About Armin

I'm the father of three and I've been writing professionally for more than 20 years. When I first started out, the words came easily. But after I'd been doing it for a few years I came to realize that writing isn't easy. Sure, there are a few people who have a natural gift. But for most of us, there's no magic pill; translating thoughts into words on a page takes hard work and commitment.

I'm convinced that while not everyone can be a great writer, everyone can be a good writer--and I can get you there. I take great pride in helping clients and others I've worked with find their unique voice and express it in a way that makes the reader want more.





I have studied the language extensively and have worked with many students helping them with both spoken and written Russian.

I've written/co-written/ghostwritten 25 books and have edited and book-doctored (re-writing and giving new life to books that had been rejected by a publisher) many more. Topics ranged from parenting and job hunting to advertising and brain chemistry. I've also written hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles for publications as varied as Newsweek, The New York Times magazine, Parenting magazine, Men's Health, and Sports Illustrated.

I have two young adult children and one middle schooler. I've worked with them on their writing from kindergarten through college. In addition, I have tutored/coached several high school grads through their college application essays. They all got into their fist choice, including Dartmouth and U.C. Berkeley.

Before you hire me, let's set up a phone call so I can take a look at some of your writing and hear about your goals and objectives. After that, each of us will have enough information to decide whether we're a good match. I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Writing

As an award-winning, professional writer with more than 20 years of experience, I've penned books and literally thousands of columns and articles. I've also helped students of all ages and abilities improve their writing.
