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.

My 4th grade daughter is struggling with reading comprehension/writing and has been working with Jill for a few months. Her essay responses have improved dramatically during her latest reporting period. My daughter has ADHD - Jill accomodates her with a lot of patience, breaks and little activities for the two hour session. We are very please to provide an excellent rating for Jill and highly recommend.

Shalon recently edited a magazine article for me and did a wonderful job. She gave me excellent advice and turned around the edit very quickly. I am currently in the process of writing a book, and I have already discussed hiring her to do the edit. I would highly recommend Shalon for any writing, proofing or editing work.

Neil Grobman is a great tutor. Neil tutored me in the reading and writing portions of the SAT. We had lessons each week. He introducesd and elaborated on a different topic at each lesson. At the end, Neil assigns word parts and an essay for homework which helped to furthur expand the concepts. Neil made sure that he answers all of my questions and concerns. If he did not know the answer, Neil finds any sources that provides the answer. Neil provides an unique way to boost vocabulary, attack the essay, and complete the passage based questions. I have learned a lot from Neil and I recommend him to anyone in need of a responsible and dedicated tutor.

Leslie has been tutoring my teenager son for 2 years. Since she started, his English level, writing and reading have improved tremendously, going from below average to beyond expectations. Leslie demonstrated excellent teaching skills, being softer at times and pushing more when needed. Moreover she shown a lot of flexibility to adapt to him and his scheduled when needed and always got the work done. Leslie has been above and beyond expectations!

It was my pleasure to work with Lorrie from approximately 2010 to 2013. Lorrie was working as a Technical Editor on protocols and clinical study reports and I was a study manager. Lorrie was always professional and kind in her interactions. Her writing recommendations were very helpful and appropriate. I would recommend Lorrie without hesitation.

About

EPD was established over 20 years ago as a recruiting firm in the pharmaceutical and medical device field. It was necessary to submit convincing proposals in an effort to secure job orders or high-level searches. Strong resumes were an absolute part of the process. In addition, I am working on a novel and have extensive experience in public speaking. Writing projects: speechs, proposals, business plans, manuscript editing, resumes, short skits and story lines. Below is an example of my work: IN SEARCH OF POPPA CHAPTER ONE I was born a bastard. At least, that’s what my mother told me the last time the subject came up; in fact, every time the subject came up. At the top of her voice, she screamed, “I ain’t telling you shit! You ain’t got no damn father!” The angry shouts that followed were so loud that it was hard to distinguish between the sudden ringing in my ears or the hammering of my heart against the inside walls of my chest, in a futile attempt to jump out of its cavity. Tatemsville, Georgia is our home...behind the general store that faced the railroad tracks. Jus’ follow the dirt road on the side of the general store and then turn right at the second corner: that‘s us...along with twelve other neighboring two room-look alike- unpainted wooden shacks. Our community is a small tightly knitted village on the outer southwestern edge of Savannah where we revel in a rich, comfortable blues singing poverty with pockets as empty as a banker’s heart…maybe seven or eight pigs. Further east, on the edge of Tatemsville, is the spirited-“Holy-Roller”-church of the richest man in our village: “The Sweet Daddy Grace.” And a couple of steps away from his sanctuary, the branches of a massive Oak and a cluster of Chinaberry trees shade Mr. Leroy’s Snake Pit Tavern and a giant hole in the ground that serves as the community’s barbecue pit. Two old bed springs, covered the top of the community barbecue pit and serve as the cooking counter. And underneath...a buildup of red coals, bits and pieces of Oak logs have already burned down, simmering and glowing in the pit, making a fizzzzzing noise. Smells of cooking rabbits penetrated the air and a reddish well-seasoned sauce soaked their small bones and dripped through the bed springs giving off a char-grill fragrance mingled with a slight hickory odor that escaped in smoke drifting through the narrow holes of the springs. Nearby two hogs hang around patiently, uncomplainingly, stabbed through the heart, split open, gutted and strung up gaping and bloody, waiting for their barbecuing rendezvous.

I have been an activist almost as long as I have been a writer. I have great planning skills as well as motivational! (you didn't think all those protesters showed up out of the blue did you??) I have a gift that allows me to write in just about any genre...some I just haven't tried yet. if I am researching for a book or a documentary or for that matter working on any project I give it my all because I really love all aspects of what I do.So unlike some people who just give recycled copy and half way investigated material I will always find away to bring a fresh and exciting approach to any project no matter what role I would be given .

I hold a Master's degree in English Literature & Language from Rutgers-University. I will work with you on most any type of writing project (novel manuscripts, thesis-writing, smaller essays, book proposals, admissions essays, blog/web content, reports, etc). I'll do basic editing, write portions of your project, give you in-depth feedback and suggestions; I'll conduct outside research if necessary. How much I assist you is all up to you. I put the utmost dedication into every writing project I work on and believe that writing is best when it's a collaborative process. My experience: I've served as a Freelance Writing Assistant for two years and have worked on a variety of projects including the creation of a book proposal for a nonfiction study of African Americans settling the Western frontier and the proofreading/content-editing of a young-adult fiction novel. I also currently serve as an Editorial Assistant for Film International Magazine, where I proofread and edit content of article submissions. In addition, I write my own pieces for both the online-blog and printed-edition of the journal, while also co-authoring pieces with ESL contributors. FI is a bimonthly academic journal focusing on Film Studies. I have ample experience in writing&editing, working directly with clients to meet their goals. I am timely and efficient, and assure all clients that their projects will be completed within the deadline specified. I am also easy to get in contact with and quick to respond to emails. I make it my priority to be available for you, to take your work seriously, and I pride myself on my close attention to detail. (And as a bonus, I'm affordable! I will negotiate pricing based on how much you can afford, because I understand that writing isn't always immediately lucrative.)
