Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Firstly, I strive to create a positive and supportive relationship with my students. I want them to know that I am there for them and that, together, we will accomplish our goals. Getting to know their strengths and interests as well as the areas which challenge them, provides a framework from which to address their reading and writing needs. Although I work with students on many different writing projects,from literature essays to research projects, I have focused in the last several years on the college essay. (I was a college advisor for several years and have worked with students in two high school settings on their college essays.) The college essay is a uniquely challenging writing assignment which calls forth in the student self-awareness as well as creativity and persuasiveness. Helping students to find their voice and to develop an original and successful college essay is a uniquely gratifying experience.
