As a writer/editor with over 25 years of experience, and an MA in Communications/Public Relations and a BA in English, I have enjoyed writing and editing for print and the Web.
College entrance essays, personal communications, newspaper articles, webpages, business writing, master degree theses, and doctoral dissertations are among the types of writing and editing with which I have lots of experience.
Additionally, I was a student writing evaluator of a collegiate learning assessment for a New York City company. In this capacity, I judged writing effectiveness, writing mechanics (such as grammar), critical analysis, and problem solving skills. All of these constitute the foundation of SAT writing, and I enjoy helping students hone these skills through SAT tutoring.
In high school I won the English award and graduated college summa cum laude.
My approach to your writing is in terms of a wordcrafter, helping you express your thoughts the way you want them to sound with attention to correct grammar, sentence structure, and the like. After all, I want to keep true to the integrity of your writing since it is an expression of you. I just add polish to your ideas.
I tend to be informal and try to make the process an enjoyable learning experience.
Hope we can work together!
P.S. I enjoy working with ESL students and recently earned a certificate in Teaching ESL!
ESL tutoring is so rewarding because students are motivated to learn. I have worked with native speakers from many different countries and they all want the same thing--to understand and to be understood. Not only do we work hard to attain this goal, but we have fun doing it. I like to establish a trusting, informal atmosphere of learning, armed with a certificate in teaching English as a second language and plenty of hands-on experience. In addition to private ESL tutoring, I have tutored through The English School in Lawrenceville, N.J. for the past three years.
