Private Writing Tutoring

One-on-one writing tutoring is the heart and soul of our work at District Writers. A writing tutor can tailor instruction to individual students, working collaboratively with them, their families and schools to identify and work toward specific goals. We progress at the student’s individual pace, building on skills as they show mastery and gain confidence.

Although all students excel with individual instruction, writing tutoring is especially helpful for students who struggle to express and organize their thoughts, have writers’ block or need innovative approaches to learning. A writing tutor is also a great resource for gifted or creative students who seek more creative or advanced writing instruction.

Writing tutors can also coach students on specific writing projects, such as the college common-app essay, grad school application essays, extracurricular writing projects and more!

Suzanne worked with my two boys in high school, and she's a gem!  She not only supports a student's own skills on specific assignments but teaches key long-term strategies for making kids more successful writers and readers. Both my boys loved working with Suzanne, and each felt he came away as a stronger, more capable writer. She’s the best!
