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.
David
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.

Private Writing Teacher

Is your child is struggling to grasp key concepts in his or her language arts class? Are you a student working on a large-scale term paper, or preparing for the SAT or AP exams? Or a high schooler looking to build the best college acceptance essay possible? Whatever your or your child's age or grade level, I will provide the instruction needed to accomplish your or your child's academic goals. I make writing fun and productive by setting challenging yet realistic goals and providing engaging lesson plans that will drive the student to be attentive and engaged. My lessons go beyond simply explaining the rules of grammar and sentence structure, but truly teaching each student how to proactively apply the concepts of language arts to daily life to fully absorb the subject matter and create a foundation to build upon in the years to come. My goal is to unlock each student's unique writer's voice and give him or her the confidence and technique to tackle any writing assignment, from ...

My daughter loves Lilia!

She came prepared and was accommodating. Lilia showed patience with my son with autism, which I appreciated and was relieved to see. She also has great pedagogical knowledge of how to instruct a child in piano.

She does "unclean" vocals in her band, Karkaza but is super knowledgeable on regular singing. After only a couple months, I'm beginning to see some progress despite my years singing improperly.

Greer
My daughter needed help with her writing portfolio for an audition. 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.

A great resource for teaching young writers to elaborate and cite evidence. Both are key components to being a successful writer for the state writing Assessment.

I'm an intermediate player who needed refinement and refresher of my core techniques. I went to Elizabeth because she has a background in both fiddle & classical. After watching me play, she affirmed that which I was doing correctly and then helped me to improve where I was lacking. I would recommend Elizabeth.
