“Jim is an excellent editor of English texts. His revision and suggestions greatly improved the presentation of our research. The money you invest in hiring him is fully paid back, especially considering cost-benefits. I have submitted 5 papers edited by Jim and none were criticized for  English or grammar, the opposite occurred: my texts were all considered well written. Three recent papers submitted will be published at Spectrochimica Acta A, Cell Biology, Toxicology and the European Journal Pharmacology.”

“I have used Jim's editing service repeatedly to revise the English of taxonomic research papers, and I find his revisions detailed and rigorous, with numerous idiomatic corrections making the final text more readable and allowing them to be ultimately accepted for publication. I recommend him to anyone needing the English of a scientific text revised. Indeed, although eventually a statement in your text may be grammatically correct, but the meaning might be incorrect, Jim also calls this to the attention of the author, so he provides more than just revision of the English. Although you may find other editing services charging less, I feel confident and trust the quality of Jim's work.”

University of Sao Paulo, USP


"Jim is an excellent professional, always ready to help me correct my English texts. Twice I used him and twice I was very satisfied with the results.

FORMER STUDENTS:



“Jim was my teacher during his time in Brazil. He is a man who likes his job and really cares about his students progress. I also liked Jim´s knowledge of several global problems and his deep respect for all people who lives on Earth. Since English is a global language I think these last two points very important!”

Very efficient and very didactic!”


Mariana Favero Bonesso

Botucatu, Brazil


“I had a great experience working with Jim. For almost a year we met weekly for our conversation and writing classes. In addition to his outstanding competence as a linguistic teacher, Jim has a wonderful sense of humor. I had a very pleasant time working with him. I thought interesting and amazing that I had a fun time while learning a lot of academic English. He made his classes very interesting by bringing to class a mix of interesting topics to our conversation classes. I really appreciated and felt connected to the language when we talked about non academic texts too. I felt I had a balanced experience and that gave me the opportunity to practice how to express myself to discuss both academic and everyday life issues in English. Jim also brought a great series of current academic texts from a variety of renowned researchers working with academic writing. Jim is a very reputable trustworthy professional. He arrived to class on time, and his price for classes were very reasonable. He was fair too, so when he did not arrive on time, he would not charge me for the time he was late.  

 

Jim helped me to edit and add an academic tone to texts I presented in International conferences. The last conference I went was in Vienna where I talked about cognitive psychology of adherents from different religious backgrounds converted to Taiwanese Buddhism, called humanistic Buddhism.


I find fascinating that in order to help me to express myself using a more appropriate academic language, Jim tried to understand the content of my work. More than once he asked me to explain the theory of my work so he could capture the true meaning of the text and translate accurately to English.

I think his website and work will help and benefit many people.”

“Best English classes I have ever taken. Jim has a fantastic way to teach his students, introducing the Academic English grammar required in a fun, interacting and professional format. It really helped me to improve my English, but more importantly to express myself better in internal conferences. I have a Masters in Computer Science and currently teach in an Academic setting. I took classes with Jim at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil for a little more than a year (February 2006 to April 2007). I stopped when Jim and his family moved back to the US. In the beginning I was planning to study English to develop my writing skills to write academic texts and papers in the Computer Science field, but after taking some classes I really enjoyed Jim's style so I decided to also take conversation and grammar classes. I really like his classes, so we would have classes regularly, 3 to 5 times a week. I learned a lot during this time. It really improved my English, which I was clearly able to see in the quality of my texts, where there is grammar rigor and style. I really admire Jim professionalism. I recommend him as a teacher and editor of research papers.” September 29, 2010

Jim is a great teacher who will work WITH you. He is perfect for advanced non-native English speakers who need to polish their writing skills. At the time I hired him I was applying to be a research student at the London School of Economics, and he helped me immensely. I wrote my papers in English and unlike other editors/ translators I worked with before, he actually made an effort to understand what I was trying to say, so that he could help me say it better. He is also very flexible and happy to adjust the classes to what you need at the moment.
