About Asher

Is your child having some trouble writing essays straight through, or does their argument meander? I can help.

I'm a journalist at a big Southern California paper who still remembers what a struggle it is to get into college. I had some editing help and did pretty well for myself - I got into the University of Chicago, where I graduated two years ago with honors and the best English thesis in the class. I was an editor at the newspaper (which produced guys like David Brooks and Nate Silver) so I've spent years sprucing up writing, and when you're doing that for a couple dozen kids, you quickly learn how to give a young writer goals and to keep him or her motivated.

This summer, I'd like to help a high school or college student learn how to express themselves a little better, learning to write essays that are clear, concise and actually fun to write. Because of what I do, I've got a pretty tight schedule - the news never sleeps - but I can make time after work and on weekends for as much as five hours a week. Get in touch and we can talk a bit more about what your hopes are and what you'd need from me. I'm sure we can work something out!
