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.

About Nick P.

Bringing a wide range of experience in Writing, English, Communication, Language, and Business, I help to make lasting adjustments that improve writing, communication, and overall efficiency over the long term.

My practice started out and continues to function as an academic tutoring practice for students of all levels. From elementary, grade school, high school, all the way to undergraduate and advanced degree candidates.

As I continued to both operate my practice and work professionally in the Language Service Provider (LSP) Industry, my practice expanded to professionals looking to gain more value out of their content, writing, communication, and use of language overall.

Please take a look at the different areas I can help, read through my background/experience, and reach out to start a conversation.

Background:

I have been tutoring in writing since I was in high school. While attaining my BA in English, I became a Writing Consultant at St. John's University where I worked with hundreds of students during every stage in the writing process. From brainstorming topics to write about, all the way down to making sure references have been correctly annotated, I covered every aspect of writing.

I began working in the LSP industry in 2015 and experienced all facets of the Language business. From the operations side to the business side, I worked directly with content creators, marketers, editors, quality managers, translators, and business leaders on examining their language and making it as effective as possible. The knowledge and experience I gained from this industry through 2020 helped the development of my own practice .

In 2017 I formalized my practice and began working with professionals as well as students, focusing on overall communication and efficiency in addition to writing.

I genuinely want to and enjoy helping you become better and accomplish what you need to. I am excited to help out and hope to hear from you soon!

If you ever need a dedicated language arts warrior, he is the one to choose! He works really hard to help you understand each facet of the area you are working on, in order to master the craft. Sometimes even in overtime which was very appreciated.
He really went above and beyond in helping me to pass my essay exam. Out of all the help, I enlisted, he was the only one that was instrumental in improving my writing which resulted in my passing the exam
I AM ETERNALLY GRATEFUL !!!!!!

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.

I struggled with my English core requirement as a Biology major at NYU. I needed to boost my grades for this class or it would affect my ability to get into physical therapy school. After digging on the web I found Nick who I cannot thank enough. He helped me completely turn around my essay writing skills. His help directly impacted the improvement of my English literature grade to a level where it no longer negatively impacted my overall GPA. Proud to say that I met my goal for my English grade and as a result my overall GPA. This had a direct impact on acceptance to my top choice for physical therapy grad school. I highly recommend using Nick as an English and writing tutor. If you do choose Nick ensure you come with a goal in mind as he does a really nice job of monitoring your goals and pushing you towards them.

He is responsive, gives prompt and excellent feedback, and my daughter enjoys learning from him.
Cant say enough good things about Nick.

I am extremely pleased with how hard he works to strengthen the areas that are lacking.
He puts a lot of CARE, time and energy behind the scenes to make the session more efficient and productive .He really listens to you and works with you to make the most of the time spent working together.That means the world to a struggling learner that wants to move past this obstacle and continue on the path ahead .
He is able to see the big picture and to correctly discern what you really need to achieve academic success .I am so glad I found him on TL and will definitely choose him again for other subjects that he teaches should the need arise
Book him now if you want tailored instruction from someone who really knows his stuff !!!🤗

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 !
