About Leah


I am an experienced editor, published author, and nurturing mother of three available to help you with writing projects such as college essays or English papers. I also offer general writing tutoring in nonfiction or creative writing, and can help you develop your ideas and your authentic voice. I’m fine with offering last minute help with essays, and good at working with students of all levels.

I will take you through all the steps of the writing process, from staring at a blank page and coming up with ideas to creating multiple drafts and a polished final piece.

Since graduating from Cornell University with a degree in English, I have worked in various writing and editing professions for over 25 years. My blog, became a published collection of essays. Past positions include news assistant at The New York Times, assistant editor at One World/Ballantine Books, book reviewer for Publisher’s Weekly, and blogger for The Huffington Post and Psychology Today. I write young adult fiction, memoir and poetry, and have taught English composition at Baruch College of the City University of New York. I also worked as a proofreader for Stanley Kaplan, the college test preparation company.


For more information or to set up a lesson, please contact me through WyZant. I'm happy to tutor online or at a public location to be determined. My hours are flexible and I can work around your schedule.
