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!!!

    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!
