Louisa and John

Louisa Peck, MA,

is a Seattle writing tutor and editor who works with all types of clients, from ESL learners to doctoral candidates, and on all types of writing, from scholarly articles to memoirs.  During her five years as Director of the English Department Writing at the University of Washington, she trained staff tutors and taught a senior level course on writing pedagogy.  This work, in addition to over 20 years’  experience teaching college English, informs both her knowledge and practice whenever she sits down one-to-one with a new client.

As a tutor, Louisa’s degree of expertise allows a relaxed and interpersonal approach that sets her apart. She takes a genuine interest in getting to know her clients and learning from them as she helps them achieve their goals of clear writing and self-expression.

As an editor, Louisa’s work extends far beyond error correction. She invigorates sentences by increasing their conciseness and specificity. Following the writer’s ideas, she can identify passages that detract from the text’s intended meaning – places where an idea is not quite nailed down or might be more logically laid out.

With a BA from Vassar College, MA in Creative Writing from the UW, and a dozen published short stories, Louisa’s qualifications rank as superb. But what causes her clients to recommend her is the personable, productive and at times downright fun experience of working with her one-to-one.
