About William

Find your voice, tell your story, and write with power!

Need help with SAT prep, admission essays, term papers, book reports, or other writing projects? I'm passionate about helping writers of all levels gain the skills and confidence to turn their ideas into compelling prose.

I'm a writing tutor with years of experience as an editor, journalist, author, and teacher. I'm an Ivy League graduate with a degree in English (magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa), a regular contributor to major magazines and newspapers like the Wall Street Journal, Wired, and Smithsonian, and a published author. I've worked as an editor and proofreader for magazines and publishing houses, and have taught writing to high school, college, and graduate students.

I believe in the power of a good story, and will work with you to hone your ideas into provocative, compelling, clear, and organized essays. We'll work on grammar and spelling — the details count! — and on overall argument structure. I'm an expert in the SAT/ACT five-paragraph format, and in personal statements, application essays, research projects, and book reports. No writing assignment is too big or too small! I have experience working with foreign students and students still learning English.

We'll shape our lessons to your skills and needs with practice test questions, essay prep, critical thinking, outlining, self-editing, and proofreading. I'll help you mold your words into high-scoring writing with clear instruction and lots of encouragement.

Self-confidence is the key to great writing! You'll leave our tutoring sessions empowered, encouraged, and eager to write.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I have a degree in English Literature and Creative Writing from Brown University, and I’m a published author, journalist, and writing coach. I have a deep passion for the written word, and share my love of books and stories with my students, empowering and encouraging them to read and write with care and confidence. Whether you’re working on reading comprehension, book reports, literature analysis, or just need help crafting your own story or essay, I know together we can achieve your goals.

Literature

I received a bachelors in English and American Literature from Brown University with a GPA of 4.0 and graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. I specialize in American Literature but am widely read and love sharing my passion for books with my students.

Proofreading

I've been a professional proofreader and copyeditor for years, both freelance and on-staff at major magazines and publishing companies. I'm fluent in all the major style guides (AP, Chicago, MLA, etc.). I'm fast, careful, and detailed.

SAT Writing

I take a no-fear approach to the five-paragraph essay, empowering my students to tackle any SAT writing prompt with confidence. I’m also a professional editor, proofreader, and grammar nerd, and teach my students the same tools I use to analyze and understand the narrative, argumentative, and informative passages in the Writing and Language comprehension section.

Writing

I’m an editor and writing tutor with years of experience in the writing world, both as a teacher and a professional journalist. I'm a regular contributor to major magazines and newspapers like the Wall Street Journal, Wired, and Smithsonian, and a published author. I've worked as an editor and proofreader for magazines and publishing houses, and have taught writing to high school, college, and graduate students. I have particular experience working with foreign students and students still learning English.

Together, we can learn how to master any SAT writing prompt, how to craft a compelling college admissions essay, or how to hone and organize a book report, thesis, or long writing project.
