PRIVATE WRITING TUTORING
Since 2005, we’ve helped students improve their confidence in writing.
We’re especially proud of the fact that other educators (teachers and professors) and high profile members of the Princeton University Administration trust us with their children’s academic success and recommend our services to others.
Our tutors are all strong writers themselves and can help your student become one as well.
Many of our tutors are published authors, essay-contest winners, and university writing award recipients. And, our writing students have ranged from third graders to high schoolers to business professionals who needed a brush-up.

What parents say about our Writing tutors
Our team includes award-winning Princeton University undergrads and Master’s/PhD graduates who are rigorously screened and are extremely effective at communicating the material.
A brief “case study”:
The mother of a 10th grader reached out to us to help her daughter improve her writing skills for the SAT, creative writing, history, and English.
She was working with another tutor (from another company) and they weren’t making much progress.
We matched the student with Ally, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Princeton University and former high school English teacher.
Here’s the feedback we received after the 1st session:
“Anya said she appreciated the structure, the goal-setting and plan, and said it was the best tutoring session she ever had 🙂“
We receive messages like this every week.
We regularly track progress
Progress reports are shared after every session so you always know what’s going on.
A Real-Life Example:
Subject(s): English (Reading/Writing) – Middle School
Time Tutored: 04:00 – 05:00
Next Scheduled Session: Fri, 04/03 4:00 PM (Zoom)
Today we reviewed Richa’s homework, during which we went over new vocabulary words.
I quizzed her and asked her to use the words she used last week in sentences.
After this, I prepared a presentation on essay structure and creating a thesis. For this, we went through essay mapping, and I had Richa map an essay live.
I did the same with creating a thesis live based on the steps from the presentation. In the final few minutes, we reviewed her school essay, and I gave her a few pointers.
I’ll send Richa the homework questions via google docs, and I will also send her written comments on her essay.
Assignments for Next Week:
Richa will map an essay and a thesis for the essay. I have a few worksheets prepared for her to work on her transition phrases, and I’ll also send her a list of vocabulary for her to learn and for us to go over at the beginning of our next session.

Addresses common student issues
A deep understanding of the subject matter allows us to personalize our approach.
Why is writing important?
Writing is a critical skill that underpins academic success in virtually every subject. No matter how bright a student is, if they can’t get their thoughts across on paper, they will struggle with homework, written assignments, and tests.
Why do some students struggle with writing?
Translating one’s thoughts into a coherent message on paper is not easy for everyone, but can absolutely be improved with practice and guidance.
For example, some students might not initially realize that there are different types of academic writing. The expectations and requirements for written work in English class versus biology versus history are different.
There are also many different types of essays – expository, persuasive, research, formal, creative, etc. Each type has its own approach.
On top of that, some students struggle with grammar and vocabulary.
"We are writing to commend our tutor Lauren, who has been tutoring our daughter in English since September 2010.
Lauren is a terrific teacher! We noticed a significant progress in our daughter's performance which we attribute to Lauren's tutoring. We would like to continue studying with Lauren this year."
