"As a consultant with Higher Ed Insight (HEI), Chad led substantial projects for my clients, ranging from Lumina Foundation to the Association of Public Land-grant Universities. In addition to editing for HEI, Chad conducted qualitative interviews with state and institutional leaders, undertook expansive literature reviews, and authored quality, nuanced reports and memos based on his research findings. He is a creative thinker with a wide range of topical and cross-disciplinary knowledge. He is an amicable and organized collaborator, a quick learner, and a completely reliable professional in whom I have entrusted clients and projects with confidence."

—Patricia Steele, Founder and Principal Consultant, Higher Ed Insight

“When I was looking for an editor, a colleague recommended Chad Anderson. It turned out that Chad was exactly the kind of editor I needed: professional and expertly. What I particularly appreciated was Chad’s readiness to tailor his service to clients’ specific needs. In my case, I was revising a paper aimed for publication. After some discussions, Chad and I formed clear understandings about how the revisions would be done, step by step. With Chad’s help, my paper received two awards and eventually was published in a good journal.”
Ke Li, Assistant Professor, Department of Sociology, Framingham State University

“Over the past three years, I’ve worked with Chad on multiple projects ranging from research articles and manuscript chapters to grant applications. With each project, he is always attentive to detail but careful not to lose sight of the big picture, namely, the key argument I seek to convey in the written work as well as the audience I want to reach (along with my budget!). Most importantly, his range of copyediting skills is rivaled only by how fun he makes the process. Chad is always enthusiastic about the work, consistently reliable despite my own shifting deadlines, and above all is willing to have a good laugh about how exhausting yet rewarding writing can be. I cannot recommend him enough.”
Casey Oberlin, Assistant Professor of Sociology, Grinnell College

“I have worked with Chad for a long time during my doctoral studies at Northeastern University. His work is very professional, fast, and accurate. His edits always helped me to create a more fluent, logical product than the version I originally submitted to him. As a non-native English speaker, I appreciate Chad’s comments and questions on my work, which have led to a clearer way to present my ideas. I am happy to continue working with him.”
Dafna Gan, Lecturer and Sustainability Coordinator, Hakibuzim College, Israel

“Chad Anderson’s editing skills are impeccable. He is a professional, pleasant, and prompt editor. Quality and timeliness are extremely important to me. I can always trust Chad with time-sensitive documents that need to be copy edited in preparation for publication.”
Simone Symonette, Performance Consultant/Learning Strategist, Eli Lilly, and Graduate Student, Indiana University, Bloomington
