Jeremy is an excellent teacher. My daughter has benefited in more ways than I can count because of Jeremy. She has become more organized and is learning an advanced curriculum in both math and writing. He is a dedicated teacher and always makes sure my child's learning comes first. Now, instead of arguing with her to study for exams, she does so without hesitation. He gives me a summary of every lesson and explains what my daughter has been learning and what she can improve on. Overall, Jeremy is a excellent role model and plays a pivotal role in my daughter's life. I won't hesitate to hire him again for my second daughter if needed.

I was very pleased to select Lou for my resume writing project. Although I was concerned initially about cost, I came to realize by the end of the project that she's well worth the money. Lou took the time to understand my concerns and she didn't just type a document but made sure that what she produced for me was aimed at getting employers interested in me. She was a pleasure to work with and I'm happy to recommend her.

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 exceptional tutor. She is highly patient and utilizes various learning modalities to help a student absorb and retain the Spanish language. Her methods work on comprehension, reading, writing and speaking. She spends time working on the diction and pronunciation of words. She customizes the lessons to your individual learning needs. Laura is also working on fine tuning some bad habits that I picked up over the years which is helping me re-learn the proper usage of the language. It is a process yet she will make it fun and engaging.

David Tabatsky is one of those rare individuals in modern day publishing who consistently shines in all three of the industry's most fundamental criteria: writing, editing and administrative skills. He would be an asset to any organization seeking someone whose love of words is matched only by his proficiency at putting them together.

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 helped to revamp my resume since it had been awhile since i had made any updates. She was very patient, and took as long as you needed over the phone to get all the information. Even though my job is very different she also took the time to do research and learn more about the industry and position. This showed me that she was all in to get it right, which in the end it looked and read great. Kate was really able to portray everything i would have wanted on my resume and more, making me feel much more confident heading into the job search. I would highly recommend Kate for her writing skills, patience, experience and work ethic. Thanks again Kate!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
