Writing Skills Essay Writing Literature Writing Anxiety Writing Blocks Woodstown New Jersey BA English

Methodology

I am almost a life-long tutor in writing skills. I give lessons and tutoring sessions to high school through PhD level. I work from the basic and from your relationship with writing to create the right teaching approach.

If you are blocked, I will supportively push you to complete some free writing. I can take you from there to organizing an essay. If you are struggling with writing anxiety, I can work from where and when the anxiety started, and take you through a language journey that will bring you to the present, confident and capable. I will state, that with writing anxiety, I have recommended counseling a few time.

As a teacher, I work from an organic model. I learn how you learn then proceed from there. There is nothing fancy I can post here because I teach from an individualized model.

Background

I have been a writing skills tutor for over 30 years. I also taught undergraduate Introduction to Literature for 10 years. I cannot put a number to how many students I have worked with. I imagine around 200. My students have succeeded by graduating from graduate school to being able to successfully complete a Senior Seminar required for their undergraduate graduation. Students have told me that they learned how to truly read from me. My students often told me that they would not have graduated without my assistance. They have also become college level writers after working with me.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $10
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $100
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $250

Details

If a student is severely lacking in writing skills, I will need to charge a minimum of $30/hr. If I am working with a student where English is an additional language, I will need to charge $35/hr. This work is time and cognitive intensive. I will be worth your time and energy.

Kimberly 's resume

I earned a BA in English from University of Southern Maine. While working full time and taking 12 credits in literature, I earned a spot on the Dean's List.

I started by helping my fellow students in high school.
When I was in college pursuing my English major, one of my professors recognized my talent and I became a tutor for students needing to build skills before diving into college. I then developed my own business tutoring graduate and undergraduate students. Part of that included editing/proofreading. I have edited undergraduate to Ph.D. dissertations.

I also have experience from being a Teacher Assistant to high school and elementary aged people.

I teach from an alternative place that will not weigh you down with labels. I use everything from breath, sound, visuals, and alternative assignments to get you out of your stuck place. I am also extremely grounded and will make sure you succeed and that we find what works for you
