Carol J.

13 Writing lessons

I believe she is motivated to so out of her passion for writing and teaching. As a result, the outcome is very encouraging - I was immensely proud when comparing the essay I wrote at session zero side by side with the one I wrote after session six. It was a huge difference! Thanks for your attention. This is the longest review I’ve ever posted, which probably demonstrates that I don’t hate writing as much anymore.
Donna W.

She will check his reading comprehension, improve his writing structures to be more concise and ask him questions if the sentences are not clear as they both edit and revise together. After 1 month, he has improved his writing from about 6 sentences to 1 to 1.5 page length with a good flow and he is becoming less reliant on Laurie. Laurie will continue to work with Ivan in his writing for higher writing level. Laurie is a highly experienced tutor and I would recommend anyone to her.
Lillian M.

7 Writing lessons

Gary asked me to submit one or more samples of writing before the class so that he knows where I am at. It worked well. We edited/rewrote my writing during the first part of the class. In the second part of the class, he talked about the rhythm of the writing, mixing long and short sentences to make writing flow better and introduced the concept of writing style. I am confident that over time I will see noticeable improvements by working with him.
