I am an accomplished writer, having in the last few years written two novels, a screenplay, and a master's thesis (MFA, The New School). I've critiqued the work of dozens of fellow writers in numerous, formal workshops. In a professional capacity, I've edited publications for an educational consulting firm specializing in dyslexia and dysgraphia, as well as developed an e-book program for teachers working with students with specific needs in reading and writing.
My ambition as a tutor is to help make writing fun for my students. I tailor my lessons for each student, using multi-sensory techniques and modeling strategies to suit (and help enhance) his or her individual writing style. I use a low-key approach to keep students comfortable as I gently guide them through each stage of the writing process, using confidence-building techniques to move them from goal to goal.
