I just recently passed my NCLEX exam. I believe that a large part of my success came from my tutoring sessions with Marie Raymond. Her years of personal experience as an ICU nurse, knowledge of various disease processes, nursing interventions, and hands on approach definitely helped me focus and work my way through the vast amount material that needed to be covered for the test. Marie’s utilization of many different study techniques also enhanced my ability to learn. During our study sessions Marie and I utilized various NCLEX styled question banks. We also read through articles detailing various diets and medication regimens. The use of many different learning styles assisted in my ability to answer the different styled NCLEX questions, such as multiple choice, select all that apply, and ordering. Marie is a positive, nurturing person who has a passion for nursing and learning. She has the unique ability to instill confidence in her students when it comes to their intelligence and their nursing capabilities. I believe Marie can help nursing students achieve the goal of passing the NCLEX in a non-stressful, timely, and confidence building environment. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to have her as my tutor and advocate.

I've worked with Linda as a freelance writer for About.com. Linda is a pleasure to read, bringing passion, creativity, and insight to her writing. Furthermore, she is fantastic to work with: professional, organized, vastly knowledgeable, and a lot of fun to boot. As a strong voice for women, she is an inspiration. I would jump at the chance to work with her again!

Great writer. I had her do a resume for me for a new job that I just got and it's the best the job I've ever had!

Working with Georgia is a unique experience. She's an outstanding editor, who works with love, and very careful attention to detail, craft, and each writer's individual potential. Very professional, and extremely well vetted by years of experience, awards, and her own publications. I would completely trust Georgia with my project, either on the page, or in the classroom.

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.
