I’m an accomplished writer, editor and writing coach with over 20 years of experience…

In addition to individual writing students, my corporate clients include Citibank, Random House, The Princeton Review, and Scholastic Publishing–just to mention a few.

While not everyone can expect to win a Pulitzer Prize, your writing skills (and writing scores) can be greatly improved through the following proven and effective strategies:

  • tapping into your existing strengths
  • simplifying the writing process into multiple manageable (and measurable) steps
  • enhancing your vocabulary with carefully-chosen words that make a significant impact
  • polishing your vocabulary with words that sound impressive–and are suitable for many contexts
  • refreshing and expanding your grammar knowledge with easy-to-remember tips and tricks
