Writing is an important way to communicate with others. Whether if you need to for work, school or any other reason, expressing yourself with the written word can be challenging without the proper foundation. I will use my academic experience as well as time as editor-in-chief of a publishing company to guide you through the process.

While there are several differences in the type of writing needed for an academic paper rather than a creative piece, all styles share many commonalities. I will help you find your voice and allow you to express yourself in the best possible way in a given situation.

Hello, my name is Meagan D., and I have been living in the DC area for about 5 years. I attended Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, MI. I have my Bachelor's of Science Degree, a Michigan's Provisional Teacher's Certificate, and a Maryland Teacher's Certificate. My major was Mathematics

Abbas
The teacher is very nice to the student, helps the student in different ways, and explains problem so the student understands their mistake.
Charley
Meagan is very flexible and is a great teacher. She doesn't make the student feel self-conscious about answering wrong, She gently asks the student to explain how they came up with the answer and allows them to correct themselves. If the student doesn't realize their error during the explanation, she explains to the student wherein the equation they made an error. She also repeats the problem areas with the student until they have a full understanding of the process.

I sought Meagan out after my daughter came home with a failing grade in Algebra I. I am very happy with my selection, she is the perfect fit for my daughter. She is very flexible and I appreciate that she doesn't make my daughter feel like her lack of understanding of the subject matter makes her inadequate. I am going to continue hiring Meagan for the duration of the school year, my daughter really likes her and is learning far more than she is from her regular classroom environment.

She's great!

Dee is patiently teaching both my son and daughter, and fostering their love for playing music. My hat is off to her, for accomplishing an already challenging task with young kids, while doing so virtually!

I am loving working with Dee! She is so understanding and gentle with me, while still keeping things moving, and ensuring that we are making progress. After just a few lessons, I feel confident working my way around my instrument, have developed a solid practice strategy, and am already building my repertoire, thanks to her guidance. I am so excited to continue studying the mandolin with her!

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."
