knew that Maria would be the ideal person to add just the right about of personal and creative touch towards writing an compelling letter. After a few suggested edits and sentence changes, her and I were on our way to creating a cover letter that began to highlight my best strengths as a working professional and skills as an artist/performer. Maria’s heartwarming personality and prompt timeliness makes her the perfect candidate consider at any such establishment and/or work place.
I enjoy reading Dana's restaurant and event reviews at her Dana Licious website. She has a light-hearted and concise way of explaining things that really helped to convince me to try restaurants and other establishments that I wouldn't have known about. I look forward to reading any of her reviews and blogs. She's an excellent writer.
I contacted Robert after being impressed by his tutoring philosophy. Having only a few months of being tutored by him, the end result was getting to the 98th percentile from the 93 percentile for me. Robert is one of the most patient tutors I have ever had (I have received tutoring since 8th grade), and he explains everything clearly. Follow his logic and do not be afraid to ask any questions about anything. He is an expert on the whole organization of test prep, and he will provide you with the most useful websites for additional test prep. In addition, he is knowledgeable about other subjects as well, which is why I continue to seek his help with my issues in college such as time management and study skills. While working with Robert on the ACT we spoke about other areas of my education as well as my college plans. I came to realize that Robert took a sincere interest in my overall well-being, and consistently made suggestions that invaluable to me on many fronts. Within a few weeks I began to call upon him to help me with my educational plan and college applications. Together, we developed strategies to strengthen my application and Robert helped me to develop my college essays. We went through the trials and tribulations of the college application process, and every step of the way Robert was there to help guide me. Even today, as a freshman at an Ivy League university Robert was there to help me with course selection in addition to many of the challenges an incoming student faces on a college campus. One thing that struck me the most is his ability to understand people, especially how one person responds to different situations. This is important because he is able to understand what is exactly preventing someone from achieving the best of their ability. For example, there was a specific component that I was struggling with my coursework, and he helped me overcome that problem after identifying a specific study limitation that I did not know I had. Over time, he has become a mentor for me. Truly you will be very lucky to have Robert as a tutor because he goes above and beyond for you, and young adults need someone to guide them through difficult times.
Tony generated a very professional resume. He formatted it so that it looked great both on the printed page and on screen. Tony spent time on the phone with me gathering the salient points--education, experience, skill sets, honors and awards, publications, etc., then drafted a resume which I was able to review and edit as needed. Happily, Tony did such a great job displaying and emphasizing my credentials that I did not have to change anything! I was invited to participate in both phone screenings and in-person interviews. Tony acted as job coach to prepare me for those events through role playing exercises where he was the interviewer and I was the interviewee. During these sessions, Tony helped me become aware of my phone presence, made suggestions regarding my delivery, and recommended that I stay on topic when answering questions, yet expand to emphasize my expertise in the field, when necessary. I am extremely pleased with Tony's abilities as a resume writer and interview coach. I know that you will find this to be the case as well. Tony's methods resulted in my landing a new job. I have been working there for six months. I know that Tony's efforts and instruction helped me get my position.

Most importantly, as a tutor she creates a warm, comfortable and patient environment and has helped me tremendously as a professional with writing and editing applications and different essays. She is an exceptional teacher and person and I would whole-heartedly recommend working with her.
