I enjoy working with students of all abilities, guiding them to express themselves effectively and eloquently: helping students write compelling application essays (for boarding school, college and graduate school) is most gratifying. I enjoy tutoring English grammar and writing, helping people discover and enhance their authentic voice and communicate their ideas and opinions in a coherent and articulate manner. Essential to this endeavor is the robust use of a thesaurus, correct grammar and syntax.
I graduated from Duke University with a B.A. in English, and was honored to be the candidate chosen by the English department to spend a year at the University of Warwick. Duke offered an excellent summer course in English literature at Oxford University, and I took advantage of that opportunity as well.
In my professional career, I have done extensive writing, proofreading and editing. My first job after college was an entry level position at a television station (the NBC affiliate in W. Palm Beach, FL.) where I quickly learned about production and earned an assortment of assignments. These projects included writing and producing public service announcements, consumer reports, weekend news stories, and ultimately, creating, writing and producing a daily news program which aired immediately before the Today show on NBC. I have worked in financial services (in NY and London) which entailed writing correspondence and research reports. As an executive and personal assistant to several CEOs, my duties included extensive writing, proofreading and editing personal and professional correspondence, documents and creative writing projects, some of which were published.
When not tutoring, I enjoy yoga, swimming, rowing and especially golf.

My daughter needed some help writing an essay. Joslyn was able to schedule a session with her that day. My daughter said that the session was very helpful. We would recommend Joslyn and we would definitely use her again.
