Daniel Bormes Writing Tutor


About this tutor

With personalized, empathetic, and expert help in all areas of writing and literature, I can guarantee an improvement in your writing ability. 

I have degrees in both English and History from Loyola University Maryland where I was awarded a number of departmental writing prizes. Currently, I am enrolled at Sarah Lawrence College earning a Master's in Creative Writing in Fiction on a scholarship I received based on the strength of my writing. 

I have been tutoring, proofreading, and editing for over half a decade and have helped a diverse array of writers, with a myriad of goals, improve their GPA's, get into fully funded graduate programs, and earn publications in prestigious literary magazines. I always prioritize the needs of the students, and offer help with compassion and respect. 

I am totally confident that, through our tutoring sessions, you will become more dexterous around language, more comfortable with analysis, and emboldened by the opportunity of the blank page.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We first look to establish their goals with regards to their work, and areas where they hope to improve. During this process, we get to know each other. I want to understand where they are coming from on a more macro scale, and where they hope to be. This will help us explicitly establish what kind of tutor they want and I will adjust to whatever needs they have. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have degrees in English and History from Loyola University Maryland and I am currently enrolled at Sarah Lawrence earning a Master's degree in Fiction. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.


How did you get started teaching?

I first got into tutoring when college classmates asked me to look over their papers. What began as favors for friends turned into a part time cottage industry, in which I helped fellow students in subjects ranging from English to History to Sociology, to Philosophy. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students with a wide array of goals and skill levels, from young undergraduates trying to make it through an entry level college course, to full time writers and academics striving for publication and acceptance into prestigious graduate schools. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Always hire a teacher who behaves with respect and a radical openenness to your work and identity, who treats the process of learning as the exciting experience it is, and takes you and your work completely seriously, no matter the skill level.
