Award-Winning Tutors in Wayne, NJ
Thomas "... I speak directly and pointedly so the student knows precisely what’s wrong with the essay (and, most importantly, how to fix it). I also make sure that the student makes the corrections his or herself so they get the actual feel for writing something well. Good writing is not just about using correct grammar, it is about structuring an argument, persuading an audience and sounding eloquent; skills that will help student well into adulthood. I have an MFA in Creative Writing with my thesis being a full-length novel that was edited by a five-time Pulitzer Prize nominee..."

During my time at Hopkins, I developed a passion for the sciences and, in turn, grew to enjoy teaching others about their principles.
