Having to sit down and write a paper (whether it be your college thesis or a five paragraph essay for an elementary level English course) can be an intimidating and stressful if not overwhelming experience.

That's where I come in...To help you with both the assignment you are currently working on as well your writing process in general. Working on strengthening how you write will make writing easier and easier each time you do it, until you don't need my help at all.

Many people are not aware of the universal strategies and tactics that can be used to improve their writing at every stage in the process. Whether it be brainstorming, outlining, drafting, writing, editing, etc, examining your writing process together will allow us to customize every session for your needs specifically.

Outside of helping to write papers I can assist with help in English grammar, Literature, Creative Writing, and many other related fields.

Nick worked with my son, a freshman in college, to support his completion of essays in his freshman english class. My son will speak to Nick's tutor skills, but I need to speak to Nick's service - he is incredibly friendly, and his response time is excellent. Any time we needed to ask a question, I got a reply within minutes (or, if he was teaching, at his earliest break). Scheduling sessions can be tricky when doing tutoring, and having a responsive, communicative tutor who is organized and manages an efficient schedule is KEY. Nick is all these things. I highly recommend him as a tutor!

Nick is a great teacher who makes learning fun.He is very dedicated and invested in the success of his students. He is eager to help even after the sessions are over. My daughters can email him anytime before tests or submission of big essays and he reviews them and emails them back with feedback.

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.
Thelma A.
Very intellectual and patient ... Cares and wanted to help .
Sadie
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.

Monica is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and my son loved her from the first day. She has an easygoing demeanor and she makes math fun for him; she also sends a bunch of worksheets for him to work on in between. My son is entering 4th grade and I wanted him to work on some preview math skills before starting schoo. Monica was the perfect person I was looking for to work with him.

My daughter has been taking voice & piano lessons with Randy for about a year now. Within a few months after switching to Randy, the improvement in both her piano playing & in her voice was very noticeable not only to us (her biased parents), but also to her music & performing arts teacher at school and others. Randy is an excellent teacher who knows how to bring the best out of his students. My daughter loves her lessons with Randy !

Randy did an excellent job. Very patient and knowledgeable regarding the subject matter.

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."
