Introduction: Empowering others to find their voice through writing is one of the joys of my career. I’ve worked with students of all ages, from middle school to middle age, logging over 3,000 total tutoring hours. I coach writing and reading skills in a variety of disciplines, from essay writing to creative writing to poetry (my students’ work has been recognized as Editor’s Choice) to research papers on a wide array of topics, and my students have gone on to publish in highly-respected publications.

Heather is the most professional tutor. She not always is good at what she does, she also shows up each day with such kindness. She has a welcoming spirit that helps everyone feel right at home.

Having worked with Heather for a year now, I can confidently say that there is nothing more I could have wished for in a writing Coach. Heather has always been super attentive to who I am as a person and as a writer, and what I wanted to accomplish through writing. Every writing session with Heather is relaxed and focused. She is always able to make me feel comfortable and at ease, even as someone who is often anxious and even more so while sharing writing. Vulnerability in my wring came naturally, which was honestly such a gift. Heather has both a knack for grammar and a subtle touch when it comes to stylistic choices. When I was working on my memoir piece, Heather asked so many questions about logistics to help me sort out my story and what I wanted to share with my readers. She was able to read, understand, and help me amplify my voice. From her wealth of knowledge she has taught me the skills I need to make my ideas work. I couldn’t have asked for someone more intelligent and sweet to help me get published!

Heather is such an incredible coach and I’m so thankful I found her! She’s worked with me on a variety of projects ranging from creative writing and informative articles, to song lyrics and libretti. Her vast breadth of knowledge has been an invaluable resource and certainly sets her apart from other writers I’ve worked with - everything from the arts, linguistics, music, history, literature, horticulture, foreign languages… need I say more?? Thanks, Heather!
