About Jason

Students tell me, "I can't write."
I tell them, "Of course you can--you've already written your own story."

Writing is the process of translating thoughts into words. Skillful writing considers how readers interpret words and form their own thoughts in response as they go. For this reason, it is both the simplest and the most complex thing instructors ask students to do. Thoughts can be chaotic, and we often don't know what we are writing about until it is written. Having a guide sometimes helps with this process. That is how I'd like to help.

A fear of writing is the most reasonable thing in the world. Blank pages are so full of potential, and any words we choose to put on them never live up to our expectations. Thoughts are hardly ever as good on paper as they were in our minds. We get better though, with practice. For those afraid of writing, write.

A love of writing is also the most reasonable thing in the world. Blank pages are so full of potential, and some words we choose to put on them change lives. Sometimes, thoughts are better on paper than they were in our minds. When this happens, you learn to love writing, and you may never stop.

I am available to help with brainstorming, research, drafting, revising, copyediting, proofreading, and essentially anything having to do with the composition process. My background is in the teaching of writing, the social sciences, and statistics, and I have years of experience teaching and tutoring within these fields at the college level. I'm familiar with most formatting and citation styles and can assist with the construction of bibliographies. If you are early in your process, have research to do or don't know precisely what to write about, I can help with that as well. Let's write together.
