“I prepared a thesis in partial fulfillment for a Master of Arts in Education with an emphasis in Teaching and Learning. My project reviewed literature and narrated a math problem solving treatment. As I submitted chapters to Jess Romaine for editing, her suggestions for revision were excellent. She could see the scope of my work better than I and brought an order to the sections that I liked. Her sense of language assisted me to communicate beyond educational terms. In addition, the cultural sensitivity of her comments strengthened the language of respect for my subjects. I appreciated the concise, knowledgeable questions and notes she left for me in my documents.
When we were fine-tuning the entire document for publication, her attention to APA citations, captions, and formatting for university guidelines was indispensable. The turnaround time was excellent and my submission passed library review flawlessly.
Jess has also edited program brochures and grant proposals for my work with San Jose Area Writing Project, as well as a revamp of my resume. I have recommended her services to colleague and friends, with complete confidence in her talent as an editor.”
