Words, Words, and More Words

ACTs, SATs and Writing!

When I started Step Write Up in 2005, it was to help students become better writers. Then parents asked me to tutor their kids for the ACT and SAT "verbal" sections and I quickly realized that offering tutoring for these tests was a natural progression.

My Pledge to My Students

As an All Things Verbal tutor for the ACT, SAT, AP English Language and Literature, AP US History, ISEE and SSAT, I prepare students for these crucial tests in a 1-on-1 setting. As a writing coach, I don't write papers, but I will help plan them and guide a rewrite if it is needed. Work with me and you will learn skills that will serve you throughout your life.

I taught young journalists for 30 years and now I do the same for middle school and high school students.

I promise you this: If you put in the work, you will see the results. Your standardized test scores will improve, your grades will improve, and you will feel more confident about putting your well-organized thoughts down on paper.
