Writing is a challenge, and without the right guidance, it can be difficult to overcome the built-in intimidation factor. It's my goal to break through those barriers. I have several years of experience in the field as both teacher and tutor. I currently teach English classes at a University and tutor students throughout the Bay Area. My specialties are working with students aged 16-20, but have comfort and experience with ages far outside that range as well. I'm a patient, understanding tutor, and I work well with confident writers and writers still trying to learn the English language -- as well as everyone in between. I know what it takes to write an essay for high school and college classes; I also know how to help you understand what instructors are looking for and how to improve you writing so you don't need regular tutoring going forward.

Improving writing is a challenging process. I applaud you for taking the first steps toward enhancing this fine craft.

About Matt

Hi! I'm an experienced writing teacher and tutor who works regularly with high school and college students. Because I teach college English and writing courses, I know what to focus on when tutoring students. I know writing is a difficult and intimidating task, so I take pride in my patience and ab

Bgcheck Background Checked


Online Writing Teacher

I have been teaching and tutoring writing for over 10 years. I bring a unique, interdisciplinary perspective to the table because I have taught academic writing across the disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. I have also collaboratively taught writing intensive seminars with engineering faculty. In addition, my current writing project is a historical fiction manuscript based on my dissertation research on the Reformation era.

I enjoy working with students from middle school age through adults of all ages. My previous students have ranged from adults returning to school after many years in the workforce, to high school and middle school students who were seeking mentorship in academic and creative writing, to adults working on writing their dissertations. In my lessons, I work with you to help create a learning environment that is suited to your unique needs.

In addition to my writing background, I also have professional theatre experience, which I build on when I ...

Of the different instructors I have collaborated with, Sarah is by far one of the instructors who has most consciously worked to make sure that her course design met the goals and learning outcomes of the curricula. From the first day I met her, she already had a syllabus design that met any suggestions I might make from my previous years' experience teaching courses in our program. I know she worked actively with others in the program in designing her materials, and she took all their comments to heart, building her syllabus around their recommendations for achieving learning outcomes.
In addition to creating assignments that clearly and usefully supported the goals of the program, Sarah incorporated the community contributions elements of the program, as well. She invited speakers from the campus community and the broader community. The students responded positively to all of these speakers, and they actively incorporated the ideas they learned from them in their work for the course.
The students' final presentations are the best indication of how successful Sarah's course was. The students were asked to use their academic research paper to create a policy paper or deliverable to a stakeholder of the students' choosing. The students created such fantastic presentations, that some of them could perhaps have been sent to the intended stakeholder--if we had the right contacts--with only minor revisions. The final presentations indicated that they achieved the learning outcomes of the course.

Sarah was very patient and gave constructive advice during our lessons. She also does her research regarding the topic or subject you are writing on before the lesson.

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.
