About Evan

I started teaching community college students in 2004. I also spent about five years working as a managing editor for an online journal and doing some freelance work. I've worked with all kinds of students, focusing specifically on students who need support around reading/writing development. In other words, I've worked with students who don't like English very much and who need to work hard to figure out how to write well. I also have experience working with students on their business English and creative writing skills.

I'm pretty much an introvert so I love working one-on-one with people. It gives me a chance to better understand what obstacles are coming up for folks and what kind of methods I can use to solve those problems.

I specialize in essay writing and grammar. I can help you untangle contemporary literary texts, proofread your writing, understand grammar, and generally get a better grip on your writing.

My availability during the summer months in Monday - Thursday from 11am-5pm most days. I can meet students at libraries, cafes, or other similar locations. If you need more information about a specific assignment, drop me a line.
