Many of us struggle to write the first sentence of an assignment. Then we waste time attempting to achieve a certain word limit before a due date, quite often using filler words and repetition to do so.

I am here to transform the way you approach writing, moving from a mundane experience to a meaningful one. In our sessions, we may explore some of the following themes:
-How to build robust, well-supported paragraphs
-How to craft a killer thesis statement
-How to connect ideas logically (moving beyond empty words or phrases)
-How to claim your audience's attention from the first sentence
-How to find and integrate the best sources into your paper
-How to vary vocabulary and sentence structure so that your voice shines through
-How to clean up grammar errors

Beyond guiding you through writing essays and paragraphs, I can assist you with a whole smorgasbord of communication needs (e.g., resumes, cover letters, articles, theses/dissertations, creative writing, books, grammar, ESL, ...

My son’s lessons with Sara have been awesome! He’s very shy and reserved but she has made him feel comfortable. I have no idea what she said to him during their first interaction but it made him more confident in his work. My son has mentioned that she’s pleasant to work with. He also wanted me to mention that she challenges him and helps him think. Thank you Sara!
Kumara
Sara is an excellent teacher!! She is really helping my daughter improve her grammar and writing skills.

Sara is by far one of the best teachers we have had for our son. She is knowledgeable and worked with us to meet the specific needs of our son. Our son has had a great learning time with her so far. She's phenomenal!

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

Though I teach for a living, I'm also a writer. Research and analytical writing appeal to me especially, not to mention fiction.

About Simeon

The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience. I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 res

Words cannot express how awesome Simeon is....but here is an attempt. As parents, my wife and I cannot say enough great things about Simeon. Our child was preparing for his second attempt at the SAT's. Our child has a 4.0 GPA but did not do as well as he would have liked on the SAT's his first time. Our son was hesitant at first to work with a tutor since he thought he could prepare on his own and improve his score but as parents, we decided he needed outside help. That's when we found Simeon. Our son not only increased his SAT scores by almost 100 points in a very short window, but he extremely enjoyed his time with Simeon. Now that he and Simeon no longer meet on a weekly basis our son misses his time with Simeon. Simeon is extremely intelligent and has a way of explaining the concepts in a manner that anyone can understand. Simeon truly cares about the students he works with. We have another child entering high school next year and you better believe if he needs any tutoring Simeon will be getting a call.

Very intellectual and patient ... Cares and wanted to help .

Simeon has been an absolutely invaluable resource for my SAT prep. His encouragement is appropriately supplemented by challenging material and (appropriately) challenging expectations. He manages to make studying for the SAT fun rather than a laborious task and I could not recommend him more.

5 Strategies for Developing Writing Skills

Unlike some other academic skills, the ability to write well is something that follows you from elementary school all throughout your life, particularly if you work in an office environment - so it's no wonder there's such an emphasis on it in school! From creative short stories and descriptive paragraphs in elementary school to lengthier prose and argumentative essays in high school, and then implementing those skills to write research and term papers in college, students spend a great deal …

How to Help Your Child With Informational Writing Assignments: Part 1

Informational Writing. Two words bound to lose the attention of any kid (and probably just about every adult) the second they’re uttered…It’s not a phrase that’s quite conducive to awe, wonder, or excitement. And outside of battling a lack of interest, writing itself can be a tedious, frustrating, and scary process that most students do everything they can to avoid. So what can we do? How can we get past all of the barriers that children and students put up for us and for themselv …
