About Celia

I've been a professional writer as well as a writing teacher for many years. I've published five books as well as many articles in magazines (Parents), online (CNBC) and in newspapers (The New York Times). Because I learned what it takes to write well, I can teach you how to write well, too. I taught writing at New York University for over 20 years and I've tutored hundreds students of all ages.

Most importantly, writing is fun and easy ... once you understand the secrets. Believe it or not, creativity is part of all good writing, from the driest research paper to the most experimental fiction!

My credentials include an MS in Journalism and an MFA in Poetry, both from Columbia University, plus an MA in English from New York University. I've worked with children ages K-12, and find that creative writing with youngsters and teens is a perfect way to segue into more formal essay-writing. I've taught writing, public speaking and presentation skills at New York University's Stern School of Business, IBM and The Ford Foundation. But what really makes me a good tutor is my ability to listen and to articulate solutions. I am good at understanding your particular struggle and showing you how to solve the problem.

If you want help with a child struggling who struggles with writing or with your own school papers, if you have anxiety over SAT/GRE essays, or if you have any other writing or public speaking challenge, contact me.
