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.

I met Maura a while ago when I was looking for a teacher to help me improve my conversation skills in English. During our meetings she stimulated the conversation by asking lots of questions about myself, about my country, making me not only to use English but gaining the necessary confidence needed to speak in another language that is not my native one. Another valuable thing that I learned from Maura was a good insight about American culture, people and places in NJ/NY. She also recommended me great books for improving my conversation skills, with useful expressions and topics for practice. Last but not the least, Maura shared from her experience in Toefl preparation exam which is one of my future objectives. I recommend Maura for anyone who is interested in improving English language skills.

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 had a great experience with Laura. I worked with her in 2017 when she line-edited my book. In addition to cleaning up my prose, she had a lot of great suggestions about how to make the work better. When it comes to feedback, she's both skillful and kind -- something I value highly. Also, she's got a great sense of humor, keen insight, a sensibility for nuance, and is very easy to be around.

Best money I ever spent. I sent my screenplay to Desi and she turned it into something that I could actually sell: it's currently under an option agreement with a production company. As a writer/editor, Desi Domo is a miracle worker!!

Rosemary Donahue is a visionary editor, articulate, dedicated, honest, and detail-oriented, striking the balance between amiable and diligence. She recently co-founded Lumen, the innovative journal of literature and ideas by and for women, which promises to be an important American magazine. She also served as fiction editor of Pacific Review, doing most of the design and layout, demonstrating style, toughness and pizazz under time-pressure at every juncture. She's one of the best editors I've ever worked with in the past twenty years!

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!

      Linda is a professional of the highest order. She was genuinely interested in my development as a student and as a professional. She was always looking for ways to improve the class and learning environment, as well as to adapt the curriculum to my needs and interests. In addition, she always treated me with the uttermost respect. Finally, I must add that Linda not only has an acquaintance of the English language but also of literature. Thanks to Linda’s assignments and recommendations, I discovered several great authors and books that I was unaware of.
