Bio

Hi! My name is Taylor, and when it comes to what TRULY drives me, I have three great loves -- people, creativity, and language. That is why I love being a writing tutor! Every day, I get to live at the intersection of my passions by helping people from all walks of life discover their inner wordsmiths and take their writing to the next level!

Hi! My name is Taylor, and when it comes to what TRULY drives me, I have three great loves -- people, creativity, and language. That is why I love being a writing tutor! Every day, I get to live at the intersection of my passions by helping people from all walks of life discover their inner wordsmiths and take their writing to the next level!

As a fundamental truth, I believe that behind all great written work is phenomenal editing-- after all, no piece starts off perfect. Therefore, what I focus on most in my tutoring sessions is A) teaching you how to build a strong foundation for your work, and B) giving you a number of “secret tricks” to QUICKLY and EASILY elevate your piece from “okay” to “A+!” Most importantly, I will show you how to break down any form of writing into into a series of small, manageable components that, when combined, make you a clearer, more impactful writer.

Regarding my qualifications, I have been tutoring for over 10 years, and have taught students ages 14-65 in the past. I have a background in journalism and communications with a focus in copyediting. In high school, I scored in the 95th percentile on my English ACT (with a perfect score in the grammar subcategory), and in graduate school, I scored within the 90th percentile on my Verbal GRE. My specialties include analytical, critical, argumentative, and persuasive essays, speech writing, research, proofreading, and SAT Prep.

I am so excited for the work that we can do together, and I cannot WAIT to get started! I am available most evenings after 6p.m., and after 1 p.m. during the weekends. Please reach out to me in order to learn more and to schedule a few sessions!
