"Hello, my name is Courtney. I'm a high school counselor with a background in professional writing and editing. I graduated cum laude from Boston University in 2007 with a B.S. in journalism and a B.A. in philosophy, and earned my master's in school counseling from John's Hopkins with a 4.0 GPA. I specialize in helping students write college essays and personal statements, from coming up with a topic to editing and proofreading.

For seven years, I worked as a writer and editor, starting as a proofreader and moving up to become managing editor of two publications. I have two years of experience tutoring high school students in English literature and writing, SAT prep, and college essay writing. I also have one year of experience working with elementary school students, and three years of working with middle schoolers. Eventually I left journalism to become a school counselor, which I love, but I miss the academic piece of working with students -- teaching and coaching them as they develop their writing skills.

As a tutor, I use clarifying questions and scaffolding to bring out the best in each student. I enjoy working with students at all paces and levels, and always welcome guidance or resources from parents, students and teachers. After all of my education and experience, I have many tips and tricks to share with students who are looking to hone lifelong writing skills. Please feel free to contact me with any questions!" less...
