New to writing? Struggle with writing structures? Having trouble just getting started on a writing project? You have come to the right place and this class welcomes you!

With over 10 published books, and at least 15 years of successful teaching, I will join you on your journey to empowered writing.

I realize as an author and teacher, it can take a bit of work and motivation to get started. Sometimes caffeine can do the trick, but other times, all it takes is some side-by-side scaffolding to reach our writing goals.

Let's get to know each other and together experience the ever evolving process of writing.

About Maline

Ever since I can remember, writing was a way for me to express my thoughts. I struggled to verbalize how I felt and writing became a safe space for me to explain how I felt, and then share my thoughts with family and friends. As a published adult, I believe in the freedom to express through the a

Dan is an exceptional tutor. He tutored my son in 10th grade American Literature English. Dan actually went out and bought the books my son was assigned and read along with him to prepare for their lessons. He also edited all my son's essays, taught him some writing tricks, and dramatically improved his writing. I can't recommend enough.
Leona
Daniel is a fantastic teacher. He is patient, explains the information really well, and makes sure to tailor each lesson to my strengths and weaknesses. He is also really good at explaining complex concepts in super easy-to-understand terms. If you are looking for an amazing tutor who will help you understand and learn quickly, while boosting confidence, then Daniel’s the best tutor out there.
Kim
Dan is an exceptional tutor. My daughter is studying to become a teacher, and she struggled with the math section of the Praxis exam, which tests an overview of high school math. Dan worked extraordinarily hard, tutoring her twice per week. He rented practice books from the library, developed his own materials, and broke everything down for my daughter in simple terms so that she could understand. He was very patient and he worked through every problem she encountered. I can't thank him enough. Because of Dan, my daughter passed the exam, and she is on her way to becoming a teacher.

Writing remains one of the most important skills everyone needs to succeed in life. I have worked as a professional writer for more than 10 years, with experience as a script writer, copywriter, blogger, and reviewer. Resume writing, cover letters, personal statements, web text, radio ads, and advertisement are my specialties. Additionally, 7 of my scripts to date have been produced as short documentary films and released on DVD. Since writing improvement is a long-term process, I coach how to brainstorm and create an outline for any assignment; balance sentence structure, word usage and conventions to form articulate paragraphs with transitions; practice self-editing; and correctly follow the format of academic writing at any grade level, especially for essays. I mainly use interactive tools and resources to assist students in elementary school, middle school, and high school. For college and university students, I work with them through regular critiques and feedback to help them ...

About Natalie

During the past 9 years, my goal as a tutor has been steadfast: I want to help you help yourself. As the saying goes, you have to be open to accepting help before you can be helped. I understand that because we are all students our entire lives; I know from my own experience how hard it is to learn

Hello,

With over 8 years experience in tutoring, I have learned what methods work and those that don’t. I’m upbeat, patient, easy going, empathetic, and generally well-liked by others. I’m very good at adapting to different learning styles and have a knack for eliciting the best out of my students through motivation and positive reinforcement.

Throughout university, and after, I mentored many students with great results. In addition to academics I helped them get the most out of their college experience. Everyone I helped benefited greatly, and one runs a very successful consulting business.

Aside from math and English, I’m a very proficient test and note taker. I speak conversational Spanish, and basic Japanese.

About Mitch

Whether you're completely lost, just need a little help, or need some test/note taking tips I can be very helpful. My patient, easy going, and positive mindset is very conducive to creating a great learning atmosphere. I can also be very useful to those that aren't motivated, I have a knack for fin
