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!

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!

So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!

My emphasis is on a dialogue-driven, genre-sensitive, and media-enriched introduction to writing. This establishes a common and confident ground for inspirational English learning. The goal is to address critical, daunting issues that often derail students’ track towards the acquisition of a distinctive, impressive writing style.
I have studied English, directly, through my degree in the field and through continued training at the graduate and doctorate levels. I've taught several sections of first-year composition at a university. I have written short stories and poetry in formal environments and for presentation. I have facilitated learning for diverse age levels, as children, adolescents, adults, and seniors.
For example, I use a customized curriculum addressing frequently requested topics, as creativity, personal style, grammar, punctuation, diction, syntax, and idea-generation. Students have favorably reviewed my unique usage of related multimedia tools, as audio ...

Erol has a very systematic approach in teaching accent reduction. Since taking lessons with Erol, I've started to become more aware of my speech and noticed an improvement in my pronunciation. Highly recommended!

Erol utilizes an audio software to analyze and determine what needs to be worked. This eliminates a lot of human hearing errors and gives me a visual on what’s correct vs incorrect. Highly recommended for you to try his method out.
Rhonda H.
I enjoyed the lesson very much, he started out teaching things that made sense so that I would learn faster than the lessons I have previously taken and not done well with.
I'm looking forward to the next lesson and am practicing what we went over in class.

Award-winning, professional author, specializing in novels, short stories, and personal essays. The ugly truth about writing is that it's hard work. No one starts out as a great writer. Sure, raw talent is helpful, but it only gets you so far. The good news is that writing is a craft that can be learned; the even better news is that an experienced teacher can save you an enormous amount of time and frustration on the road to mastering the craft. I tailor my lessons to fit your individual strengths and weaknesses as a writer; I always try to give you concrete, detailed advice, along with useful exercises to help you become the writer you want to be. Send me a note if you're interested, and we can see if we're a good match.

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."

I knew that the competition was going to be fierce and while I believe that my daughter has real talent I also knew that she needed help organizing here ideas. Needless to say, she was selected to participate in the writing program. We both know that Jonita’s guidance and collaboration helped her achieve that goal. Jonita’s teaching style is exceptional and refreshing. My daughter hopes to work with her again as she transitions to the next stage of her journey as a young writer."
