I only have positive things to say. Sara clearly knows her stuff, which was evidenced by our discussion of the number of spaces after a period. For some this would be an inane topic, but it demonstrated her knowledge of mechanics. I especially appreciated the personal touch she brought to a process that could be very impersonal and mechanistic. Her support and encouragement of students at this point in the process is quite helpful. Having Sara do the editing helped reduce the stress, and her approach did so even more!

My faculty advised me to seek out both an editor and formatter to review my dissertation since I was “too close” to my work. When I handed my dissertation over to Sara, I told her that my focus was on content, not formatting. What she returned to me a short time later was a masterpiece ready to submit. The three-article dissertation was new for my university and Sara followed through on her promise to address concerns as they arose. As a result, it was approved well before graduation and I am done! Thanks to Sara, I can now focus on submitting those articles for publication in my field.

Sara has worked with our graduate and doctoral students on theses and dissertations and has edited manuscripts and conference presentations for faculty. She has an incredibly sharp eye for detail in editing and formatting, and her APA expertise is impressive. She provides caring support and guidance to all of her clients and helps us all become more knowledgable about grammar, punctuation, and other common writing issues. We continue to refer students to Sara for coaching and editing, and we enthusiastically hire her for faculty projects!

I am glad that I reached out to Sara when it was time to defend and file my dissertation. Sara took the time to speak with me about my research, inquire about how detailed I wanted her to edit my writing, and she was very encouraging to me at a time when anxiety and stress was high. She was very attentive to the minute details of APA formatting. What I appreciated most about Sara’s editorial style is how communicative she was throughout the process and how firmly she held to timelines. I strongly recommend Sara for anyone in need of an editor. She is genuine, personable, thorough, and efficient.

I recently needed an editor to work with me on the finishing touches of my doctoral thesis. As you may know, completing a dissertation is a very overwhelming and, at times, frustrating experience. The moment I spoke with Sara, I knew she would guide me through the final stages of the process. My mind was at ease. She has the team approach and I felt as if I was not alone. Sara’s work is exceptional. She is an expert as an editor. She was able to complete the editing process on my timeline, which was not long. This is important when final edits are needed in order to graduate! I highly recommend the services of Heartfelt Editor. I will be calling on Sara shortly for help with my resume and any other editing needs.
