Writing Coach

Susan offers personal coaching in writing for students in middle school through graduate school.  She is a certified teacher in Language Arts and Reading, a curriculum writer and editor, and author of the Kindle book, Biz Ideas for Kids.

Online or In-Person Option

She is available for one-on-one or small group tutoring in the Buckhead area, and also offers online tutoring in conjunction with personal tutoring or as an alternative to in-person sessions.  Online tutoring is offered via web conference platform where the tutor and student can view and edit a document simultaneously.  Video recordings of online sessions are provided to the student.

Experience

She served as Associate Editor of Educational Studies, an academic journal headquartered at Georgia State University. She is currently working as an editor for Write Advisors, LLC, where she just finished editing the recently published CEO’s Secrets to IT Success by Linda Lee Hughes. She has written on many different topics for clients, mostly in her role as a business coach.  She has taught English and reading at the middle school and high school level for over 10 years, both as a classroom teacher and private tutor. Currently she writes and edits online lessons in both Language Arts and Social Studies for Southwestern Publishing.

Philosophy

Susan always assumes the role of the teacher and not the professional editor with students.  She explains every change she suggests and makes sure the student understands why she is making that suggestion.  This is more time consuming that editing, but her goal is to make the student a better writer rather than to get him or her a better grade on a given assignment.
