About Jan

Hello, my name is Jan, and I'm a professional writer and editor who knows how to maximize your precious time. I'm a pleasant, experienced tutor in English composition, creative writing, essays, fiction and nonfiction books, and business writing. College and graduate school applications and essays are a specialty; I've helped many students gain entry to prestigious universities. As for my education, I have an MBA from Harvard Business School, a BBA in Finance from the University of Texas at Austin, and a certificate in writing from UCLA. I've also taught at the UCSD Writers Conference and other venues. I love to share the magic and craft of both writing and business--my twin passions--at any grade level, as well as for adult learning. I can work with you in person or online. Wyzant has an excellent online video tutoring system, or I can work with you by email and phone. In fact, I teach and coach students and adult learners around the world.

In English, I love the power of communication and the written word. I have ten fiction and nonfiction books to my credit--some published by top New York publishers--along with many articles published in well-known consumer and travel magazines. I can help you with most any writing project, including business writing, university application essays, novels, nonfiction books, and business plans. If you've ever dreamed of writing a book, not only can I help you with writing and editing, but I can also offer guidance in traditional publishing, self-publishing, and marketing of both print books and ebooks.

One of my specialties is tutoring ESL with an emphasis on conversation, including high-level business and cultural communication. For ESL, multi-hour sessions in the field are available for rapid hands-on learning.

In Business Management, I have strong management consulting experience wth Deloitte, and I've written startup business plans for myself and others that have raised millions in venture capital. I teach business at the undergraduate and graduate level. Student and adults are welcome. I can also help with career development, resume writing, and business plans to start a business or raise funds.

Finally, if you feel overwhelmed and need a sherpa--a guide to lead your trek through life and keep you on task--I can help with coaching sessions. For a limited number of select individuals, I offer coaching sessions in business and writing, sharing high-level resources and life management skills. My goal is to help you achieve your dreams.

No matter where you are in your academic, writing, or business career, I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals with a healthy dose of laughter and positivity. Thank you, and I hope to hear from you soon!

UPDATE: I will be working in Austin, Texas from December 14 to January 9, and returning to Los Angeles on January 10. Please message me to arrange sessions in either location or via online services.
