For the past ten years, when not teaching high school or college, I have offered private lessons. Currently, due to my research and writing schedule, my offerings are limited to packages of reading and writing lessons and academic consultations via Skype. I occasionally take clients who are struggling greatly academically and interpersonally in their school environment.


“I wanted to thank you for last Thursday. My daughter was just beaming and was a chatterbox the whole way home. Thank you so much for your encouragement. I haven’t seen her like that in such a long time. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“…Erin understands how to create mastery of a subject. She was able to get my son to wherever he wanted to go. She is welcoming, kind and patient.  I highly trust and recommend her services…”

“…Erin’s pedagogical skills are remarkable. She is aware of what students can and can’t do and she pushes enough to keep it challenging, but not overwhelming…”

“…She is an amazing person overall who never hesitates to give her clients the best help she possibly can in any way it is needed…”

“It would be difficult for me to overstate the positive impact Erin has had on our son. His academic skills and aptitude have definitely improved, but the most significant change we have seen is in his confidence and self-concept. Erin saw our son’s true potential and gave him tools to help him see it for himself. Once he gained this perspective on his own brilliance and capacity, the transformation was astonishing. In the years prior to working with Erin, we had switched our son from public to private school, and finally pulled him out altogether to home school, due to his struggles. Within a few months of beginning to work regularly with Erin, he was back in public school and performing at the top of his class academically. What is even more important to me as his parent is the way he feels about himself as a student, a learner, and a member of an educational community. We are forever grateful to Erin for the gift she has been to our whole family!”
