I had the distinct pleasure and fortune to connect with Sabrina and have her do the copy editing of my first book, ‘Chronicles: The Journey of a Legal American Immigrant’ and she simply blew me away. Her professionalism, response time and execution was second to none. She delivered the edits before the due date and her presentation was extraordinary. She made key edits that brought life to my story and made the words jump out of the pages. Sabrina was very assessable and even went as far as helping edit my bio at the back of my book which was not in the scope of our contract. This spoke volumes to me as it proved it was not just a job to her but her passion. You will not be disappointed if you solicit Sabrina’s editing services. She will be the first person I call on my next project for sure!

Amenah did excellent job. I needed to have someone edit my resume and write a cover letter to apply for a specific job. I sent my previous resume to her and she then got back to me with a few questions on it to write my resume and cover letter better. The outcome was great. I loved my new resume and cover letter. She is responsive and on time. Highly recommended.

Helen has helped me with 4 essays in the last 18 months to help with my academic and career goals. She never rewrites what I have, rather helps me get more clear on what I am trying to say. She is fast about editing and helped me all the way up until I hit “submit” on all my applications and scholarships. I got into grad school and was awarded a substantial scholarship and I have no doubt that my flawless essays helped that process. I wouldn’t work with anyone else!

I worked with Isaac recently on my resume while looking for a new job. I really wanted a new layout and to improve/polish the content and he did that and more. He is very thorough and detail oriented so you will not be disappointed. I can now say my resume stands out and is much more easy on the eyes. He had some great ideas and the improvement is clear to see.

About

Tutoring - I am happy to tailor the tutoring experience to meet individual needs. I work together with students to create a plan for tutoring that may involve outside reading and "homework" assignments - if appropriate - to reinforce material covered in lessons. I am also adept at sensing when I may need to shift teaching methods or the pace of lessons for students and I encourage them to provide ongoing constructive feedback. Translations - I have been told that my translations get to the feel and intent of the original writing, beyond simply interpreting the literal meaning. Simply put, I take great care with my word choice in order to reflect the style, tone and subtlety of meaning conveyed by the author as closely as possible. Editing - I love that part of being a good editor is being a good teacher. I make recommendations to improve written material, and if I do my job well, the client learns something from the process. For example, perhaps they will gain insight on how to: make smooth transitions between paragraphs, provide sufficient evidence to support an argument, or reduce unnecessary words for clearer, more concise sentences.
