Paper/Rock Writing Consultation offers editing services and writing consultations for organizations, but it is not a “writing service” for student papers. In other words, Paper/Rock Writing Consultation will NOT write student essays, but will empower students to write, research, and edit their own work for optimal success. Specific grades cannot be guaranteed. However, I can provide writing strategies and lessons to help strengthen skills.

Paper/Rock Writing Consultation is also not a “content mill.” I am the sole proprietor and when you sign up for a project, I carry it through myself, without sending it off to several different writers and editors, each with different styles. I work directly with you from beginning to end and I aim to offer a personalized experience that is thorough, thoughtful, consistent, and accurate.

Services, Rates, and Other Policies

–In-Person Help with Writing for Students and Graduate Students in the Snohomish County, WA Area:

$50 per hour with strategies for drafting, editing, brainstorming, developing content, avoiding plagiarism, and revising. Specific grades cannot be guaranteed, but I can help you strengthen your skills and build confidence.

For graduate students, I can also offer a “practice defense” of a dissertation or master’s thesis. Typically, this kind of defense includes an outside observer from another department, who is allowed to ask questions.  Having successfully completed both a master’s thesis and a dissertation defense, I could offer an “outside observer” perspective to help you prepare.

All in-person meetings will take place in public spaces such as libraries and coffee shops in the City of Snohomish, WA; the City of Everett, WA; and the City of Mill Creek, WA.  Or, I can meet online through free video-conferencing technology that allows for screen sharing in “real time” and session recording.

–Online Help with Writing for Students and Graduate Students:

Email me your drafts and I can return them with detailed comments and advice for revision.  These kinds of papers will typically only take me an hour or two at a rate of $50 per hour, but they might not be returned to you on the same day that you send them. Depending on how many projects I’m working on at one time, it might take 24-72 hours to return these kinds of papers.   Any papers over 20 pages typed, may also take longer to return.

Dissertations and masters’ theses could take 2-4 weeks, depending on the length and the amount of comments/revision advice needed.  Contact me to schedule a free consultation to determine the exact price and length of time it will take me.   As an example, a 200-page dissertation would cost around $500, depending on the amount of help needed.
