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 standardized tests like the SAT or ACT
* 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.
