I knew this was important for writing features and an overall essential skill for journalists to have. I came in with a free-write, it was a description of an experience I had at a diner. To Roberta's credit she saw something in this free-write and urged to explore 'creative non-fiction'. A couple months later I find myself with a personal essay - a piece of creative non-fiction that I'm now looking to publish. It took me many hours to write and Roberta's guidance was invaluable.
I can tell that my daughter has improved a lot in reading skills and is able to develop good strategy when reading both fiction and non-fiction books. She is now reading and writing above her grade level. We are so thrilled to have Susan as our tutor.

Jackie S. helped me work on a fiction short story, and we went through 5 of my revisions in the span of 4 weeks. After working with her, I developed a new passion for writing, and her advice and professional background helped me to put myself into my piece, and change it from an elementary style piece and into one that I never thought I was capable of writing. I got a 98% on my piece, and every single revision I made great strides in improvement.
