Kathy is the real deal. She sits down with each student and figures out what that student needs to succeed or improve, and then she teaches the skills. And she does it in a healthy, low-stress, positive way so that the student enjoys the tutoring.
Michelle helped me edit a few creative nonfiction pieces I was working for publication. Her thoughtful developmental editing helped me see flaws in he narrative arc, noticed details that were distracting to the story, and helped me see places that needed more complete explanation. Her copy editing caught many errors that my own dozen or so readings (and the proofreading of other people) missed. Because of her help, four of the eight essays she edited for me have been published in journals such as The Iowa Review and Epiphany Magazine. Her feedback is insightful and timely, and has made Michelle one of my go-to readers.

Due to my extensive use of formal and proper English in my writing, and communications, I tend to differ from the rest out there, who only use language that furthers a storyline, or completes a project.
Unlike theirs mine stands out, and is memorable.
Professionally, my training in story-craft, literary analysis, and editing has led me to a career in communication work for non-profit organizations. I am happiest when Im writing for a good cause whether thats a fundraising letter, a letter to the editor, a press release, or a set of talking points.
I am known for my speed, creativity, and interpersonal skills.
I teach the art of expression through music and writing. My methods will not only endow skill in the pupil but also develop the artistic and expressive sense. Combining well-developed skill and intuition, my aim is to create independent individuals able visualize, execute, and achieve.
