Hi! I recently completed my masters degree in Literature at Yale University and I have 4 years of experience teaching writing to middle school and high school students. I've also taught college writing courses for 2 years. I'm a professional writer myself and currently work for a literary agency reading manuscripts. I would be thrilled to work with you in any of the following ways:

Essay writing (persuasive, literary analysis, research etc)

English Literature


College-essay writing

Preparing for tests

I charge $25 an hour and am happy to host tutoring sessions at my house, at the library and if you live close by I'm happy to come to you!

I love working with students of all ages to help them feel confident as students, readers, writers, and communicators.

Sophie was incredibly poised and knowledgeable while tutoring. I was able to significantly improve my writing skills and understand some of the grammar rules I had been struggling with in school. She was a fantastic help while applying to colleges across the country and I felt I was a better candidate because of her teaching.

Sophie was an excellent English teacher. Class was always fun, but she wasnt afraid to push me when she knew I could be pushed. Her selection of texts was varied and her analysis was interesting in depth. Overall very pleased!

All the topics were always tailored towards my interests and I always felt comfortable with the material. I never felt pressured or scared to ask for more help and this has helped me improve my own writing skills and broaden my literary interests.
