Dr. Deb is a very professional editor. I chose Dr. Deb for editing my Ph.D. dissertation. She provided not only regular editing of grammar but also of syntax and contents of my paper. She went the extra mile to make sure everything is perfect. She has a very expansive experience with the Ph.D. style of writing such as APA style which I needed. I would definitely recommend her for any academic work. The service is well worth the money.

I've worked with Dr. Deb for the past two years. She has been extremely responsive to my requests and editing needs. I would give her professionalism and the services provided in the past more than SIX STARS. Dr. Deb has gone above a beyond to help me deliver exceptional work and help me shine among my colleagues through the careful editing of my work. Other coworkers and colleagues who I have referred Dr. Deb to have been amazed and grateful for the fast turnaround and precise editing Dr. Deb had provided to them. Dr. Deb is transparent with expectations, provides her fee structure upfront, and what to expect of her services prior to the start of each project. I believe being transparent and her effective communication negates any worries in order to focus on delivering an exceptional product. I plan to work with Dr. Deb for many more years to come for she is like a coach and mentor who wants the best for her clients. Thank you Dr. Deb for being professional, continually exceeding my expectations, and pushing me to learn to be a better writer.

Debra's work on my writing sample was paramount to transforming last year's rejection letter from my top graduate program (Harvard) into an acceptance with a generous financial aid package. Her years of experience were evident in her insightful commentary and editing style. I thought I only needed to revisit my paper's syntax, which she did beautifully. Still, Debra went above and beyond to ensure proper citation of all components including the data tables and graphs while being mindful of the page limits. I cannot thank Debra enough for giving me and my application a confidence boost. If you are looking for a copy editor or an expert eye, look no further. Without a doubt, I will reach out to Debra on other projects as I continue my academic career.

Deb was really responsive, and I liked working with her. It was a pleasure. She managed to proofread and copy-editing my Ph.D. thesis within the deadline and considered all my document requirements. She put much effort into it and fulfilled this job very professionally and also in a very personal way. I can definitely recommend her. Thanks again Deb.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I work on a sliding scale and frequently try to "bundle" services if you need more than one service. No job is too big or too small. I make quotes on the draft to be edited and type of work to be done. Why? Because, for example, no two research papers, grant applications, or businesses are the same. Note schools and journals have differing requirements. The level of editing you need can differ greatly from someone else. Why should you pay a one-size fits all price when I can deliver service with fees that match your needs? Regardless of which style of writing and editing you must use, why should you pay for more than you need? Because I offer many different services, I can be one-stop shopping. If you need editing or writing, I make quotes directly on draft that you provide so that I can give you the best price possible as based on your needs. In this way I can do exactly what you need without giving a one-size fits all price. I can also provide several quotes that might meet your needs so that you can choose. I most often charge by page for writing and editing and sometimes by hour for coaching and other kinds of meetings. I give discounts for longer-term customers. I expect payment up front on small jobs but I can work out payments on larger jobs. My rates vary widely on page charges, from several dollars per page up to $35 or so for detailed developmental editing/writing. Similarly, the coaching rates vary mostly based on what your combined needs may be.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I need to know as much as you are comfortable with sharing about your needs. If its editing then I will ask to see documents prior to quoting on them. I make quotes directly on draft that you provide so that I can give you the best price possible as based on your needs. In this way I can do exactly what you need without giving a one-size fits service and one-size fits all pricing. Any document or information you send will remain confidential. When you contact me through Thumbtack I will provide you with an email to forward your document or you can post it for me on Thumbtack. If we decide to discuss your needs by phone then we can exchange a number via Thumbtack. Whether we communicate via email or phone, we can keep this documented on thumbtack if you want. A first short consultations by phone is free. As needed, I enjoy getting to know clients as needed so that I can offer them exactly what it is they want. I aim for personalized service and I am very thorough. The idea in communicating is for me to get your work done expediently and help you choose only the services you really need and not more than. One of the great joys I have is helping people succeed!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have 30+ years of experience working with professional, students and colleagues in a traditional University, online & in consulting. I have a PhD in science from Ga. State University and an MBA/ Economics from Ga. Tech. I had additional training at UPENN and the University of Arizona I have been a research and teaching faculty at Case Western Reserve University as well as online. I have experience working across disciplines, including social sciences. I have more than a few publications. I have strong writing, quantitative skills and experience with qualitative research. I have experience with granting and career advising/coaching. I have given over 50 presentations and have facility with power point. I excel with helping students and professionals with writing, coaching and/or intervening on technical projects, dissertations and research projects to help improve them.
