Editing & Proofreading
I am an entrepreneur about to launch my company Legacy Cereal. During the preliminary stages of development, I hired Deirdre Higgins to help with modifying my bio. and mission statement so it would be more concise and clear. She has great skills as a writer and editor, and is very precise when it comes to grammar and punctuation. She is also very quick with the turn-around, which I appreciated. She was such a great help that I have passed her name on to my friends in the business world. NK
Writing dozens of college application essays in a short period of time was an incredibly difficult task for my son, but Deirdre helped him craft each idea into a compelling story. After reading each draft, she would articulate ways for him to improve the essays and how to infuse them with his passion, his struggle, and his pride. And in the end, his character shone through, resulting in acceptances from UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC, and Harvey Mudd College.

Deirdre Higgins is an amazing editor! I needed editing for my PhD dissertation and Deirdre came recommended to me from a friend at USC. She meticulously went over each page of my dissertation to make sure grammar, syntax, organization, and punctuation were accurate. She was highly professional, easy to communicate with, and she got the corrections back to me quickly. Thanks, Deirdre.

I took Deirdre's course "Building a Bridge to Graduate Studies" in USC's Masters Preparation Program. Deirdre provided us with comprehensive guidance on each step of the process, including topics about university selections, essay writing, and interviews. And she carefully reviewed and helped polish my personal statement essay. With that essay and the skills she taught me, I applied and got into the Post-baccalaureate Studies Program at Columbia University! Those skills are still helping me now in my applications for MA in economics programs. For students who need help to build a bridge to your dream school, I would highly recommend Deirdre's services.
