Private Tutoring from a Published Author
With a B.A. in English, 22 years of professional writing experience and countless published articles for national and international publications, Susan Fishman has a passion for seeing kids succeed through strong communication, healthy expression and self-motivation. Recently, she’s taken Maya Angelou’s words to heart (“When you learn, teach.”), offering private tutoring for children at all grade levels.
Writing is an essential skill that will benefit your child for the rest of his or her life. According to the Institute of Education Sciences, writing is important for elementary students’ continued learning in all academic areas, communication and self-expression. It develops critical thinking and problem-solving skills, builds confidence, teaches about planning and organizing, and provides a therapeutic outlet with a means to cope, discover identity and work through real-life conflicts.
Learning these skills, and developing a lifelong love of writing, can never start too early — or too late (especially for today’s generation of texters and 140-character tweeters). Whether your child is struggling with a college application essay or just needs some assistance with basic grammar and composition, I can help him or her grasp the tools that are missing, and hone the ones that are there. I’ll lay the groundwork for a strong understanding of — and appreciation for — the written word that will carry your child through not just school and career, but all aspects of life.
Areas of focus include:
- English Composition
- Basic Grammar and Sentence Structure
- Research and Essay Writing
- College Essay Prep (hint: I’m not writing it for them)
- Communications – Audience, Objective & Tone (in an email/text/tweet world)
Contact Susan to discuss your child’s specific needs.
