Effective and Enjoyable Tutor

Not afraid of Virginia Woolf or math formulas!

In addition to writing the letter that led to myself winning an academic scholarship two decades ago, I have coached more than a few students through the process of writing successful college application essays.

The "judges" who read these essays may be looking over a hundred or more candidates' pieces, so YOUR words need to distinguish you from the crowd. Every sentence has to amplify the message [more]

Our lessons will involve some research, brainstorming, and writing practice. The first lesson sets up a gameplan for producing the student's first draft(s) while the lessons that follow [more]
