I’m so grateful to have worked with many amazing scholars. Here are some of their kind words.

Thank you VERY much for your detailed edits… Your comments/edits/suggestions continue to be incredibly valuable. I will most definitely be sending you future chapters.

I highly recommend the editing services of Elise Fast. She is professional, accurate, precise, and always adheres to deadlines. She is also extremely supportive and provided encouragement at a crucial time. Elise is a partner you can truly feel at ease with. She is excellent, and any student, faculty member, or writer would be fortunate to work with her.

After several attempts and some bad luck, I found Elise and she was a godsend!

Elise replied to my first inquiry email within the first 24 hours. Unlike other editors, she was patient to answer all my questions regarding collaboration on a big undertaking—a dissertation. She provided prompt constructive feedback for the chapter I sent her as a way to see how well we could work together. After seeing what she did for my literature review chapter, I knew Elise was the one who could help take my dissertation to the next level.

Elise is professional and she never failed to deliver what she promised. She sent me her edited chapters within the time frame she proposed and her edits were thorough. Elise paid close attention to formatting details and grammar. She looked at my writing holistically but also from the bottom up. She would also give me her suggested ways for editing certain sentences and paragraphs so I can learn to be a better writer. Not only did I enjoy reading Elise’s comments, but in fact, I eagerly looked forward to receiving her edits!

And it turned out that I passed my dissertation defense with no edits needed! This is how good Elise is.

For those who are on a tight graduate student budget, Elise asks a reasonable rate. You get more than what you pay for! It is totally worth every penny.

My experience working with Elise was positive, pleasant, and simply wonderful. I highly recommend Elise for any editing work. Your work is in good hands if you choose Elise!
