About Scott

I am a freelance writer with all of the skills to prepare you to become an excellent communicator through the art of writing and comprehension in general. I have studied with some of the finest playwrights, screenwriters, critics, novelists, and essayists in the world. I have a mixed background in the language arts, ranging from screenwriting to the critical essay to poetry. I studied English Language and Literature at one of the finest undergraduate English departments in the country- the University of Michigan- where I was mentored by some of our nations's finest published writers. I then went on to graduate school, pursuing my masters at the number one ranked film school in the world, the University of Southern California. As difficult as it is to gain entrance is as difficult as it is to succeed there, which I did, maintaining a GPA over 3.8. At USC, I studied with some of our nation's most gifted film directors, screenwriters, and critical essayists. It is at USC that I truly achieved the status of a world class essayist.

Aside from my proficiency as a writer, I love teaching and I love working with children of all ages. Accepted into the prestigious and highly competitive NYC teaching fellow program, I studied English education taking master's coursework for over one year at the highly respected School of Education at Pace University. I am married with three small children of my own. I am a former NYC English teacher, with a special gift at being able to excite children about learning and presenting things in a digestible manner. I enjoy seeing children becoming excited about learning and improving and being a part of that journey is very fulfilling.

I can prepare you or your child for all English obstacles in all of their forms; whether it be a standardized test or an essay for a class assignment, your child will become prepared and more importantly, learn to enjoy writing. Writing is a lost art form, yet, remains the standard-bearer by which others measure our intelligence, skill set, and ability to fulfill a given duty. if you are a poor communicator of your own thoughts, you are at a disadvantage.

If you want to have fun learning and at the same time learn how to master the English language in all of its forms (and greatly improve your chances for getting into the college of your choice) then contact me and let's get started!
