She was quick to respond to my messages and we were able to come to an agreement on both price and timeline for completion. I just needed my thesis edited for grammar and punctuation, but she found a few other mistakes I was not aware of. Upon completing her edits, she wrote up a summary of the results as well as a list of things that I should be on the lookout for in my document. After her edits, she was able to be contacted by phone for clarification and last minute questions. Overall I thought my thesis was well edited for a fair price. The meaning is still there in my own words, but now the grammar is correct.

My friend Joel was the most patient, tolerant and understanding professional I have worked with. He was very accommodating and a great motivator. It was my pleasure working with him. He was able to help me develop my thoughts and research in an academic and logical manner. I would recommend Joel to anyone that's in need of a proofreader and a great editor. Thank you Joel for all your help. I don't feel I could have earned my master's degree without his assistance. Many thanks!!!

Diane is great! She communicates well and turns around projects in a timely manner. Her proofreading and editing skills are excellent even when the original document is poorly written or about an odd topic. I love working with her!

    Over the last 2.5 years, David Gertler has helped me edit a book I am writing about chess. As a philosophy professor, I have had 12 books published in the last decade (mostly new editions of textbooks), and so I have extensive experience with editors, proofreaders, compositors, and so on. Mr. Gertler's work has been exemplary -- helpful, insightful, and prompt. He has done research for me, improved my prose, and noticed apostrophes that were backwards. He has marked up around 35 different chapters (sometimes multiple drafts), totaling several hundred single-spaced pages. I have agreed with upwards of 90% of his suggestions, which might be a record in my experience. He is one of the very best.

      Wonderful job on scientific papers and abstracts! Very proficient in English sentence structure and vocabulary. Always a quick response back. Markings left on paper to show changes. Would happily use again and recommend to anyone needing some proofreading!


      I've been writing, editing, and proofreading for more than 20 years, not including all the business and legal writing that I've done. I do all kinds of projects, but I've mostly been copywriting, proofreading, and editing for a major publisher of medical and nursing books and journals ... print and electronic marketing pieces. My business is great because I am very conscientious and dedicated to meeting deadlines. I hope you'll choose me to assist you!
