My name is Blair N. I'm a published author, a graduate student at a prestigious private college for writers and poets, an internationally-experienced K-12 teacher, a performer, a public speaker, and a ferocious writer of fiction.
My love for the English language is deep and abiding, and I'm happy to tutor anyone - from gradeschoolers to adults getting back into college. I want to impart my passion for eloquence and communication to you and your children. Through good communication and writing skills, we enhance our self-expression, and reduce the chance of miscommunication and misunderstanding - two things that are at the foundation of most interpersonal conflict.
Whether you just need to brush up on your vocabulary and grammar, want a coach for public speaking, or need someone to take a good, long look at your thesis paper, I'm your woman. You'll be glad you chose me.
I'm currently enrolled in a low-residency MFA program for creative writing - fiction, specifically. It's a program that cycles in accomplished authors and poets to teach small workshops to especially distinguished students. I will have my master's degree in 2017.
As of now, I hold a bachelor's degree in English, which I earned at Fresno State University - a college with one of the finest English departments on the West Coast. I am well-versed in a variety of literature, from myths, to Victorian classics, to Shakespeare, to contemporary fiction. I am (if this wasn't already obvious) passionate about reading, writing, and communicating.
Please contact me. I will do everything in my power to help you excel in your courses, and in life. No other subject directly enriches our daily lives, our social circles, and our self-confidence like English and the humanities. Take it seriously, and you'll be well-rewarded throughout life, whatever path you choose. My name is Blair N.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
