About Xeni

My love of teaching runs tandem with my interest in mentorship. I have been tutoring and mentoring junior writers for over ten years, and have been writing professionally for almost fifteen. I graduated with Distinction from the University of Glasgow with an MFA in Creative Writing, and from there taught AP and Honors and Language and Composition at BASIS, a renowned college preparatory charter school based in Arizona. My students carried a 97% pass rate, with most earning scores of 4's and 5's. My particular interest is in teaching the essay, and its various forms, but I am also open to private lessons in creative writing and in helping students develop work toward publication.

Since each student's needs and goals are different, I customize each lesson to the needs of the particular individual. It is important to me that my students have fun while feeling challenged. It is also important that they see regular and measurable points of incremental growth, and for that reason I will be retaining work so that we can periodically review to see how far you've come. I give lots of carefully considered written feedback - and key to your growth will be your determination to succeed. That means reading and absorbing that feedback, and then making an active point of incorporating it into each new assignment.

I can help you with AP English Language and Composition skill building, AP Exam Prep, English Literature, Writing, Composition, Rhetoric, Argument, SAT Writing Prep, College Entrance Essay advising and editing, Vocabulary, Creative Writing lessons, and provide manuscript development/advice.

I have flexible hours, generally from 9 am to 9 pm, but contact me if you have a special circumstance and we can discuss your particular situation. I prefer to do in person lessons. I require 12 hours cancellation notice.

I look forward to working with you and helping you succeed in your goals.
