I believe that everyone can write. As a tutor, I find great satisfaction in helping other writers learn how to become more confident and achieve their goals in written self-expression. To that end I teach in a way that emphasizes a writer’s strengths.
In my 15 years of teaching and tutoring experience I have learned that most writers are uncomfortable reviewing and revising their own writing, yet these are the most important steps to writing well. To achieve that goal, I ask questions about a writing project and request drafts in order to gain a sense of the project’s goals. We then proceed to attain those goals through dialogue, review and drafting. A typical tutoring session for a short essay will ideally span two one hour visits with exchange of drafts by email in between the two meetings.
