I'm an easygoing, experienced, and creative coach (please review my feedback). For the past few years, I've worked with doctoral candidates, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as high school seniors writing their college essay applications.
It is with pride that I tell you my students have gone on to Berkeley, Colorado College, Johns Hopkins, NYU, Oberlin, Pratt Institute, Santa Clara, Sarah Lawrence, Stanford (early action), UCLA, UC San Diego, University of Virginia, University Honors College at the University of Pittsburgh, University of Puget Sound, Yale (early action) and many other wonderful schools.
In the past, I've taught Advanced Screenwriting at USC, business and personal writing at DeVry University, high school English and speech and public speaking and acting to adults. I continue to lead college essay writing workshops as well as memoir writing workshops. As a writer and member of the Writers Guild of America, I consult with professional writers as well.
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 to draw from, permitting me to customize each session.
My students are surprised at how quickly the time goes when we work together. I refuse to be bored, and I know you'll benefit from my insistence that the work be stimulating. I guarantee you will learn many writing tips which will quickly improve your work, and that you will feel more confident as you face your next assignment.
