Choosing a Seattle Tutor: What to Look For

There are hundreds of writing tutors available in Seattle. How do you make a good choice for your own writing instruction?

The majority of ads that offer tutoring for students are posted by students themselves, many of whom have little idea of the actual rules of syntax and grammar. The fact that someone is an English major who gets good grades on his or her papers may mean they can write well themselves. It does NOT mean they are qualified to give grammar instruction or serve as a writing coach.

Having served as a writing teacher on the faculty of many major colleges and universities in the Seattle area, I have the in-depth knowledge of grammar and syntax that allows me to explain to a client the rules of grammar or the benefits of style, in easy-to-understand terms. If you’re going to spend money on English help, be sure you hire an expert!
