Tom is one of the most gifted communicators I’ve ever worked with. He’s thoughtful, strategic, asks great questions, and delivers an exemplary work product. I’ve had the opportunity to work with Tom both as a colleague and utilizing him as an external resource. He’s a joy to work with and incredibly talented.

Sometimes you need a speechwriter to help you find the words for what you want to say. Sometimes you need a speechwriter to keep you from saying things you might regret. Always you need a speechwriter to act as your first audience – to tell you what works, what doesn’t, and how to up your game. Tom Schierholz does all of that – and more.

Dr. Tom Schierholz is not simply an editor; he is a sensitive observer and interpreter. Although I have written a number of papers in English – both during and after my graduate studies in the U.S. – English is still a second language for me. Tom’s suggestions on word choice and structure (not only sentences and paragraphs, but entire chapters and papers) has helped me a great deal to sharpen and enliven my writing and communicate more effectively with English language audiences. I am always touched by his patience and sensitivity when he reads my manuscripts in English. Above all, his scholarly advice has often made me realize how my thought process in Japanese has sometimes prevented me from effectively communicating in English. I always appreciate his clear and precise style.
