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.
Schandell
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'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.

Dr. Maggie Fry does everything in her power to help students achieve greatness. Her lectures are relevant, thorough, and engaging. She is equal parts witty and attentive; any feedback given is done so with an open mind. I believe that she has made me a better, more confident writer due to her encouragement - going out of her way to provide me with a list of publishers who accept student work. She gave me the courage to pursue my passion in life and finally declare my major as English with a concentration in writing.
Savannah
I had a great experience with Maggie. I feel that she encouraged me to expand my interests and ability, particularly when it came to technical writing. I enjoyed working with her because she's down to earth and meets her students where they're at in addition to being a pleasant presence. I would recommend her to anyone.

Randy is a great singing tutor. He’s patient, flexible and encouraging. My son is a little reserved boy and not comfortable at expressing his feelings, and Randy helped him reading through every phrases before the singing. That was very helpful. Thank you Randy!

Very knowledgeable and patient. Broke down challenging concepts and problems in very understandable terms. Saved me hours a week of having to read my child’s textbook and watch YouTube to teach my child what he wasn’t understanding from his middle school teacher.

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.

As a focused and driven high school student, I achieved the top score of 5 in both the AP English Language and Composition exam and the AP English Literature and Composition exam. At Wake Forest University I have completed and excelled in classes such as Foundations in Literary Criticism, The Art of the Essay, British Literature, and American Literature.

I am dedicated to teaching lessons and sharing my skills on a professional level. With regard to skills, I am well versed in the analysis of literature and poetry. I am able to identify, interpret, and explain the techniques used by authors and the effects. I can then affectively present my interpretation through strong writing and arguments based on evidence.

After sending a last-minute essay to Camryn for some review, I received great editing suggestions and tips in order to improve my paper. Camryn responded very soon after sending her my essay which gave me time to discuss her suggestions with her before submitting my paper. With Camryn's suggestions, I feel much more confident in my paper!
