About Lacy

I am passionate about reading and writing, and I want everyone to enjoy it as much as I do. I studied Literature with a focus on Creative Writing while I was a student at San Francisco State University. I was on the Dean's List every semester, and I tutored several college and high school students and have helped many students, especially those who learned English as their second language, improve their writing skills. I currently run a proofreading/editing company where I consult on projects ranging from college entrance essays to advertising copy for local small businesses.

I know improving your grade is probably at the top of your priority list. If you're partway through the semester and not sure you're going to pass I'd love to help you improve your writing and get the grade you want. I usually start by looking at previous assignments and essays and then working on helping you strengthen your writing weaknesses. Some people can create wonderful content but need help with the details. I can spot comma splices, mixed verb tenses and subject/verb confusion from a mile away. Other students may need help focusing on answering the writing prompt. It can be easy to get off-topic, so I can definitely help you focus your writing so you can answer the prompt effectively.

I am very patient and supportive. I try to make sure that you enjoy learning as much as I enjoy teaching.
