I love helping people to build confidence and reach their academic and career goals. I offer a variety of lesson types: brainstorming/outlining, writing, teaching/study, editing/proofreading, public speaking, and test prep.

WRITING: I have helped students to write, edit, and proofread high school, college, and graduate level papers. I have assisted doctoral students with dissertations in the fields of education, psychology, sociology, and religion. Likewise, I am skilled at crafting and polishing personal statements, scholarship essays, research and diversity statements, and letters of intent. I have served on scholarship and fellowship selection committees which gives me an insider's perspective on application essays. In addition, I have assisted students in writing research and grant proposals, marketing plans, scientific analyses, and cybersecurity reports. For students seeking a writing refresher, I offer lessons to review and practice grammar, syntax, punctuation, clarity, and style.

EDITING and PROOFREADING: I provide very quick editing and proofreading services. I have formatted papers in MLA, APA, and Chicago Style. I have edited various types of writing, e.g. work emails, event invitations, birthday cards, brochures, discussion posts, term papers, writing samples, cover letters, and resumes. I often complete edits in less than 24 hours (depending on the length of the document).

CAREER DEVELOPMENT: I have assisted students and colleagues with career advancement. I specialize in crafting compelling cover letters, resumes, CVs, and writing samples. I have been on university search committees, and I can provide insider's advice on answering interview questions and preparing job talks and presentations.

TEST PREP: I provide customized sessions to prepare for tests, especially ACT and SAT English, Reading, and Writing. In test prep sessions, I assess a student's responses to questions and isolate areas needing improvement. I provide personalized lessons to review topics that are most relevant for the student. For instance, I can review grammar, syntax, and punctuation rules, and I can offer practice grammar, reading, and writing sessions.

RELIGION: I am a religion professor with expertise in biblical studies, ancient history, and archaeology of the middle east. I have published a book and scholarly articles on studies in antiquity. I teach college religion courses on biblical studies, church history, Judaism, and Christianity. I have tutored students in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, New Testament, and church history.

Since I customize lessons, I welcome suggestions and resources that students or parents can provide. I respond very quickly to inquiries. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or would like to schedule a lesson!

Fabulous tutor

She helped my daughter with a college course on the New Testament. She was great. My daughter really improved her grade and enjoyed the lessons very much. She is fussy about tutors so that is saying a lot.

Karen, 12 lessons with J.

Great tutor, and very patient!

J.W. was the only tutor who agreed to edit my admissions essay last minute. I, with a lot of help from her, transformed my essay into a beautiful piece that was well organized and flowed well. Thank you again!!!

Amberly, 2 lessons with J.

Great writer

J. helped me with my writing. She did editing and proofreading for me. She was quick and fast. Corrected all my mistakes and cleaned up my paper. In the end, it looked great and I was thankful.

Zahra, 1 lesson with J.

Determined and resourceful to help improve writing

JW is easy to work with, and she helped me organize my intermediate college essay to develop its challenging arguments. She delivered consistent lessons to explain how to revise the weaknesses in my assignment to improve the strength of my claim in detail and overall. Students will certainly appreciate her tutoring skills as I have.

Gabriel, 4 lessons with J.

Highly skilled. Very nice and natural person.

J.W. helped me to write and organize my marketing plan assignment. She just listened me and perfected every single sentence, and added more information that I was not able to write. I totally recommend her to choose. Working with her was so easy. Also, looking forward to ask her help for my future assignments.
