Bio

Think other people can write but you can’t? When you sit down to write, do you feel you don’t know what to say? Or, think you know what to say but don’t know how to say it? Do you find grammar and punctuation mysterious? Perhaps just the thought of writing, or of analyzing literature and other texts, overwhelms you. Let me help you!

Think other people can write but you can’t? When you sit down to write, do you feel you don’t know what to say? Or, think you know what to say but don’t know how to say it? Do you find grammar and punctuation mysterious? Perhaps just the thought of writing, or of analyzing literature and other texts, overwhelms you. Let me help you!

I regularly help budding writers—and students of literature, humanities, history, and social science—raise their writing skills multiple grade levels. I have also helped countless students successfully craft personal statements and essays for college entrance and scholarships.

Every student struggles with something a little different in their writing and analytical abilities. Successful writers have learned the steps of the writing process and tailor it to their needs. By listening to you and assessing what you most need to work on, I can help you develop a writing process that works for you. I will give you strategies that will help you, and I will share “tricks of the trade.” Yes, you, too, can become an effective writer!

My Ph.D. is in literature and writing, with a strong background in American and British history. I am a published author. I have been teaching and tutoring at a major university for 20+ years. I have served as a grader for Advanced Placement (AP) exams. I also have experience writing, editing, and proofreading for businesses, so the information I share with you about what readers expect from quality writing comes from “real-life” experience in addition to my academic background.

I find it rewarding to help each individual make progress. It’s always a pleasure to see clients become more confident in their writing, or feel more comfortable about their ability to comprehend texts. Feel free to contact me with questions or concerns, or to schedule a lesson.
