About this tutor

Writing is my thing. Storytelling too. I’m unique in that I have a teacher’s mind and can actually convey essential writing, storytelling and public speaking skills in a manner that is challenging, but also fun. I currently write for the newspaper with the largest circulation in the U.S. (The Wall Street Journal). I tell stories all over the country on The Moth main stage. My latest story was featured on the nationally broadcast “The Moth Radio Hour.” My students are loyal and we tend to work together as they progress through the challenges of honors classes, term papers, applications of all sort, masters and doctoral theses, novels, memoirs, personal essays and major speeches and creative or business storytelling.

I love to teach and have taught at the university level at some of the best schools in the country including Columbia University, The New School University, the City University of New York (all in NYC), Vanderbilt University in Nashville and others.

It matters. Giving someone the tools to communicate better enhances their lives personally, professionally and in every way. I’m lucky to be able to facilitate and witness the change.

    Terrance Flynn helped me get into medical school by helping me write my personal statement as well as secondary essays. I've never been great at writing essays and he helped me to be able to express my desires to become a doctor in a moving and professional way

  • Dale Hrabi

    I actually work with Terrance Flynn in a different capacity--as his editor at the Off Duty section of The Wall Street Journal. As a freelance writer who has produced a variety of copy from observational-humor lists to a fully reported cover story, he is original, funny and, with his background in therapy, brings a deeper understanding of the human condition to lifestyle and fashion stories than a typical freelancer.

    Terrance has helped me find my writing voice and to build on it. He has a unique gift for teaching and mentoring writers; writing technique comes naturally to him but his instincts for voice and storytelling make his classes truly outstanding. He also creates a safe space for writers in his workshops, so that everyone learns from each other.
