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.

Are you a college student honing an entrance essay? Are you a professional trying to land your dream job with the perfect cover letter, or a budding author looking for feedback?

I'm a freelance political journalist by day, but by night (and a few business hours) I'm here on TakeLessons helping writers find their voice. We'll talk about whatever you're working on and make it better — from help with the basics like grammar and style to deeper feedback that helps you convey your big ideas. Every writer has something important to say, and I'm here to help you find the words.

I've written about members of Congress, environmental disasters and big-money elections for outlets like VICE and The Daily Beast and newspapers in multiple states. I'm excited to write with you!

Donna is truly one of a kind person! I am so lucky to trust my instincts about Donna. She is absolutely an amazing person! I like to become a permanent student as I have been interested in many subjects Donna masters. Also, I must say that Donna is a gentle tutor and being. She is a true precious gem.
Dan
Wow! This lady was oozing knowledge galore! Not only she knows what she claims, but she quickly sees other marketing aspects of the cyberworld and shortcomings of the website! She is extremely talented lady who cares about what she does. She is worldly and helpful with invaluable suggestions to improve SEO qualities of the site!

Initially, I have committed to only one session. I have purchased 3 more sessions. Donna ROCKS!!!

"I used to have terrible handwriting. Chicken scratch, if you will. I didn't think it was possible but after 2 months of continuous practice and finding a comfortable grip, I managed to write my best ever. I remember being rejected for a job because the essay portion underperformed the rest of the application. Kima is no joke! Unlike real teachers she doesn't want you to copy her handwriting exactly to prove proficiency. She helped me find my style and keep it neat. Glad I asked for help when it truly mattered."

"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."
