About Hayden

I'm the Deputy Editor of Dave Eggers' literary magazine, The Believer, and I'm currently a professor of fiction writing at Columbia, as well as acting as Assistant to the Editor of the Cambridge World Shakespeare Encyclopedia. I have experience teaching at all levels: I've helped younger students publish a book of creative writing; high schoolers apply to college; and a workshop of undergraduates at Columbia. I have three years experience, and would be a great fit for anybody looking for help in English, History, essay prep and writing comprehension. I also have experience teaching math up to the high school level, and SAT and ACT prep. Writing can be a lot of fun, and I'm extremely enthusiastic about it.

I have a B.A. from the University of Southern California, and an MFA from Columbia University.

Let me know if you have any questions.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

In Los Angeles I spent two years volunteering at 826LA. I worked mostly with younger elementary school students (k-6). It was an after school program, so I helped them with any homework first, and then we worked on reading and creative writing.

I also designed and published a book of short stories for third graders at an elementary school as part of a class at USC with Aimee Bender. We spent a semester with a third and fifth grade class, teaching them writing. At the end we made them a book of their work.

Music History

I'm Deputy Editor of The Believer. The Believer is a internationally circulated magazine, founded by Dave Eggers. For it, since I started in 2013, in addition to film (for which I just submitted another one of these), I've edited a lot of music criticism.

I also studied music history at the University of Southern California and King's College London under the Wagner scholar John Deathridge.
