About Lily Iona

My 30 plus years of teaching writing at the University of San Francisco (USF) and tutoring at USF's Writing Center have given me extensive insight into helping students to become better writers. As a published author (two of my novels have been accepted for publication as has my poetry collection), I bring another level to my tutoring skills. I know all of the pitfalls that we can fall into when trying to shape our thoughts into legible prose.

Now that I've retired from classroom teaching, I'm eager to use my writing skills in other capacities—tutoring, editing, proofreading, and copyediting.

I have an office in Berkeley where we can meet. I also am willing to work with students online when appropriate.

Let's talk and find out if we would be a good fit. I enjoy helping struggling writers to find their voice and to communicate their ideas in the difficult process of writing!
