    Heather is fantastic! She has tutored me with various types of papers (research, technical, personal reflection, resume) in a number of university courses. She is always courteous, thoughtful, and professional! I can count on Heather to provide solid suggestions and point me to great resources. She is creative, wise, concise, and thorough. She helps wherever I am in the writing process, from pre-writing to polishing. I highly recommend her and will call on her skills in my next college courses. Top notch!


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

We'll start with looking over the assignment and what you've already written and identifying goals for the session. Next, we'll outline your essay / letter / composition. We'll choose one section that you particularly want help with and work through it together. My goal is to give you the tools and confidence that you need to tackle the rest of your assignment on your own, but I am happy to work with you until the end if needed.

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

I have a bachelors degree in elementary education, and taught for eight years. I also tutored at my college writing center for 3 years.

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


How did you get started teaching?

Teaching has been my dream job for as long as I can remember! In middle school, I got my start by teaching piano lessons. Since then, all of my jobs have been related to teaching in some way. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I was a camp counselor for highschoolers, a writing tutor for college students, and a classroom teacher for first, second, and fifth graders.

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

Find a tutor who is efficient. No one wants to spend longer than they need to on homework.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Before you meet with the tutor, determine what your goals are for the session. What are the things you need help with that you are not currently confident that you're able to do on your own?
