Tutoring in all subjects that involve writing. 

 High school is about writing, writing, writing. It’s a critical time in our adolescents’ academic development when their thoughts can be jumbled, but their writing must be clear. I help students slow down their thought processes and hone in on developing and organizing their ideas. Good sentence structure and word choices are key components.  

I have been a PRIVATE ENGLISH TUTOR since 2003.  My success rate regarding college acceptances is well known.  

I tutor students in high school and college in all subjects that involve writing – including AP English, AP History, and AP Government courses.  I help college students with research papers and term papers.

Serving Weston, Westport, Wilton, Ridgefield, New Canaan, Greenwich, Darien, Norwalk and Fairfield, as well as New York.

I also work remotely via Skype, google.docs, and FaceTime.

    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
