I highly recommend Panthera Leo Writing and Editing! Tony was instrumental in getting me on track and focused during a job transition. He skillfully helped me with my resume, as well as initiating an overall job search plan. He even offered encouragement along the way.

Julie is fantastic- nurturing, kind, professional and a great writing tutor. Her rates are lower than average, so the value was terrific. She is always on time or a bit early. My son loved her. We used her multiple times a week as our primary writing teacher for my 6th grader who was homeschooled at the time. I recommended her to a friend who needed a homeschool tutor due to some emotional difficulty with school and she was so grateful. Julie was the first tutor that her daughter responded to positively. Julie is kind and gentle, but firm so things get done. She will bend over backward to help a student or their parents. She has a true love of both learning and of her students. She is a wonderful person to have in your home. Peaceful, kind, personable. You will be fortunate if you are able to fit into her schedule and she into yours!!

Jacqueline was my son's tutor for Advance Placement Psycology. After working with her for six weeks, his grade point average in that class went from a C to a A-. She also assisted with my son's college admissions essays. She was wonderful to work with, reliable, and very knowledgeable.

    Marc is a pro writer. He does this writing thing right. He manages to address assignments conversationally, comfortably and in a totally readable way (as a part-time editor, I see a lot of other writers who don't always write for the reader first—but Marc gets it). He's not afraid of a bit of humor, a little attitude, even (dare we use the term) snark—but always appropriately and within the context and confines of the publication, the demographic and the subject matter. I have invited him to write for publications/projects that I oversee, and that should tell you that I trust him to come through in the style and manner I need. You should too.

    Constance helped my daughter get ready for the interview process when she graduated from college and was seeking her 1st job. She helped build her resume, then gave practice interviews. She gave great advice on how to answer questions and prepared her for the types of questions to expect in the interview process. It definitely helped her build confidence and be prepared for interviews. Constance also helped me get my own resume together. As a stay at home mom, I was lacking the expertise to even write a resume for myself. We brainstormed together and built an impressive resume to get me ready for a part time job interview. I highly recommend Constance for families that need help in getting started in the work force. She is extremely professional and would be a great asset for anyone getting started in the working world!

      I recommend Marty with the highest regard. I have had the pleasure of working with this talented individual for several years. I have seen first hand how professional, detail oriented and creative this incredible word smith is in her delivery of written and digital content. Whether she is giving you a second set of eyes to review a document, resume, term paper or leading a team in designing and producing a corporate report, the end result will be dynamic!

        Bonnie is very personable, and entirely up front about her time table for finishing work and getting it back to you. She is professional in her work, not only the edits she makes but the comments she leaves within the manuscript, as well. I am 100% pleased with her performance and professional approach. I cannot recommend her enough. I fully expect to hire her in the future for more novels.

        About

        Thirty-three years of teaching middle and high school English combined with an almost OCD obsession with correct writing make me an elite proofreader and editor.

        About

        I pay attention to the structure of the words I choose in a sentence, such as "that" or "which", ensuring the word picture and the ease of reading and comprehension are equally addressed.

        About

        I do editing of any type, as well as writing, and I pay strict attention to detail. In fact, I have been known among my colleagues and fellow students as The Grammar Nazi. Editing and writing are two of my life's greatest passions, and I am serious and devoted. I have an excellent eye for grammar and sentence structure, and this has paid off in my academic successes, as well as those I have assisted in writing college papers or other documents. My editing work recently earned a client an A on a college paper. I also write resumes, cover letters, business letters, and anything else that can be written. If you hire me, you won't be sorry!

        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.
