I enjoy helping students find their writing voices to create effective communications. My experience encompasses tutoring students of all ages, from elementary to graduate university levels in writing and general language arts. I have successfully helped many students edit papers and compose college applications and essays. I conduct low-stress one-on-one sessions to provide kind and sincere feedback and help. In addition, I have significant experience in the marketplace helping businesses create an array communications.
My educational credentials include a BS from Cornell University and an MBA from Northwestern University. My experience includes positions in corporate communications and marketing with responsibilities to write company newsletters, press releases and business plans. In addition, I have provided private tutoring services for many years and worked with schools to develop educational curricula.
I have enjoyed assisting many high school students climb up and over the college admissions mountain. From laying academic groundwork for successful testing, to finding a strong writing voice for exams and applications, to determining a best college program fit - I've had experience guiding the ride. I personally have visited dozens of colleges and universities on both coasts and in the Midwest. I am familiar with the college process and issues to consider. My students have attained a variety of acceptances including Northwestern, Cornell, Johns Hopkins, Berkely, UCLA, Cal Poly SLO, & American U.
I believe that early reading education requires a blend of phonetic and whole language skills. Moving forward, comprehension skills are important. But nourishing a lifetime love for reading is key to reading excellence.
SAT writing requires excellent technique, craftsmanship, and a strong personal voice. Practice and focus is important to SAT writing which requires that extra sparkle to shine. I truly enjoy coaching this subject and have helped many students improve.
The challenge of excellent writing is to find a voice that communicates clearly and expressively. I have significant experience, particularly at high school and university levels, working with writers to produce well-edited, interesting, and purposeful writing.
