Writing Tutor and Coach

A solid grasp of writing sticks with you for life.

It all starts with a solid foundation–the earlier, the better. You need to be able to comfortably navigate the written word and overcome common stressors associated with written assignments in school. As a writing tutor and writing coach, I work with each student…and parent(s), if under 18…to determine goals and areas for improvement. Then, we solidify a plan of attack and get down to work developing and honing skills you’ll hang onto for a lifetime. 

I offer writing tutoring in the following areas for K-12, college, and graduate students:

Essay organization & writing

Grammar development

College application essays and personal statements

Speeches and presentations

Writing competitions

Paper & thesis development

Class assignments and essays*

I look forward to working with you!

Excellent Teacher and Person

Erika is an excellent teacher, understands the student's needs and adjust her teaching accordingly. She is definitely an expert in her area, but most importantly, she cares about her students. I am so glad we were able to find Erika, her positive impact and help in the progress was amazing

- Elvan O.

Erika is fantastic — extremely reliable, and VERY patient. I have a son who hates/avoids writing, and they have developed a great relationship. He enjoys working with her. My son can be very frustrating at times…she is always patient and works well with him.

* “Helping with class assignments and essays” is a fine line. While I am here to advise and assist, please note I do not outright do homework for any student. As such, the most progress, flexibility, and tangible assistance comes from essays and other written projects I assign.
