I have an extensive background in writing and editing for a variety of media outlets -- newspapers, magazines, websites and more -- which means I have been required to produce high-quality material very quickly. You can do the same. I will work with you to learn techniques that will allow you to write quickly and clearly. It's not as difficult as you might think!

Adam is a really great listener and excellent source of thought provoking, well timed input that has really helped me develop and improve my story organically without changing its intention with strong suggestions as most people's feedback often attempts to do. If you're looking for a hand in finding your own voice and to strengthen your writing skills or excellent constructive feedback for your story then look no further.

Adam Gaines is a godsend. I was really lucky to have his guidance over the years which helped my craft and dedication to the art of writing greatly. He is a proven writer with legitimate credits but also, he actually cares. He is always ready to help and takes your material seriously which is most important when you want honest feedback and guidance. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of films, screenwriting, and the industry that is both impressive and beneficial. He is a wonderful friend and mentor who will always have a great recommendation or suggestion ready for your work and/or career. Adam is an extremely open individual with an immense passion for film and the craft of screenwriting which becomes infectious. That trait is crucial since it keeps you driven to keep learning and grow. He is also an excellent conversationalist with his own voice which is truly refreshing. Highly recommend.

Adam gives you insightful comments on how to make you a better writer. He knows what good dialogue sounds like and with a couple suggestions you instantly know how to re-work your writing to give it a natural flow.

I've had a book published and have written for a multi-national newspaper. I also got A grades right up until I finished college with English and Creative Writing. My style of teaching is very relaxed and informal, I want students to feel they can be equals with me, and gain confidence and be proud of their work. I set homework but I also encourage students to get creative in their own time and to show initiative! The most rewarding thing is that with writing, you can nowadays find so many outlets for your work - the sky's the limit!

Lessons can involve looking at literature and different styles of writing, as well as finding something that sparks the imagination and interest. I work especially well with young teens and pre-teens, as well as those who are looking to further their writing skills.

Hi there! I'm Alex and I have had a passion for teaching others for as long as I can remember! My main goal is to make learning a fun and individualized journey!

Some info about me:

I started working with children/youth at a very young age which taught me patience, kindness and understanding. I have worked with families with children ages 1 month to 20 years old, children with special and extraordinary needs, and many different demographic and socio-economic backgrounds. I am currently a High School Special Education Teacher with my Masters Degree in Mild/Moderate Disabilities.

Music has always held a special spot in my heart! From a young age, I explored the musical world until I fell in love with the French Horn. I spent time learning not only in school bands, but in youth orchestras and in the SDSU Wind Symphony as section leader. During my time at SDSU, I also taught private French Horn lessons for 4 years.

I am also a High School volleyball coach (women and mens ...

Interested in evaluating where the individual's writing skills are; what are their goals; and how to develop a lesson plan based on the age and school district requirements. On our second lesson, my 13 y/o daughter's sentence structure has already noticibly improved! Can't wait to see how much more she improves!
