If you’re looking for someone to help you become a better writer, or maybe just someone to proofread your papers and offer constructive feedback, I can help. As a former journalist, and current English Language Arts writing teacher, I have experience drafting papers, doing revisions as well as working with others to help them understand the writing process. Through my undergraduate studies at The University of Chicago and my Masters program in Journalism at Boston University, I have committed to writing as a career.
While in undergrad, I worked with high school juniors and seniors on their college application essays through a program offered at my university. After graduation, I tutored colleagues still in undergrad by reading their papers and offering feedback on how to make their papers better.
For three years I worked in the Boston Public School system as a writing tutor helping all ages of high school students with projects ranging simple five paragraph essays to multimedia presentations. I also worked with ESL students helping them write papers and understand the nuances of the English language. After that, I worked at Northeastern University as a Writing Consultant helping college freshmen adjust to the rigors of college-level writing. Later, I taught Developmental Writing at Mountain View College, and worked in their Academic Center for Writing as a Writing Specialist.
Currently, I am an ELA writing teacher at a High School. In this role, I work with all levels of high school students to help them prepare not only for STAAR English tests, but also write at a collegiate level.
My teaching style is flexible. I adapt to the needs of the person I am tutoring so that they can get the most out the time we have together. I create a relaxed environment in which the most work can be done and a student feels comfortable to ask questions and participate in the learning process.

Awesome and helpful tutor
Frederick allowed me to take my own ideas and run with them. He helped me understand the importance of structure and I got a better feel for how I should format my essay. He would ask me a question and give me time to form a valid and coherent response. His tutoring method really helped me to get my ideas on to paper since I was struggling with writers block. Would definitely recommend!John, 2 lessons with Frederick

We think he is an awsome tutor!
Frederick is very knowledgeable and offers great insight to my student who is in the process of completing college applications. They have formed a good relationship which allows them to communicate ideas back and forth on a level that is comfortable for both.Patricia, 3 lessons with Frederick
Extremely conscientious and thorough. Has a deep understanding of English Literature and makes the subject interesting. Frederick is dedicated to my son's success and his grades improved markedly after just a few lessons. Definitely recommended. We are glad we found him and plan to continue using him for the rest of High school.Walid, 43 lessons with Frederick
Very patient, and a great tutor.
I really liked Frederick. I found him on WyzAnt and contacted him about tutoring my two sons. He was very patient, reliable, and friendly. He knows his subject, and I was really happy with the results. I highly recommend him!Letzy, 16 lessons with Frederick
Effective tutor - daughter enjoyed the lessons and great results.
Rick did a great job helping my daughter with her college entrance essays. Rather than just correcting or rewriting her existing work, Rick taught my daughter how to create an effective essay structure from the start before moving on to developing proper paragraph and sentence structure. He made my daughter think about what she was trying to say by asking her questions about what was important to her. The results were fantastic - my daughter's essays are very well written, they are her own work, and she now understands how to write a much better essay. My daughter also enjoyed the lessons - Rick made it fun!Elizabeth, 7 lessons with Frederick
