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 want to share my love of writing with my students. The written word is still considered to be highly valued in the Unites States and it is essential in everyday life. Obviously what I teach to an elementary child would differ than a college student but reaching a high level of writing ability would be foremost.

Love the way Cathy relates to my 6 year old granddaughter...she is very hands on in a positive and upbeat manner and gets down to eye level when getting her point across. Has the child feel her jaw for example to learn the best position for a voice exercise. Then she often asks if the child understands what she is saying, asking for a return demonstration and verbal response of “yes’. And she reinforces success while repeating directions for mistakes...just a great teacher.

Randy is a first rate coach. He is knowledgeable, experienced, and with an easy going natural style. Was very adaptable to my level of experience and was patient - no question was too dumb. I highly recommend him without any reservation. I have already booked my next session.
