Writing, Editing, Coaching


I offer three types of coaching: writing instruction, foreign language instruction in Latin and Italian, and general college-readiness coaching. I’ve successfully provided customized, one-on-one tutoring and coaching for high school and college students as well as professors and other professionals. Working in person or online, I enjoy helping my clients improve their skills to become more skilled and independent.

Writing: Some people break out in a sweat when faced with virtually any writing task; others are experienced writers who need a guide for a particularly difficult project, such as a dissertation, a challenging article, or a new book in an unfamiliar genre. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned writer, my years of teaching and mentoring a wide variety of people, including elementary students, ESL adults, ivy-league freshman, and professional academics, have taught me how to provide the appropriate help you need. I won’t just edit your work; I’ll make sure you become a more precise and confident thinker and writer.

Latin and Italian Language: Do Italian consonants mystify? Are Latin noun declensions all Greek to you? Or maybe you love languages and simply want to learn something new? With my college-level teaching experience and rigorous Ph.D. training, I go beyond correcting mistakes. I can explain the fine points of grammar, clarify specific language problems, and help you appreciate the culture implicit in the language.

College-Readiness Coaching: The transition from high school to college brings new challenges. With higher expectations for responsibility and achievement combined with a new level of independence, college life can prove to be daunting.

As a first-generation college student, I remember well the shock of university culture and expectations. I certainly could have used a mentor to help me get organized, manage time, create schedules, and feel confident that I could meet expectations. If you’re looking for someone to help with these issues, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve worked with typical students who need basic guidance and with students who have special learning/medical challenges.

I’ve also provided help with general college-readiness skills in the context of tutoring specific subjects, most commonly writing and foreign language but also other humanities subjects.
