I have edited the best and the not so great. If you like the clarity and directness of USA Today, I can help your student son or daughter attain that level of writing skill. Some think that only the Washington Post or the New York Times boast the kind of writing you rate highly. Taking nothing away from those stand-out papers, the papers your son or daughter will be handing in would benefit from emulating the straight-forward brevity and precision of USA Today.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I have been an editor at USA Today for many years, working with writers at all levels. If you like we can incorporate some journalism techniques to the tutorials to make it more interesting, things like reviews of movies or TV shows. That's what I did and I got paid for it!!!

Reading

Reading should be enjoyable and rewarding, not a drag. I can help your child develop a deeper appreciation for reading that will get her well beyond texting and other social media shortcuts.
