A lot of people think that a resume doesn’t need an editor to look at it. From my 20+ years of editing the resumes of my students, I find that every resume benefits greatly from my editing.

Most people don’t know how to write a good resume. I’ll talk to you for one hour to get all yours skills and accomplishments.  Then I’ll write your resume. I’ll continue to revise your resume until you’re 100% satisfied.  I have a high success rate in writing resumes that secure interviews.

I also offer a free resume evaluation.  I’ll give you a candid review of your resume’s weaknesses and strengths.  Then you can decide if you want me to edit or rewrite  it for you.

Cover Letters:

I find that even the smartest people can have trouble writing a cover letter.  They don’t know how to “blow your own horn.”  I’ll make sure your letter accurately presents your job skills and personal attributes, and explains why you qualify for the position.

A cover letter is always sent with your resume, even when you’re sending the resume via email.


I have proofread over 80 posts for a financial services blog.  You can view the blogger’s evaluation of my proofreading skills on my “Testimonials” page.

Don’t publish your posts without first subjecting them to my expert proofreading skills. My rates for proofreading blogs are extremely reasonable.


I’ve been a university instructor for over 25 years.  I have academic expertise in history, special education, teacher education, and educational psychology. I combine subject knowledge with strong English editing skills. I’ll make sure your journal article or book is readable, compelling, and free of errors.

I won't rewrite your manuscript or journal article; I'll edit it. I give you complete creative control. I taught ESL for years and have experience editing manuscripts/journal articles written by non-native English speakers.

I’ll also edit your manuscript to ensure that it follows a specific style guide, e.g., APA style, Chicago, or MLA.  I make sure your article meets the unique requirements of any academic journal.  I have fast turnaround time and flexible payment options.
