Perfect Your Essays and Learn to Work Efficiently!

Nothing can boost your grade quite like a well-written essay. It's a brilliant exercise in critical thought, analysis, and comprehension that can help you interpret the world and its media long after graduation. In my classes, I focus on how to most efficiently express yourself, using the following technique:

- Spending the majority of the process on the OUTLINE - knowing what you're going to say is the hard part, so let's knock that out first, the rest is easy!
- Use of vocabulary - advance your speech in order to convey exactly what you want to say.
- How to think critically - I will review with you what you should be looking for when you read, for maximum enjoyment as well as analysis.

I look forward to seeing you in the Zoom Room!

Extra information

Have a notebook or Word Doc ready - you'll be writing quite a bit.

About Me

I'm a recent graduate living in England with loads of experience in tutoring, happy to help you communicate your ideas clearly. My favourite part of school was essay-writing, and I'd be thrilled to share my knowledge and passion for it with you!

A class with me works a little like this:
- An introduction to you - what's your name, your favourite class, and your favourite book? This helps me gauge what your style may be as a writer and learner, plus helps put you at ease.
- An introduction to essays - what's your experience with them? How do you currently write?
- An introduction to my technique - Exercises designed to help you practice good, efficient writing techniques.

I'll be happy to read over your material and give positive, constructive feedback. If we have a little time, I'll even gossip about books to you!

Writing Tutor for Application Essays, Papers, and More
I’ve learned to decode and analyze what institutions and organizations seek in applicants. I will help you sculpt your biography and experiences into a compelling narrative that shows why you’re the perfect fit. My unique approach demystifies writing by breaking the process down into 5 steps, which can be wrapped up in an hour or develop over several sessions to suit your needs. 1. Organize: I use the Google Drive platform to help you organize documents so you can declutter your mind and make space for writing. 2. Prioritize: We’ll break down your writing task into manageable deadlines, creating a timeline that reduces stress and maximizes efficiency. 3. Decode: I’ll help you translate application questions or essay prompts into clear, actionable language. 4. Flow: This is the fun part. We’ll sit down with a cup of tea to talk and brainstorm. 5. Crystalize: This is where the prep work pays off. We translate your ideas into professional, clear language. Then we use the magic of editing to transform your writing into a masterpiece. *What I can Help With* College and Graduate School Essays Grant Applications Academic Papers ESL Writing and Conversation Skills Students who worked with me were accepted to: Brown University Dartmouth College Columbia University University of Pennsylvania London School of Economics Georgetown University Carnegie Mellon University Middlebury College Williams College Phillips Exeter Academy
