Tutor Information


Are you having trouble writing an essay and you don't know how or where to start? The process of writing can certainly seem daunting and difficult to approach (at first). This is largely because writing is a practice. It takes time and effort to build your skills. I’m a writing coach with experience supporting diverse learners in boosting their word-smithing skills. I train students to become confident communicators, in both their academic and everyday lives. Get in touch with me and we can work together to get your essay to the finish line, from "zero draft" to "final draft" and every stage in between. Also, with students, addressing current realities, I look at the ways Artificial Intelligence (AI) might help or hinder the essay writing process. What kind of tool is it and how can it (or might it) be useful? Along with writing, I offer broad academic support in English, this includes strategies for reading and reading comprehension, literary analysis and more. Through personalized sessions, I provide the structure and guidance necessary for each student to reach their goals. Please message me for more information. I look forward to working with you and to the exciting possibility of being part of your journey in learning! “Writing has so much to give, so much to teach, so many surprises." —Anne Lamott
