« In the Spring of 2015, I had the pleasure of taking a Tinker Mountain online poetry writing class taught by Will. That Fall, I took a second poetry writing workshop with Will via OneRoom. Throughout both classes, Will provided me with incisive and instructive feedback that I have utilized in poems I have written since taking his class. Specifically, Will showed me how to take more risks with the line, and I believe my poetry has improved as a result of this guidance. My writing has benefitted from feedback he provided other students in the classes as well. Will also did a wonderful job of facilitating our group’s discussion of one another’s poems so that the suggestions we gave each other were focused and constructive. I hope to take more poetry writing classes with Will in the future. »

Baltimore English Teacher and Published Author w/ 10+ years of experience offers tutoring services in English, ESL, and creative writing to students of all ages.

Methodology

I offer in-depth tutoring services in all English-related fields to students in one-on-one or small group settings. I tailor my lessons to meet individual students' needs. Whether you are a high school student looking to improve your English grade or a college graduate hoping to polish your sonnet sequence, I am a versatile instructor committed to giving you the tools to read deeply and write effectively. I prefer to meet at my home in Mount Vernon, Baltimore but am willing to travel (within reason).

Background

I have over ten years of English and creative writing teaching experience. I have taught over 100 students from elite high schools, colleges, and online, including the University of Maryland and the Gilman School in Baltimore. Many of my students have gone on to become successful undergraduate and graduate students. Some have even published!

I myself hold a BA in English and a Master's in creative writing, and am the author of several books of poetry and literature in translation.

I participated in a 6-week long online poetry workshop taught by Will Schutt and offered through Hollins University. I found Will to be an encouraging and kind teacher, who nonetheless set high standards for the students. I appreciated his honesty and attention to detail, and his suggestions for revisions were always exactly right and geared toward realizing the intent and the voice of the poet (not on making the poem one that he would have written). That being said, he never insisted upon his revisions and always gave the student the option of disagreeing. Because his suggestions and comments were not based on his own personal “hunches,” but on specific reasons, I still hear his voice in my head when I revise my work. Indeed, several poems he helped me with were ultimately published or won awards.

I learned a great deal from working with Will, and I appreciated as well his ability to manage an online workshop setting – giving each student an opportunity to speak and have his or her poem studied. Subsequently, Will worked with me to edit work for a book and his assistance with that project was invaluable.
