I've had a book published and have written for a multi-national newspaper. I also got A grades right up until I finished college with English and Creative Writing. My style of teaching is very relaxed and informal, I want students to feel they can be equals with me, and gain confidence and be proud of their work. I set homework but I also encourage students to get creative in their own time and to show initiative! The most rewarding thing is that with writing, you can nowadays find so many outlets for your work - the sky's the limit!

Lessons can involve looking at literature and different styles of writing, as well as finding something that sparks the imagination and interest. I work especially well with young teens and pre-teens, as well as those who are looking to further their writing skills.

Bgcheck Background Checked


Online Writing Teacher

Ever since I was a child, I absolutely loved to write. During my sessions as creative writing tutor, I hope to foster that same love for writing. My students are challenged to stay true to their own voice while simultaneously considering craft, style, syntax, structure, and the myriad elements of engaging, successful writing. My sessions can be catered to a specific goal (standardized testing), or can be an open-ended experience invaluable to academic success.

About Jillian

The best instructor of music I ever had. I have zero musical background. But as an adult, wanted for the first time exposure in music. After about 4 one session guitar lessons, each with a different instructor who all basically told me I was hopeless (didn't return my call/text to schedule a next session), never did I think that I would be 20 lessons and months of guitar and voice sessions in with the same teacher.
Because of Jillian, I can throw down chords on a guitar, and sing along while playing, something unimaginable foe someone as musically challenged and illiterate as myself.
My future in music, as an adult whose professional background is medicine and science, appears unfathomably bright. Because of a teacher who had the patience to believe.

I was somewhat skeptical about being to learn to play guitar online but I am sure glad I gave it a try because it was amazing. I've been trying to play the guitar for 20 years and I learned more in 45 minutes with Jillian than I have all this time. Thanks!

In addition to being one of the most educated, well-versed, and talented teachers I have come across in my 2 decades of performing, his passion for music and all that is art is extremely evident. He instills a faith in his students and co-performers that lets you know he believes in you and your potential, and ensures his dedication in assisting you to learn, grow, and bloom both musically and artistically.

I have had Randy as my instructor for over a year and he has helped me develop my singing skills to a level I didn’t think was possible. Even after the first few weeks of class, I noticed a difference in my singing. Randy is extremely knowledgeable and does a wonderful job of teaching. He does well with explaining techniques and makes things easily understandable. He is also very kind, talented and professional. I will always be grateful to Randy because he is helping me to be a singer that I always dreamt of being!

"Thanks to Sarah's help with my high school daughter's writing, my daughter achieved major milestones in her work as a creative writer. Sarah helped my daughter learn how to write in genres she never had before (poetry, short stories, and drama) and to have more confidence in her ability as a writer and a person. Also, whenever I wrote Sarah with questions about her sessions with my daughter, she always took time to write thoughtful responses that showed how much she cared about my daughter's growth."
