Working on an essay?
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.

Great explanations. She was also making sure I understood what she was explaining me. Thank you!

I've had about 3 lessons with Amrita so far and she's really great. Accounting topics that professors talk about in class that can be hard at times Amrita breaks down and makes it really easy to understand. She definitely knows her stuff and you can definitely depend on her to teach you and help you in every way. I highly recommend her!!! :)

What Types of Creative Writing Prompts Work Best for Kids?

Kids who love to write may be off and running once the pen hits their hand, but other children might not feel comfortable writing unless given a few creative writing prompts. Creative prompts encourage imagination and provide a jumping off point for journal entries and stories. Even children who love to write may find it easier to work from a prompt because it gives them an area of focus - and it's fun! As a parent, one of the best ways to encourage your child's love of the written word is to pr …
