Reading/Writing tutoring & courses designed just for you

Whether students are enthusiastic budding authors or hesitant writers in need of a boost, my Reading/Writing tutoring courses are a perfect fit. I design each course to meet students where they are and build confidence and independence in each step of the writing process.


In a typical Reading/Writing enrichment course, students learn to read quickly without losing comprehension, summarize, and analyze. They get practice engaging in literary analysis, writing research papers and persuasive essays, and completing challenging timed writing assessments. Students also learn about how to enrich their writing with advanced grammar and vocabulary.


All courses are bespoke and tailored to meet each student's needs. Small group classes of 2-4 students are particularly popular.
