Our Mission

The Pocket-Sized Professor provides individualized research and writing support to academic, business, and non-fiction writers to ensure each work is accurate, polished, and accessible to the intended audience. PSP offers assistance at all stages of the writing process from brainstorming to finishing touches.

Our Values


The Pocket-Sized Professor strives to provide the highest level of intellectual support and effective use of resources to help writers achieve mastery of their craft. If field-specific knowledge is required, we will locate and learn the necessary information to make your work a success.


No two authors or pieces of writing are the same, and they should not be treated as such. For this reason, we offer a tailored approach to editing in collaboration with each client. Every project is a unique opportunity to produce one-of-a-kind content.


The Pocket-Sized Professor believes a writer’s work belongs to them. We promise not to disclose the content of submitted works to any third party without an author’s express consent.
