Are you struggling to write that essay or thesis? Do you get stuck in the writing process? Do you need quick fixes, strategies, editing services, or feedback?
That's where I come in. I will get you to move past your blocks, give you strategies, or provide final touch editing.
For Admission essays, personal statements and university applications (Canada, US,UK) I have removed the frustration and guesswork out of what to say and how to make the best submission. Ultimately, my students reach their academic goals.
I can also help you with your writing at all stages of the process, from brainstorming to the final draft, resulting in improved grades!
Helping you achieve your academic and career goals is my passion. I've coached nearly 5,000 post-secondary students (mostly from George Brown and Seneca Colleges) in the last 10 years to improve their written English skills and successfully meet their academic and work-related writing goals.
To do this, I bring a synthesis of 30 years of experience in Journalism/Teaching/Employment counselling.
(Please note: If you are looking for someone to write your assignment, please look somewhere else!)
As a published writer and business journalist, I can help you refine your business reports and proposals and communicate effectively on paper to achieve your desired results.
I can also help you improve your study skills and your marks, and I can help you apply for that job, internship, or graduate program.
If you are a mid-age adult who has returned to college or university, I will help you through that threshold of going back to the classroom after many years.
I am also experienced and trained to work with ESL students including test preparation (IELTS, TOEIC, TOEFL)
