About Blair

I'm a dedicated and enthusiastic tutor and an honors graduate from Princeton University who wants to get your child excited about reading and writing. I'm an experienced adjunct college instructor, teaching college essay writing at several colleges and universities.

As a creative writer with my M.F.A. in Fiction from NYU, I like to bring stories and articles to a session to keep students interested in their reading. I use writing exercises, games, and a strong sense of outlines to encourage organization along with creativity.

I've worked as a tutor for a number of agencies, teaching SAT prep, GED prep, PSAT prep, and one-on-one writing and critical reading.

I've worked as an editorial assistant in the offices of many literary magazines, including Ploughshares and The New Yorker. I'm also a published writer myself, with short stories published or forthcoming in Descant, The Red Rock Review, The Allegheny Review, The Armchair Aesthete, Quality Women's Fiction, The Best Young Writers and Artists in America, and elsewhere.

Exceptional in every way — Blair H is a dream tutor. In the past, our daughter often got lost in reading: focusing on minor points, losing the trajectory of arguments. Blair has an uncanny knack for picking perfect texts to analyze -- from The New Yorker, the Atlantic and so on. Our daughter has been improving like mad, and is relishing the process. Blair loves reading and writing (she's a published writer herself) and c ...
