I have taught academic writing to grade school children and Ph.D. candidates, so I can adapt my methods and materials to suit whatever your needs may be.

I have experience teaching students from a number of language backgrounds, and an MA in TESOL, so non-native speakers of English are encouraged to reach out.

I look forward to helping you express yourself effectively in writing!

Because my daughter had difficulty with reading in school, her reading Comprehension was not good, so we found Sara to be my daughter’s reading teacher after school. We made a reading plan for my daughter with Sara together , Sara is very patient and understanding. My daughter said she is very nice and funny in the class, and she likes Sara very much! After Sara taught my daughter reading, my daughter’s reading grade became A in school ! Sara, thanks so much for your teaching!

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 ...

Private Writing 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 ...

Pu S.
My son has been working with Natalie on SAT practice tests, mainly on the English portion of the SAT. Her style of teaching is to help him thinking through the problems and the ways to tackle them. So at the end of the day, my son is learning the tools to solve a problem/answer a question correctly. When he is doing the tests himself, Natalie’s approach is stuck with him. Overall, his time in Natalie’s class has been well spent. I am also glad to see that with all these remote learning at his school, he is able to get one-on-one attention every week to truly learn something and get him prepared for SAT.
Lynne
My 14 year old daughter worked with Natalie weekly over a 2 month period to prep for the SSAT and HSPT. She did a fabulous job helping my daughter prepare; she was super knowledgeable, patient, and supportive. My daughter has so much confidence going into her tests, thanks to Natalie. We highly recommend her!!!

I have a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry with a minor in Pre-Health Professional Studies. As a former pre-medicine student, I know the content depth that is important to teach to my students. As I am currently earning my Master in Secondary Education towards becoming a teacher, I am trained in the learning sciences to teach my lessons in an effective and memorable manner. I have experience scaffolding and differentiating lessons. I know how to accommodate and modify lessons based on IEPs. I am also trained in designing Response-to-Intervention to get underachieving students to succeed. I have experience with Highly Gifted, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced Placement classes.

To whom it may concern,
Diana L. Has been an amazing instructor for the past couple of months. She has encouraged me and pushed me to do better in math. She explains the material in different ways to find a perfect fit for me to understand. She’s very cooperative and values teaching. She has helped me in every way possible. She gives session notes so I can study the material afterwards in order to help me retain everything. I highly recommend her teaching!
Cliff
To Whom it may concern, 

I am writing this review because something amazing has been taking place with my child since she's been working with Ms. Diana L.

My Daughter Chelsea struggled for years in math and she lacked mathematical confidence, but since she's been working with Diana her Math skills and confidence have increased dramatically. 

Ms. L. takes a flexible approach to teaching and finding the best tailored approach for her students. I believe this approach is the reason for my daughters' recent success. Diana has only been working with Chelsea for a few months and her test scores and class participation have increased greatly.

I would recommend Ms. L. to any one that has a child that struggles in any area of Math , she has done wonders for my child and I am highly appreciative to her for all her teaching.

Sincerely,
Cliff Lawrence
