As a high-school English teacher of fifteen years, I am keenly aware of the challenges confronting today’s teenagers.  External pressures from classmates and instructors can be immense, and self-imposed expectations can feel stifling.  Sometimes these combined forces derail a student’s progress.

When this occurs, the assistance of an experienced tutor can yield considerable results: self-esteem rises, challenging assignments such as research papers are completed with a sense of pride, and daunting hurdles like standardized tests seem less threatening.  If these are outcomes you seek, then I am here to help.

Students in middle school, high school, and college are my primary clients, but I also collaborate with adults.  If you are a business professional, a non-profit executive, or a citizen seeking writing and/or editing assistance, please click on the Consulting tab above.

Satisfied Clients

Brian Bishop was my child’s 10th grade Language Arts Teacher. As I read the first email I received for the upcoming academic year, I surmised that this was no ordinary teacher. The introduction letter was thoroughly composed and thoughtful, and I knew this was a person who loved their vocation and the English language.  At curriculum night, the class was explained in great detail, and parents’ questions were answered with the utmost consideration. I myself am a writer, and Brian even suggested some reading material for my own use. His love of learning throughout life is evident. He has my continued respect and I can unequivocally recommend his professional skills as a tutor and mentor.

Thank you for the impact you have had on my life.  The first thing that I learned from you, perhaps the most impactful, was the way that you communicated with our students and other faculty.  I learned how important it is to speak honestly and openly. I have continued the “one word” journaling still to this day.
