ExperienceI began tutoring over ten years ago and, since then, have assisted students of all ages with every imaginable writing assignment in the humanities or social sciences.
My specialty is university essay writing. I offer my clients guidance through all, or any part, of the writing process, including researching, developing a thesis, structuring their thoughts, and, of course, writing their drafts.
My graduate degree in philosophy speaks to my analytic abilities. I can help you make a strong, logical argument. At the same time, my degree in creative writing tells you that I can help you make that argument clearly, and free of grammatical errors.
In addition to essay writing, I've worked with many philosophy students, especially first year students. Philosophy can be intimidating so my focus is on demystifying the subject. By translating the ideas into plain language and using everyday examples, I make philosophy accessible so my students can find their footing and excel.
Here is my guarantee as a tutor: I will always take the time to learn your personal strengths and weaknesses. I want to see you succeed on your own merits and gain long-term skills, as well as confidence. I take nothing for granted and am always willing to explain and explain again.
With the right support and communication, my clients see results and nothing is more rewarding to them or to me!
In addition to tutoring, I'm also an editor who has worked one-on-one with numerous clients helping them to prepare applications, presentations, books, scholarly articles, press releases, marketing materials and creative projects.

HobbiesWhen I'm not helping others improve their writing skills, I'm writing myself. I also love swing dancing, old movies and baking!
