Metroplex did a super job writing 3 resumes and 2 cover letters. They just didn't turn out the resumes they used my input to fine tune each one for my exact needs. When you compare prices for what they did for me I doubt you will find a more professional service. Ann and Phil put a lot of work into my resumes and they are worth every penny!

Rebecca was great with taking my old resume and enhancing it for me. Looks like Thumbtack wants me to write a novel, but I will not, Rebecca did a great job.

Top notch! Larry called when he said he'd call, he delivered all materials on time, and he was a pleasure to work with. This is NOT just a resume writing service. He is a teacher in how to present yourself to employers. Are there 6 stars?

Samara was my tutor when I was in 8th grade. I was studying to get into a private high school and I needed help preparing for the entrance exam. Samara primarily helped me study for the two math exams that were in the test, but she also helped me with the vocabulary/English section. I am not a big fan of studying for exams in my free time, but Samara made our time together fun and stimulating. She helped me maneuver through the tricky waters of algebra and geometry, and I was surprised to realize that I actually enjoyed doing it. My entire family grew to love Samara and we all loved when she came over to tutor me. She helped me get into private school and I am forever grateful for her help. Samara is a phenomenal tutor and she is simply a pleasure to be around. I highly recommend Samara for any tutoring needs you may have because she is the best.

Karen is amazing, professional, and a wonderful person all around! I am sometimes a bit hesitant to reach out to people on Thumbtack because of the unknowing factor. Karen immediately put all of those worries away when I first contacted her. She followed up with an email, then requested permission to send a text which led to me contacting her on the phone. I was recently involved in a legal matter and needed to have a professional proofread my legal documents before I submitted it. Karen listened to me on the phone for over an hour to understand the background story of what I was writing about. She took her time with me and in a warm and caring way asked specific questions in order to gain a better understanding of the situation at hand. This was an emotional document I had to submit and she stayed on the phone with me and listened and was patience. Because how legal documents go, it took about 2 weeks until I could give her the actual document to proofread. Throughout these 2 weeks she kindly sent text messages a few times to follow up and to check in how I was doing. When I finally gave her my document, she had it proofread and returned back to me within 48 hours. She followed up with a text and a phone call to see what I thought. She trusted me to pay her, even though my work schedule put off paying her for a few days. After I paid her, I followed up a few days later with a change I needed to make in my document. She responded to me promptly, (within minutes) with help. She also told me that if I ever needed anything to give her a call and to let her know how it all works out. I HIGHLY recommend her services. She is a wonderful person, negotiated price with me and gave me a flawless document that I felt at peace submitting. Thanks Karen!! :) (Sorry for all the grammar mistakes in this review).

My husband Jay last minute to help my husband with a writing project. We gave him a very short timeline to have the work completed (next day) and he delivered an amazing paper. He is truly good at what he does. We will definitely use him for future projects and recommend him to others.

Working with Melanie was wonderful! I came to her since I needed help in improving my SAT Reading and Writing scores (which they did!), and after a few sessions, I definitely felt ready for the test. The sessions took place in her home, which was nice and cozy. Melanie was great at giving feedback on my essays, and I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a good SAT English tutor.

      Emily Walsh's resume writing helped me get my current job! Updating your resume can be a daunting task when you decide to begin looking for a new job. Thanks to Emily and her amazing writing skills, I was able to focus on looking for jobs instead of spending countless hours and the stress of resume writing. Highly recommend working with Emily. I will definitely be working with her again when I need my resume updated!

      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.
