I was desperate for an Algebra tutor for my son. Bonnie came to assess my son's needs and recommended a tutor best to fit them. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. We got Yoshi & he was so professional and on the top of his game that literally the next day my son aced his quiz. He went from a low D to now a high B hopefully an A by the time school finishes. My only regret is not finding The Brain Domain earlier in the year. This was my first time using Thumbtack & writing a review. I highly recommend them!!!

I am doing my masters and my writing skills are not so good however thanks to Cindy I have received A's on my papers and great feedback from my professors. Even though Cindy does not guarantee A's, I am so greatful to have found her because without Cindy guiding me through my graduate work I would of exit the program and not complete it. She is so flexible and is willing to go with me to my writing workshops and support me through my graduate studies. I highly recommend Cindy to anyone that needs APA writing style and is doing their undergrad and grad.

Ms. Davis, was very professional and experienced. She asked me questions that allowed her to completely understand my vision and was able to capture how my vision would benefit so many. Her grant proposal writing gift helped me get the funds I needed in a short amount of time. I highly recommend her and I tell everyone that I know about her and I plan to use her again in the very near future. I am so grateful to know her!

    In my 36 years of service with ExxonMobil I have had the pleasure of working with many gifted and talent professionals. Since my retirement I have pursued a second career in the oil & gas industry. This endeavor has again placed me in close contact with truly exceptional people who are devoted to their chosen profession. I am motivated and inspired by these people. They are a role model for all professionals to emulate. They provide an example of what happens when talent, dedication and a belief in ones self and their cause can do to benefit other people and organizations. Even in this category of very talented people there are those who still shine and standout from all the rest. Natasha Negahbanzadeh is one such person! In my pursuit of a new career I have cultivated numerous professional relationships with recruiters, recruiter managers and HR managers. These are all highly qualified and talented professionals. It has been a real pleasure to work with each and everyone of them. But of all of these true professional Natasha is my best and most favorite Recruiter Manger. Her genuine people skills make Natasha a real pleasure to work with. She is truly inspirational. Once you get to know her you will quickly see what I am saying is true! Natasha has two market segments that she provides professional services for. The first are people like myself who are individuals who are seeking careers with good quality companies that will provide a sound future. The second are those good quality client companies who are looking for people with a proven track record of success in their chosen profession. Natasha carefully and diligently screens all candidates for their qualifications and matches them with client companies who are in need of their talent and background. From my perspective this is a win win situation for the candidate and client company and Natasha! Natasha efforts to provide quality candidates for her client companies is truly impressive. Natasha is professional and competent in all aspects of matching her clients needs and requirements. Natasha is dedicated and believes in what she is doing! I am looking forwarding to continuing my professional relationship with Natasha and I highly recommend her and the services that she provides! Respectfully, Drake M. Wolf

    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.
