Writing tutor based in Los Angeles with five years of conducting one-on-one lessons

Methodology

I love to get the student to state the issue they believe they have with the writing. This creates a dialogue between us, so that we can examine the issue and come up with the right lesson plan to tackle it. By using a previous essay, or a work of literature, we can then work on this issue within its proper context, resulting in 'real world' experience in finding the solution.

Background

I am an MFA graduate in creative writing who has tutored students of all ages. My focus is in helping you learn more about the English Language, so that eventually you won't need a tutor. Think of me as a mechanic that teaches you how to fix your own engine.
