Study Skills

Helping students get their writing assignments done on time is one of my specialties. First, I show students how a few minutes of brainstorming when they first get an assignment is a low-stress way to get their ideas on paper, get their brain to start working on the assignment, and overcome the blank page. Then, I teach students how to get started and budget their time so that they have time for revisions, the key to good writing. I help each student develop their own check list of grammar and style points, built on their writing weaknesses, teacher feedback, and the assignment requirements.

How do I know how to do this? Well, I was an A student in every writing class I ever took in elementary school through AP English and college level Shakespeare etc. I have a master's in journalism from Harvard, and I've been writing for a living for 20 years. I've also taken several courses on creative writing that focus on ways to beat writer's block and get your best ideas on paper.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
