About Joan

Expert Editing & Editorial Services:

With more than two decades of proven success as a professional writer and editor of eighteen published books, as well as countless academic papers, marketing materials and business reports, my credentials clearly demonstrate the extensive experience, acknowledged expertise, and unfailing commitment necessary to help you achieve success with your project in a timely, stress-free process of respectful collaboration.

I graduated after three years from Connecticut College with Honors, and Distinction on my thesis, and did my graduate work at Yale. My reputation for outstanding skills in editing is fully established.

I would be delighted to help you prepare your manuscript for publication, submission for academic review, or personal distribution to family, friends, or colleagues. My work is focussed on ensuring that your manuscript – of whatever length and complexity – conveys maximum impact through clarity, seamless narrative and organizational cohesion, while respecting appropriate rules of grammar, syntax, and punctuation.

You will have my full attention and the timely completion of your final manuscript. Confident that working together will result in your achieving the goals you have for a successful outcome for your project, I am eager to be of service to you!

SAT Tutoring:

With extensive tutoring experience and proven success as a professional communications specialist, I'm dedicated to helping you achieve your greatest success on the English SAT, or simply focus on increasing your verbal and written proficiency in English. For the test we focus on sharpening your essay writing skills, building vocabulary, improving grammar and reading comprehension, understanding test format and developing strategies for best performance. My goal is to educate, empower, and encourage you to find and execute the best in yourself as you develop self-confidence and trust in your ability to succeed. My greatest strengths as your mentor are my ability to relate to you as unique and special individual and identify the most effective techniques for helping you achieve your goals. My professionalism, experience, skill and dedication ensure a successful collaboration. Most often asked about how I manage to be so good at what I do, I answer: practice, practice, practice! I love what I do and relish seeing the joy I have in doing it reflected in the joy I see in my students as they progress toward achieving their goals.

An honors graduate of Connecticut College after three years, who completed graduate course work at Yale University, I have tutored students in English privately and as a volunteer in the non-profit Minds Matter English writing program. Many students in the New York metropolitan area public and private schools attended my Money Matters to Kids financial literacy seminar programs in preparation for managing their financial health and well being in college and beyond. You can count on me to help you succeed – but the real success comes from you. Consider the following before hiring a tutor to ensure your greatest success: Are you serious about making this commitment to improving your knowledge and skills? The best tutor in the world can only add great value if you have the desire to improve and are willing to put in the necessary focus, time, work and discipline. I hope we can work together!
