I have 20 years of experience as a professional writer and have always enjoyed helping others. I can help students improve their writing and make the experience enjoyable. A former newspaper writer, I now work in the human services field.

I believe in coaching students to write well through a series of simple step-by-step revisions to their writing that guarantee gradual improvement. For instance, this process often includes the following steps. Revision 1: Be specific in your writing with details to make it more interesting; Revision 2: Use strong action verbs; Revision 3: Show what's happening, don't tell; Revision 4: Reduce clutter in your writing; and Revision 5: Vary sentence structure and length to create interest.

By teaching writing one step at a time, getting better becomes much less overwhelming than when a student is trying to learn several things at once. The step-by-step process also allows several different opportunities for improvement and encouragement. It makes success more attainable and success is fun.

For students facing an upcoming deadline for a writing assignment, we can also do a fast version of this process with fewer steps of revision if necessary. This will still allow the student to learn to write better with each writing assignment he or she completes and it will make the process of writing easier and less stressful.
