Private Tutoring and Editing

I am proud to offer professional private tutoring services for adult and young adult students who would like to improve their English, literary analysis, reading, or writing skills. I am also available for editing of scholarly, technical, and creative texts.

ESL Lessons:

I work with students of all skills and abilities, from beginner to advanced, conversational to academic. For anybody seeking help with speaking, listening, reading, writing, or grammar, I am at your service.

Writing Lessons:

Whether you seek help with academic papers or creative writing of any genre, one-on-one tutoring can dramatically improve your writing skills and performance. As a professional writer and teacher, I assist students with their essays, stories, manuscripts, and professional documents.

Literary Analysis:

College English courses sometimes challenge even the best of students. If your critical reading and analytical skills are in need of development or just a brush-up, private or group lessons can send you back to the top of your class.

Professional Editing Services:

For ethical editing, please contact me regarding dissertations, theses, technical reports, presentations, or professional documents (cover letters, resumes, CVs). I will not write your documents, but will take care to correct grammar, redundancies, and to fix problem sentences. The documents will maintain your voice, style, and flair, and will have the added attraction of reading smoothly and correctly.
