Bgcheck Background Checked


Private 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.

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!

Having to sit down and write a paper (whether it be your college thesis or a five paragraph essay for an elementary level English course) can be an intimidating and stressful if not overwhelming experience.

That's where I come in...To help you with both the assignment you are currently working on as well your writing process in general. Working on strengthening how you write will make writing easier and easier each time you do it, until you don't need my help at all.

Many people are not aware of the universal strategies and tactics that can be used in order to improve their writing at every stage in the process. Whether it be brainstorming, outlining, drafting, writing, editing, etc. Taking at look at and examining your writing process together will allow us to customize the tutoring session for your needs specifically.

Outside of helping to write papers I can assist with help in English grammar, Literature, Creative Writing, and many other related fields.

During these literature lessons, I have greatly improved my writing skills, going from a B to an A- in AP Literature. I was also able to see how my writing could be improved and through this I was able to focus on these aspects of my writing through repeated exercises. I would recommend these lessons to any high school student who wants to take their writing skills to an even higher level.

Nick is a wonderful teacher, he is knowledgeable and perceptive. I first came to Nick for help on my essay for my college application. He was able to help me narrow down the options of topics to write about so that I could confidently write about a topic I am passionate about. He continued to help me outline and structure the paper so that it would be organized and academically acceptable, and finally, he helped with editing so that the final copy was ready. A few months later I received my letter of acceptance.
After helping with my college application essay, Nick continued tutoring me through my semester at Community College. he taught me how to do a close reading, to arrange paragraphs, and to better phrase my ideas. He offered new ways to strengthen my writing. Nick is so patient and full of encouragement, I could not have made it through the semester without him.

Nick is very patient and knowledgeable. He has helped me reconstruct many paragraphs in essays/college papers that I had to write. He has a keen eye and sees all the little mistakes and ways things could be rewritten to convey point. He has looked over several of my papers and edited them, and also helped me to learn to write better- not just fixing the problem for me. I have watched my grades go from C's to A's over time, he's great !

New York, NY

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Writing Teacher

As a child I was obsessed with writing, and excelled in this area. Starting from 1st grade, I was writing at least 5 fiction stories at a time. During middle school, I became home-schooled, which allowed me to delve into improving my writing skills. I tutored my younger siblings in writing. When I took a writing class at community college, I tutored my classmates. Writing is a tricky process, but you can expect patience and clarity with me!

About Lindan

I began playing violin at age 2 1/2. I started the viola in 2011/2012 and am currently pursuing a BM at The Juilliard School, studying with Misha Amory. I am a recipient of the Juilliard, C.V.

Online Writing Teacher

I have studied English, directly, through my degree in the field and through continued training at the graduate and doctorate levels. I've taught several sections of first-year composition at a university. I have written short stories and poetry in formal environments and for presentation. I have tutored both adolescents and adults and stand out, by reviews, as a smart, caring, helpful teacher.

Possibly the only dedicated PhD for E-Learning on the TakeLessons server, I am member of the Association for Language Learning, located in Leicester, UK.

I booked Erol to help me set up my music equipment and sound system in my apartment. I know him through my neighborhood. I confirm he achieved to install the units and provide the connections at the best rate. I find he also stands out for his knowledge of technical terms and for his competence to coordinate the right brand name with the task to be completed. He explains everything clearly and completes the service.

Among the accent reduction teachers that I had before, Erol is the only one who actually could find the problems in my accent! The program he uses is very useful. The way he explains things or exaggerates the mistakes will help me to correct my accent. Overall, an awesome experience and I would totally recommend him to anyone.

Online Writing Teacher

As a former Journalism student, writing has been the number one way I learned to communicate both academically and professionally. It's important to be able to distill highly technical information into language anyone can read, and not only can read, but enjoys reading. I had three mentors in the past who helped hone my writing skills, and I love applying what I learned from them with my own students today.
