Writing


A solid understanding of written communication is at the core of good grades – and it’s a core skill for the real world too! It’s hard to be an effective critic of your own writing when you’re uncertain how to improve it. I can help you in three important areas:

  • Structure – each piece of writing should be structured according to its purpose. I work with students to build and practice different forms and styles, clearly defining the persuasive essay, research paper, college essay or personal narrative – whatever the students need.
  • Vocabulary – to write well, students must extend their knowledge and vocabulary in order to understand the nuances of meaning that language choices offer.
  • Style – a great writer has a recognizable voice! Whether fact or fiction, persuasive or poetic, personality and style is what lifts a piece of writing above the ordinary. Voice is what enables a reader to engage with a piece of text. With my guided tutoring you will find your voice and allow it to come to the forefront. The change in quality of your writing will be thrilling.
