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.

I needed to learn Spanish for work, and came to Laura with a very limited background from college. With her help I was able to immediately develop my reading comprehension, speaking, and writing skills. Laura structured and adapted lessons to my specific needs, and meeting with her was never a chore and never felt like “work”. Thanks to Laura I significantly improved my relationships with Spanish speaking clients and coworkers.

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.

Gladys got back to me right away, communicated well, explained everything to me up front. She re-did a resume for me and completed the work in a timely manner. I had originally contacted her a while ago and at the time she was running a promotion. She honored that price even though the promotion is now over.

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.

Samantha's Resume Writing

Samantha contacted me within minutes after I requested help with making a new resume. I didn't really know how to word things or what to add in order to land a new job. Samantha was very friendly and asked questions of me in order to be able to make me a resume catered to the position I have been hoping to receive. Only downside I would say ( which isn't really bad at all.) is that my resume ended up being multiple pages long. She did however send me the word document so I can edit it as I choose and continue to change it in the future if need be for new employment. Very detailed, great vocabulary used. And best of all it was done in just a matter of days. Would recommend her highly. Don't hesitate to contact her, she always listened to my requests.

    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.
