College Essay; Writing/Literature Tutor; SAT/ACT  

 I’ve been a PRIVATE ENGLISH TUTOR since 2003.   I tutor students in middle school, high school, & college. 


      SUMMER means College Essay.

It’s the perfect time. The College Essay is not an essay.; it’s a Personal Statement. It’s not academic. It’s creative. Let me help you make your “essay” excellent.

In groups of 2, 3, or 4, enjoy a collaborative experience. CHOOSE: Soap Opera! Video Game Scripting! Creative Writing!  Once you have your pod, we can determine a time Tu, W, Th between 1 PM and 4 PM.  Workshops to be held outside the Weston Public Library. (Appropriate adjustments to meet inside during rain or excessive heat.)

PRICE: $40 per session per student; Total $160 payable in advance. 


     I serve all of Fairfield County high school students. Also, now, more than  ever, I provide services via phone, FaceTime, Zoom, and google.docs anywhere in the country.

    “I can’t say enough about the help that Deirdre gave my grandson.  She was genuinely interested in his success throughout the whole process.  She helped, not only with his SAT preparation, but also with his senior year homework, filling out the Common Application, his essays, and even suggesting colleges.  I am very grateful to Deirdre for providing outstanding support for my grandson and for making the experience so much less stressful with her caring and enthusiastic encouragement.

  1. we are interested in tutoring for my son Tucker he is taking the ACT test. Wanted to know your rates and availability
    We are first timers for this process so we could use some guidance. Tucker goes to Fairfield Ludlowe High School. I believe you are tutoring my niece Taylor Rochlin

    • Hello Samantha,

      Thank you for your note. I would be happy to help Tucker prepare for the ACT. More and more, colleges are turning to this test.
      My area of expertise includes English, Writing and Reading. A colleague, Kathy Lott Smith, works as a partner when needed on the math portion. As for the science portion,
      I help with strategies for reading and test taking in general.

      My normal hourly rate is $100, but I am very happy to discuss what works best for you and your family. In addition to face to face meetings, I offer online help
      when schedules get crazy for you and Tucker.

      Please let me know when you would like to meet for a complimentary info session. I can meet at a library close to you or at your home.
      Feel free to call or text me: 203 454 2629
      Deirdre Doran
