It is hard to capture the extent of my appreciation for the editing services Margaret Diehl provided. She went far and beyond engaging with both my book and with me, teaching me more about writing than I had ever imagined and holding my feet to the creative fire of making my book a much better work than I could have done on my own. Her ear for writing, the arc of the story, placement of events, and the need for ever further character development went far beyond any remuneration I provided. Margaret also had the eerie ability to detect the presence of an absence, challenging me to fill in the blanks, blanks I soon realized were there in unconscious defense against emotional material from which I was shying away. Margaret’s maintaining deadlines, prompt responses, and dry wit all added to maintaining the challenge and momentum of writing, making it an ever more enjoyable and fulfilling experience. I recommend Margaret Diehl not only without reservation, but wholeheartedly. No need to look further. Hire her now.

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.

Syreeta is Heaven sent, to say the least! Prior to meeting her, I'd paid another individual to complete my resume- and the end result was horrific! I then submitted a request for a resume writer via Thumbtack, and Syreeta responded immediately. Her response was professional, thorough, and to the point. She called me on the same night and provided a detailed explanation of her services, and then asked a series of pertinent questions regarding my career. I immediately felt at ease during our initial conversation. We met the very next day for about an hour, and when I attempted to pay her, she explained that the initial consultation is always free. How awesome is that! I really appreciate the fact that she opted to meet up with me face to face versus sending a questionnaire or form to fill out. I'm a Software Engineer and she let me know that she did not have a strong IT background- but was willing to work with me side by side, until it met my expectation. She literally stayed up all night writing my resume and I really appreciate her efforts and willingness to do this at a moment's notice. Once I received the final draft of my resume the next day, I was blown away. It exceeded my expectation, to say the least. And I forgot to mention that this all took place over the course of 3 days :) I highly recommend Syreeta for any service that her business offers. She delivers on time and does magnificent work.

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.

I have technical documents often to be edited. My writing in English is not so strong because I am from Hungary and she can change it to make it much better. She understands the technical language even through my Bad English, and she is always punctual and professional. I will continue to use her service.

In 2014, I took an Introduction to Linguistics class with Prof. Mary Ryan at LaGuardia Community College. Prof. Ryan is an exceptional and considerate teacher, she understands each student’s needs and is driven to advance them. She is one of the most dedicated professors I’ve had during my academic career. After taking her class, I gained a fundamental knowledge of Linguistics, which inspired me to return to school and pursue my Bachelor’s degree after 25 years. To me, Prof. Ryan is an inspiration and a role model. Rosa Amaya

“Ivy League Tutors has helped tremendously with everything academic. Their tutoring methods are superior to anything else I have tried, which helped me study for the Biology SAT and have an extraordinary edge over others. In an efficient and interesting manner I was able to learn more than I ever had before on my own or with other tutors, and I received help in many other aspects like colleges, math, and chemistry. I will be sure to continue using Ivy League Graduate Tutors for all of my needs that I am sure they will greatly help” - Ron Fishman, Old Tappan, NJ

Elijah is a brilliant tutor. He has a unique combination of qualities: deep intelligence and sincere compassion. My son had never taken a physics course and yet in three months Elijah had taught him so well he was able to score a 700 on the SAT subject test. Whatever the topic (we have also used him to tutor in Spanish and history) Elijah is able to instruct and motivate. He is a terrific role model. We have very much enjoyed having him in our home. Elijah is a master teacher. You can find less expensive tutors, but none better. He is worth every penny. He has helped my son gain academic confidence in his patient, quiet way. We will always be grateful to him.

    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.
