Writing Coach

Set goals. Get feedback. Nail that final draft.

Veteran or newbie, all writers need a good coach.

Whether you’re writing a cover letter, creating a website, applying to school, or writing a book, I will work with you to:

  • Set realistic goals
  • Develop your ideas
  • Make steady progress
  • Develop confidence
  • Nail that final draft!

I make writing accessible to people of all backgrounds and abilities by using research-based methods of writing instruction. I offer in-person or online sessions of varying lengths and frequency, based on your needs.

My credentials:

  • I’ve tutored hundreds of high school and college students, from the Dartmouth Institute of Writing and Rhetoric, to standardized test prep and college application essay tutoring in Minnesota.
  • I earned my Master’s in Education from the University of Pennsylvania, studying the latest in the neuroscience of effective teaching and learning.
  • I taught high school English at Deerfield Academy (MA) and Social Studies at The Blake School (MN), developing innovative and student-centered writing curricula.
