About Jan

For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with the written word. From childhood games of Scrabble, to long hours spent with good books, to publication in national magazines, I am proof positive that hard work and dedication can pay off. After studying at both The New School and Columbia University in New York City, I have published essays in More, Atlanta magazine, and Good Housekeeping, where my work was given the only two page Blessings column ever, in addition to being distributed in an international anthology.

I also write, proofread, and edit for private clients. Among the projects I have worked on are resume cover letters, fundraising letters, and pitches for new business.

As someone whose greatest pleasure in life is discovering misspelled words, (Ceasar salad, anyone?) I can help you correct all of those errors that spellcheck missed. In addition, I write with a clean, crisp style, eliminating unnecessary words and ensuring that your work is consistently clear and concise.

While I am available to travel within ten miles of my home, much of our work can be done remotely through document sharing. I also have a twenty-four hour cancellation policy, so please let me know in advance if you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you craft sparkling prose. I respond to all tutoring requests within twenty-four hours.

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

I am a freelance writer and editor whose work has appeared in More magazine, Good Housekeeping, and other national publications. Additionally, I write and edit for private clients and have worked on projects as diverse as marketing campaigns and pitches for new business. And, as a mother of two children, tutoring comes naturally to me - I have basically been doing it for over twenty years.
