Writing Tutor and Coach

“Man’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.” ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

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!

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.
