About Liz

I find that schools today do not provide as much grammar and writing instruction as they did years ago, so many students struggle with writing papers. I break down the process into simple, easy steps so that writing essays and research papers for school becomes less intimidating. I also give detailed comments and corrections on all papers, which is the only way for students to improve their writing. My students gain not only the fundamental skills needed to becoming better writers, but also the increased confidence in their ability. My greatest reward was when one of my students, who I helped all throughout high school, called to tell me she received an A in her freshman writing class!

I work with students on organization, sentence flow, reasoning, word choice, grammar, punctuation and overall sophistication. I have been helping middle school and high school students with their essays and papers for seven years. I also help high school seniors find their voice for their college application essays. From concept to execution, I work with seniors to create insightful, creative personal essays that will capture the attention of admissions officers. I have a BA in Communications from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA in Marketing from New York University's Stern School of Business. Prior to tutoring full time, I worked for ten years in marketing creating direct mailings for Reader's Digest and Citibank.

I am able to assist students with English class writing assignments, college application essays, and SAT/ACT essay sections. I have a 24 hour cancellation policy. Contact me if you need help with a paper for school or just want to become a better writer! I can meet anywhere in NYC that is convenient for you. I also meet students in Westport, CT.
