Possessing a graduate degree in any of the liberal arts means one can write. It is one of the only verifiable perks, marketability speaking, the liberal arts can boast. I can help a child from roughly age ten with the basics all the way up the the graduate student attempting to master a double thesis piece. I am much better if you come to me with a specific problem as opposed to "make me better." In the latter example the goal may not be attainable to any significant degree, but I digress. If a writing problem exists, I promise I can solve it; or at least figure out how to solve it and point you in the right direction. I can provide behaviors in your academic travails that will help throughout your academic career. Do you keep a personal annotated bibliography? Do you read other than school materials? Can't write if you don't read.

About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, wi

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!
Ava C.
So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!
