Sharpen Your Writing! English tutoring in person or online! 

I work with students of all ages (K-12 and adults) to improve your ability to communicate effectively (native and non-native English speakers). If you are local to Silicon Valley, you have the option to meet with me online and/or in person face-to-face, but I can work with anyone anywhere in the world online (via Skype/Zoom). 

Experienced English reading/writing tutor and coach available for children, ESL students, and professionals involved in business communications. I also write and edit marketing material and content for corporate clients as a freelance global strategic communications consultant. 

For parents, older students and professionals: Employers Want Strong Writers
As students advance in school, writing well becomes even more important across all academic subjects. Your child doesn't always get the individual feedback or extra support they need at school.

Recent research proves that written communication skills are at the top of employers' wish lists. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 73.4% of employers want a candidate with strong written communication skills. Written communication was the number three most desired quality overall, behind leadership skills and ability to work as a team member. Jason Fried, founder of Basecamp (and Inc. columnist), also commented on the importance of hiring those with strong writing skills in his book, Rework. "If you are trying to decide among a few people to fill a position, hire the best writer. [His/her] writing skills will pay off. That's because being a good writer is about more than writing clear writing. Clear writing is a sign of clear thinking. Great writers know how to communicate. They make things easy to understand. They can put themselves in someone else's shoes. They know what to omit. And those are qualities you want in any candidate. Writing is making a comeback all over our society...Writing is today's currency for good ideas," he wrote.

My lessons include working with students to learn how to develop the following skills:
Ideas--the main message
Organization--the internal structure of the piece
Voice--the personal tone and flavor of the author's message
Word Choice--the vocabulary a writer chooses to convey meaning
Sentence Fluency--the rhythm and flow of the language
Conventions--the mechanical correctness
Presentation--how the writing actually looks on the page
Grammar
Reading Comprehension--both literary and informational text
Test Prep

My focus is on giving students the encouragement, support, practice, practical knowledge, resources and tools to build confidence and find success on the writing journey. Writing is thinking!

Don't Be Fooled

  • When selling, do not put your home address in your ad.
  • To avoid scams, buy and sell with people you can meet locally, in person.
  • When meeting with someone you don't know, meet in a public place. If that's not possible, have a buddy with you. Also, carry a cell phone; if you feel unsafe, you can call a trusted friend, and stay on the line.
  • Never give out financial or private information like account numbers, PayPal login, or social security number.
  • If an offer sounds too good to be true, it is. Walk away!
