"Akiko is deeply committed to meeting the needs of her clients, and with her editorial services, I was able to revise my academic book manuscript to suit my publisher’s requirements. She helped me to improve the language and clarity of style, to reduce ambiguity, and to fix grammatical and typographical errors. I appreciated her commitment to timelines and her professionalism when discussing the possible scope of services she could offer. This gave me a sense of assurance that she would provide high-quality services. I will definitely recommend her services to my research colleagues."
"Before I started working with Akiko on my dissertation, I was overwhelmed with the amount of work I needed to do; but with her on my side, the stages of drafting, writing, and revising were made substantially easier. She had a clear idea of what I was trying to say, and her feedback helped me to present my arguments in the clearest and most convincing way possible. Working with Akiko, I also learned a good deal about language and learned to spot mistakes, both structural and stylistic, by myself. Thanks to her, my writing became more structured and focused, and one dissertation reviewer even said that the text was flawless!" @MelanieSindelar
"I hired Akiko to help me improve the organization and language of my dissertation. Her suggestions made such a difference. After I worked with her, my reader commented on how the writing was tightened up and how it flowed much better! I can't thank her enough."
"I had no idea what a wonderful difference in readability a good editor can make before I found Akiko. I've also learned a lot that I can take away for my own growth as a writer. Akiko is easy-going in nature but razor sharp in her editing skills. I highly recommend working with her."
"I worked on my graduate school applications with Akiko over numerous sessions, and she exceeded my expectations. Different from other editors I have worked with, she works diligently on the structure and logic of a piece. Thanks to her meticulous feedback and comments, my essays became much stronger, and I received an offer from my dream school. It was a long shot because it is a competitive program and my background was not a perfect fit. I believe the essay made the difference. I can't recommend her enough."
