Learn to write from an award-winning published author (MFA/PhD-20 years teaching experience)

Methodology

I'm a published author (MFA/PhD) who has taught native/non-native English speakers from secondary through graduate school how to read and write both creatively and analytically. I design lessons based on individual student needs, providing tools that target specific writing and literary challenges.

Background

20 years teaching experience. Hundreds of students. Students have attended undergraduate/graduate programs (MA/MFA, PhD) at Harvard, Stanford, Brown, Yale, Stanford, U.C. Berkeley, UCLA, Sydney University, University of Auckland, and University of Hong Kong. I give students the tools they need to reach their goals.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $10
Rate for online lessons : $75/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $360
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $700

Details

I recommend 45 minute lessons for certain secondary students in grades 9-10. Rates available.
Critique/edits of personal essays/manuscripts available.
