It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.
Kristyl N.
I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

Meagan is very flexible and is a great teacher. She doesn't make the student feel self-conscious about answering wrong, She gently asks the student to explain how they came up with the answer and allows them to correct themselves. If the student doesn't realize their error during the explanation, she explains to the student wherein the equation they made an error. She also repeats the problem areas with the student until they have a full understanding of the process.

I sought Meagan out after my daughter came home with a failing grade in Algebra I. I am very happy with my selection, she is the perfect fit for my daughter. She is very flexible and I appreciate that she doesn't make my daughter feel like her lack of understanding of the subject matter makes her inadequate. I am going to continue hiring Meagan for the duration of the school year, my daughter really likes her and is learning far more than she is from her regular classroom environment.

Private Writing Teacher

I have over forty years of teaching and writing experience, from middle school writing, to high school, to the University level, including professional and business writing. I served as the Writing Specialist for the Pennsylvania's Department of Education and also was a founding member of the Pennsylvania Writing Project. My work on my Ph.D. took me to understanding composition at it's most basic level, and I studied carefully the advent of writing as a science and as a fundamental form of expression. My thesis centered around the development of grammars and the development of the paragraph. I've received many awards, positions, and commendations for my expertise and success of teaching writing at all levels.

About Stephen

Know someone in need of an editor?

I provide editing for high school and college students for their writing assignments, be it college application essays, research papers, or even just getting your ideas off the ground and into an rough draft.

Writing doesn’t come easily for everyone. Whether you need a look over for content or a deeper dive to get your writing to reflect your ideas, I can help. I’ll work with you to nail down your thesis statement, make your writing flow, and reflect your own voice. Throughout this process, I’ll help develop your writing skills for future assignments.

I am a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College (an extremely writing-heavy school) where I focused on creative writing in many forms. I come from a long line of editors in my family and have written a YA Fantasy novel that I'm currently querying for publishing.
