About this tutor

Preparing for college? Looking for tutoring support in writing at any level? Need advice on a professional or creative project? Looking to develop fluency in English? I can help. 

I have more than 20 years of experience in higher education, teaching writing classes at the college level and directing a tutoring program, and I specialize in personalized, one-to-one learning strategies. 

I'm inspired by the moments of discovery and growth that can occur when two people focus their attention on a task together. True learning isn't just about working hard (though that usually helps). It's also about getting the right kind of guidance from an experienced mentor at the right time. I'm here to provide that.

I can help you develop strategies for success with any work that involves writing, reading, or speaking--from college admissions essays to literary analysis, from preparing for interviews to learning English grammar, including ...

* Providing guidance with essays and expository writing in any subject matter at any level

* Completing applications for scholarships, internships, college, or graduate school

* Preparing for exams or quizzes in English or literature courses

* Working on personal and creative projects

* Improving general study skills and organization

* Improving fluency in English for non-native speakers

If you have other projects in mind, just ask, and I'll let you know how I can help.

    My Son attended classes with Dr John Boyd to improve Writing skills for essay prompts. Just with few classes he was able to write his essay prompt very well in the competition test. Dr John Boyd is highly qualified and knowledgeable in teaching related to anything in English. Dr Boyd very patient and really helps you understand your requirement and guide you to achieve your goal. I will recommend Dr John Boyd to anyone who wants to improve essay writing skills. --- Murali

    John is a great tutor who cares about his students. He's patient and really helps you understand what you need to do. Working with him has made a big difference in my writing for my first semester in college.

    Dr. Boyd is not only extremely knowledgeable in all things writing but he excels at teaching. He finds creative ways to educate and engage with the material, to make learning more meaningful. I cannot recommend Dr. Boyd enough, he is a fantastic teacher and mentor.


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

In our first meeting, we'll make some decisions together about what approach works best for you. I'll want to get to know some things about you and how you typically get your work done. From there, I'll help you set some goals, and we will develp a specific plan for going forward. 

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

I have a PhD in Composition and TESOL (Teaching Enlgish to Speakers of Other Languages), and I have more than 20 years of experience directing tutoring programs and working one-to-one with students in a higher education setting. This is what I do!

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with students from high school through college and graduate school. I also work with adult writers on personal and professional projects.
