I am always looking for new ways to meet the needs of students and parents in all aspects of writing, testing, and college application. If you want a service, class, or seminar I don’t currently offer, please email me with your ideas.

Private Tutoring- One on one tutoring in a relaxed, home setting.  Test prep is available for SAT, ACT, PSAT, and TSI. Subject specific tutoring is available for math from basic algebra skills through Algebra 2, all level reading and writing, and study/organizational skills.

Study Groups- Study groups consist of 3-6 students in the same subject with similar classwork. I guide and help the group with questions and explain concepts as needed regarding homework, missed test questions, or test review. Groups can meet 1-3 times a week. Pricing and scheduling depends on group size, frequency and availability. 


College Application Coordination

  • How do I fill out applications?
  • Do I need a new app for each college?
  • What essays should I write? How?
  • Do I need a resume?
  • Where do I list achievements and awards?

Get guidance on all these questions and through the entire application process. Services range from education on the basics of the process with check-ins as needed to supervision and assistance with each form and keystroke. You decide which approach is right for you.

Application services generally include help with ApplyTexas, CommonApp, & Web based apps; essay planning, revision, and submission; resume formatting and/or electronic submission; forms and checklists; timelines, and more.

Help on Essays, Summer Reading, Writing Projects, and more

Keep up with assignments and projects over the summer and during the school year with one on one guidance and coaching. Weekly or drop in sessions over the summer take some of the pain out of the process for both parents and students.

Essay revision can be done via email when face to face sessions are not available. Emailed revisions can be pro-rated by the minute.
