Middle School and High School Writing Assistance

As a certified teacher with 10 years’ prior experience in the journalism field, I am particularly qualified to guide middle school and high school students toward becoming better writers, able to use written communication to express their own thoughts and pursue their own goals.

I combine Nancie Atwell’s Lessons That Change Writers curriculum with supplementary materials (both published and self-generated) to address the six traits of high-quality writing: ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence flow and mechanics.

I work with both young people who struggle with writing and gifted students who want to be challenged to write with greater sophistication.

Contact me if you are a young person who needs or wants to become a more effective and expressive writer.
