I needed help coming up with an idea for a research project and got great advice from Essay Queen to get me started. Starting an essay is always the hardest part, and my writer helped me get started in the right direction.
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
Mike was a contributing editor to my book, "The Fight Versus Reality: Combating the Circumstances of Life", and he has always put his best effort into his work and it shows why his passion and his work ethic is so well likable because he goes to the end of the earth for those he serves, his congenial disposition is what also makes him such a great person to do business with...highly recommend him hands down, thumbs up
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.
Malory is an incredibly gifted and talented writer. She is very attentive to detail. Malory has a finesse and eloquence about the way she writes. I am eager to work with her again soon!
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!
Marjie is a concise and efficient writer. Beyond her practical competencies, she is a pleasure to work with -- creative and kindhearted, patient and focused. I highly recommend her for any writing/editing projects.
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.)
I can't recommend Charles highly enough. He is absolutely amazing as a person and as a professional. I was struggling so much with my resume before I met him and couldn't find good job. After a few meetings with him he was able to figure out what are my string sides are and put everything so beautifully together that when I read it I cried. Really. I didn't know that I am that great but everything he wrote was true. And as you can guess I found a job right away. I recommend him to all my friends and they all are happy with him and ALL got job quickly. I suspect that besides being a good writer he also brings good luck. I can't thank you enough, Charles!
Sandra made sure she had a clear grasp of my needs and the purpose and audience of the writing project, which is a series of blog-style book reviews/summaries that provide college and career advice. She wrote in a style that fit seamlessly with my website and provided exactly what I had asked. She met her deadline and maintained clear, professional communication and follow-through for a fee that was much more reasonable than other quotes I had received (some of which had typos and others which were instant responses without details that never delivered on promise to provide more info) I am very happy and will be using her services on an ongoing basis.
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.
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.
