Lisa's work is outstanding. She is a careful editor, an excellent writer, and thoughtful in her revisions. I have not only read her independent work, but currently have her assisting me on a book and several articles.Jun 7, 2013
I had the honor of supervising Lisa Steffek when she worked as a writing consultant at the University of Texas Undergraduate Writing Center (UWC), the largest and busiest writing center in the country (with approximately 11,000 visits a year from writers across all disciplines). As Program Coordinator, I was responsible for the day-to-day running of the writing center, including the training and supervision of the consulting and administrative staff. Over the course of the time that she worked there, Lisa conducted 256 forty-five minute one-on-one writing consultations with UT undergraduates. She was a reliable and committed member of our staff, while at the same time impressively maintaining a high GPA and finishing the dissertation for her doctoral program. In addition to her exemplary job performance, she continually delighted me with her lively mind and rare perspective. Her piercing intelligence and sweet nature are a rare combination and set her apart as one of our finest writing consultants. Extremely highly recommended.Jun 24, 2013
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $60 an hour, and I am fast and efficient in my work. I take my editing services very seriously. I am always available, free of charge, to answer questions about edits or comments I have made.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I first like to understand what type of writing project or academic area for which the customer is writing. I always ask my clients if there are rules and restrictions to their writing assignment as well as their expectations.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I obtained my Bachelor of Science, Master of Arts, and Doctor of Philosophy in a program which required skilled academic writing. During that time, I worked as an undergraduate teaching assistant for writing intensive classes and as a tutor for the university's undergraduate writing center. In law school, I served for two years on a legal journal.
