I'm an easygoing, experienced, creative teacher and coach. (Just check my feedback comments, please.) For the past few years, I've been working with doctoral candidates, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as high school seniors working on their college essays and SAT's. What has surprised me most in my latest career as a tutor, is how fascinating, diverse and fun the work turns out to be. I really had no idea! I get to meet all kinds of people and enjoy the challenge of the range of assignments that come to me.
In the past, I've taught Advanced Screenwriting at USC, Business and Personal Writing at DeVry University, high school English and Speech, and I continue to lead College Essay Writing Workshops, as well as Memoir Writing Workshops. As a writer myself, and a member of the Writers Guild of America, I also consult with professional writers.
My tutoring style is tailored to your needs, time frame and personal preference. I work hard to find just the right prompt, exercise or explanation and have a wealth of materials and experience to draw from, permitting me to customize each session.
Those I coach are always surprised at how quickly the time goes when we work together. I don't believe one can teach well without being vibrant, clear and engaging. So should we work together, I know you'll feel both energized and more confident by the end of our session. I refuse to be bored and I know you'll benefit from my insistence that the work be exciting.
Please call me to discuss your needs and how we might accomplish them together.
