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.

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.

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 was initially skeptical of hiring an editor online. However while researching different editors I came across Tami Williscroft on Thumtack. I took the risk and reached out to her. Tami proved me wrong she responded to every email,question, etc almost immediately. She also was not pushy for me to make a decision. That was my first impression which prompted me to hire her. Not only was she amazing at communication she was even better in the editing she did for me. She made several suggestions, allowed me to look them over and went back and forth like this several times. She truly put all of her effort in assisting me in having a final product that could be submitted at the doctoral level. I am grateful to have found her, will use her again in the future, and if anyone is looking I would highly recommend her to others.

Adrienne shows punctuality and adaptiveness when writing the newsletter for my company, Anyone Comics. We only had a few back and forths, on the onset, where I shared with her some resources for information related to comic books. Her instincts of what products to highlight and the language she uses helped create a personable experience for the clients that subscribed. Highly recommended.

Kat is a truly gifted editor. I’ve hired her on numerous occasions to help me communicate exactly what it is I’ve wanted to say. I’ve received nothing but positive responses on each occasion. Her communication is unparallel and she has a delightfully calming disposition and attitude. Will hire again and again A+++

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!

Verified review

Julia edited a number of my research manuscripts. In each case, she was prompt in returning edited drafts, and I have been impressed with the thoroughness of her work. Particularly important for me, she was able to recommend edits that fit within the "scientific" style of writing, which is sometimes difficult, in my experience, for editors to do.

I specialize in developmental editing, line editing, and proofreading--I take manuscripts and improve their story arcs and characterizations and fix all grammatical and stylistic errors. But most of all, I punch up the prose--I make it more vivid and more concise, and I make dialog sound more interesting and natural.
