Private Sessions/ Tutorials

Write From The Heart offers skilled, one-on-one student support in both the essay-writing process, as well as creative fiction, nonfiction, memoir, and poetry. Private sessions are designed to put young writers at ease, especially those who may consider their writing a daunting task. There are no grades, tests or timed exercises, allowing students to express themselves, fully and fluently, without stress. Taught with humor and warmth, sessions reduce anxiety, and bolster courage and confidence, while gently guiding students to find their own voice. Students will discover topics they love, the importance of the rough draft, and the art and craft of revision; while they also experience the benefits of better focus and deeper thought.

"Dear Melissa,  Just wanted to let you know that Colin was THRILLED with the session last night. He came home and could not stop talking about how fun and productive it was. He thought the two of you worked really well together, which I take to be a testament to your encouragement and support and to your ability to make your students feel comfortable. Most importantly, he felt that you helped him improve the essay tremendously, and he’s looking forward to additional refinement with your assistance. So, in a nutshell, thank you very much for your help."  Stephen K. Medvic, Ph.D. - 2015
