Expert Local Tutor Of Writing, Reading, Study Skills, Test Prep & More!
I hold a Master's degree in Creative Writing from UW and a Bachelor's degree in English and Philosophy from Concordia University in Montreal. As a student, I won various academic awards--you can find the details, as well as Google review, on my website, writeseattle. com. I also hold a Cambridge CELTA, a certificate in ESL teaching, and have taught here and in South Korea, in classrooms and one-on-one.
Over the past decade, I have been helping students of all ages develop their reading and writing skills, organization and accountability, and overall academic curiosity and confidence. During that time, I've learned as much as my students have. My mom was a resource teacher who helped students with disabilities thrive in the classroom, and later worked as educational consultant for international schools: between my own experience and research and my regular "consultations" with her, I have developed a pedagogical approach that emphasizes relationship building, student-led discovery.
