In addition to an undergraduate degree in English, I proofread and edit college textbooks and research publications as well as novels and short stories.

Hi!

I look forward to meeting and working with you. I have tutored and taught at the college level and also have many years as an academic advisor for multiple universities at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. I enjoy helping students to find their niche and exceed their own expectations.

In addition to an undergraduate degree in English, I proofread and edit college textbooks and research publications as well as novels and short stories.

I worked in higher education for twenty years including more than seven years of transfer undergraduate admissions and graduate admissions at the University of California-Riverside, and Georgia Tech. In these roles I read hundreds of personal essays and presented workshops on what to do, and more importantly not do, when writing essays to the college of your dreams.

If you are interested in finding out if your needs and my skills are a good match, contact me! Right now I am only tutoring online, and primarily in the late afternoon and evening hours. Once established we can find a schedule that works well for both of us, which could include in person meetings.

Awesome writing Coach

Lisa helped my daughter improve the clarity, grammar, and style of her writing. They worked on avoiding wasted verbiage, how to improve the flow and logic, and really what I would call artistry. Every essay my daughter writes for school has a word count limit. With Lisa's help, Maddy is learning to compose essays that say everything she wants, while staying under the given word limits, and they are still written elegantly. It's impressive.
