Tutor Personal Information

Name: Elisabeth S.

Tutoring Style and/or Experience

As a professional writer, I want to help students learn to craft beautiful prose, sharpen their grammar and polish their final drafts. I am a former Time magazine reporter and I served as the top editor at Bucknell University's student newspaper, so I know what it takes to write that perfect college essay or turn in a fabulous end-of-year writing project. While I am currently in the process of becoming certified to teach English in New Jersey, I taught writing workshops at Bucknell for four years.
