Reading and Writing Tutoring
Where do I even begin? From start to finish, Melinda has been a pleasure to work with. My daughter needed help with her college writing assignment, and Melinda definitely did not disappoint. She is the BEST tutor my daughter has ever worked with and I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of tutoring. Without a doubt, Melinda is our go to person for any and all future papers!!Oct 6, 2018Verified
Melinda prepared my son for the SAT & ACT last year and his scores improved greatly. Now, he's a senior and she's helping him write college application essays. Any student would be lucky to have Melinda as a tutor!!!Oct 12, 2017
Melinda has been my writing tutor for two years now after jumping around from tutor to tutor my entire eight years in college. Melinda has made me a better writer in all aspects. I am a history major, and am constantly writing research papers. Knowing I have Melinda to guide me and help edit, drastically decreases my anxiety when writing. She is exceptional at making herself available when the going gets extra tough. Overall Melinda is the best writing tutor I've ever had.Oct 16, 2017

Green Seed edited my 45,000 word novel quickly and comprehensively. Melinda’s comments and suggestions about conventions, word choice, continuity, and organization have improved my document exponentially. Her services were EXACTLY what I needed. Outstanding.Jun 9, 2020Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is always fair! The amount varies according to the level of editing involved. I usually charge per word, but sometimes it's a flat project fee. Language arts and writing tutoring is an hourly rate. I do offer a discount prepayment option.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First, we have an extensive phone conversation so I can learn about you and your project. Then, I usually ask for a written sample of work to determine how I can best help you. For students, we schedule a first lesson, which includes a brief evaluation and we proceed from there.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Harvard University B.A. in English; Lesley University Master's in Education; over 25 years of experience, including school administration, private tutoring, and editing; Adjunct Professor of English Composition & American Literature; and published author. Most importantly, I'm meticulous, patient and conscientious.
