About this tutor

Hi! My name is Vicki, and I provide tutoring and writing services to students of all ages in all things English. I am a graduate of Pomona College, and I am currently working on my master’s thesis at Harvard. I am also the editor of the Boston Mensa newsletter, the Beacon. 

I tutor the English/Writing/Science sections of the ACT, the Verbal sections of the SAT and PSAT, and the AP Language and Composition test.

I have extensive experience crafting and editing resumes and cover letters, and I am skilled with document structure, grammar, punctuation, and vocabulary. I edit documents of 2,000 words or less. 

Currently, I offer online tutoring in grammar, reading comprehension, and every type and level of writing. Lessons are tailored to each student’s needs, from the fundamentals of writing to mastering the  personal narrative. Tutoring is available for ages 14 and up.

My schedule is flexible, so please contact me for availability. Hope to hear from 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.
