About Heather

My love of writing and encouraging others is a perfect blend for tutoring those who need everything from a quick proofread to an extensive session of encouragement and guidance. I graduated with a BA in English from WSU and am halfway done with my MFA in Creative Writing at Goddard College where I am a poetry editor for the Pitkin Review.

During my time as a student I was named best critique writer of the term by my poetry professor and my Junior Writing Portfolio passed with distinction. I greatly enjoy helping other students by proofreading their papers, suggesting edits, showing places of strength in their writing and how to build on that strength. Writing doesn't have to be painful; helping others to discover this concept is one of the things I love the most when helping others.

Creative writing is my specialty and the focus of my graduate work, however my skills and interests go far beyond the creative and into the realms of academic, technical, and business. My highest honor is encouraging students in their strengths and helping build confidence in themselves. In areas that need strengthening my goal is to help the student recognize and understand where and why and then move on to how specifically to grow in these areas with the focus being on recognizing patterns in their writing. By taking this approach the student can understand why they make certain choices in their writing and learn to change those patterns leading to stronger and more confident writing.

All four of my own children learn in vastly different ways so I am a big fan of different learning styles and will go to great lengths to help lessons make sense in the way the student understands best. Contact me for more information, for questions, or to set up a time. I am open to meeting in person or online. I look forward to hearing from you!
