Writing is one of the more difficult aspects of education. It requires a student to comprehend, analyze, and then explain. Tutoring relationships that involve writing coaching usually span several years because of the complexity. But the time and energy are well worth it as the feedback I receive from the English teachers has always been overwhelmingly positive. My students become thoughtful, concise, and analytical writers!
I have been trained in the Writing Revolution Method, which fundamentally changed the way I approached writing instruction. Writing coaching can be done in person or virtually through shared documents. Apart from my training, an additional benefit I offer is my experience with elementary, middle school, and high school literature. I read every single book my students are expected to read as they write an essay or paper. My repertoire includes Animal Farm, Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, A Separate Peace, A Raisin in the Sun, Sita Ramayana, Siddhartha, Ragnarok, Beowolf, The Odyssey, Black Ships Before Troy, Haroun and the Sea of Stories, Tuck Everlasting, The House on Mango Street, Hatchet, The Girl in the Blue Coat, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Climbing the Stairs, and Lord of the Flies.
