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 to improve their writing at every stage in the process. Whether it be brainstorming, outlining, drafting, writing, editing, etc, examining your writing process together will allow us to customize every 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.
