About this tutor

My name is Vicki, and I tutor high schoolers, college students, and professionals in all things English. I am a graduate of Pomona College, and I am currently working on my master’s at Harvard. I am also a member of Mensa of America.  

I also offer test prep for the SAT Reading exam as well as AP language and composition. **I only tutor students ages 13 and up**

I can help with writing and grammar fundamentals, research papers, resumes, fiction/non-fiction writing, and essays (including those pesky college application personal statements!). I am skilled with document structure, grammar, punctuation, and vocabulary, which are vital when crafting anything in the written form.

My schedule is flexible, so please contact me for availability. I can come to you or meet at a central location in the greater Boston area. My tutoring rate is $50/hour. I also offer online editing and tutoring services.

Please visit my website at for more information and student testimonials. Thank you!!

I truly love nurturing each student’s inherent capabilities, especially helping them embrace the talents and creativity that they might not have known existed. Witnessing the growth and academic achievement of my students is a rewarding and very positive experience!

Each student/project is unique, which means that there is no formula to my work. I excel at determining your specific needs, then focusing on accomplishing your goals with skilled and thoughtful expertise. Collaboration and active learning are focal points to my job as writing tutor, test prep instructor, and editor.
