Writing Coaching & Tutoring
Writing Tutoring for Youth
A former high school English teacher and Composition teacher at the college level, I have been working with students in grades 8 through college as a writing tutor since 2007.
My approach is to support students developing confidence as writers.
- For those working on assignments, I assist with planning for writing, writing, and editing and proofreading.
- For creative writers, we discuss craft and generate new ideas, and I provide coaching on revision. I tutor students in all genres, including fiction, investigative journalism, essays & creative non-fiction, and poetry.
- For reluctant writers, I engage students in fun word-related “Writing Brain” activities to keep writing muscles active and help kids see themselves as writers.
- For all students, I infuse concepts related to grammar, punctuation, sentence structure as well as structure, tone and flow into all of my tutoring.
