About Ilse


Bio

I love books, all books (OK, don't tell anyone, I like some better than others...!) Always an avid reader, I made sure to stay close to books throughout my life, studying English literature in undergraduate and graduate school and working in various publishing jobs since graduation. I'm passionate about the written word and excited to inspire others to be passionate about reading and writing too.

These days, I teach community college pre-freshman and freshman composition and reading courses...

I love books, all books (OK, don't tell anyone, I like some better than others...!) Always an avid reader, I made sure to stay close to books throughout my life, studying English literature in undergraduate and graduate school and working in various publishing jobs since graduation. I'm passionate about the written word and excited to inspire others to be passionate about reading and writing too.

These days, I teach community college pre-freshman and freshman composition and reading courses and tutor one-on-one writing and language skills, literary appreciation and analysis, and creative writing to K-12 students (some are homeschooled and others mainstream). For improving writing skills, I teach the Institute for Excellence in Writing program which comes highly recommended by homeschooling and non-homeschooling parents and teachers.

I like to think that I have a brain that is wired for literary analysis and academic and/or creative writing. I love literature and close reading and investigative/critical thinking makes the texts just come alive. I have worked side-by-side with writers to improve their writing skills, to help them get across what they want to communicate in the best way possible, and to keep them motivated and interested in expressing themselves through writing.

Shoot me a message with what you're looking for from a tutor and we can work together to get you going to wherever it is that you'd like to go!
