About the lesson

In essays, composition and research papers (academic papers) for instance, I take time to critically read through students' and busy professionals' papers to discern what it is exactly that they were trying to say in writing (argument). I check to see if they could have expressed their ideas better and if they have provided evidence to support their arguments. I look for strong openings that would draw readers in, and critically analyze the transitions between the first paragraph all the way to the end. I go over the papers with the students and give them pointers on what could be improved upon- I tend to ask them what it is exactly that they were struggling with. We then go through the entire paper paragraph by paragraph, checking not only for argumentation and evidence but for spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc. Together, we revise and if necessary rewrite the entire paper, cutting out what is unnecessary and focusing on making the paper both persuasive and visual through examples (anecdotal evidence, for example) and solid points. I focus on using the active voice versus the passive voice and action words that will maintain the readers' interest and persuade him or her.

About Jean

I am an effective writer, journalist and communications professional with 20 years of experience and a record of producing positive results. Graduate of Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, USA with a Master's degree in Writing Studies (May 2007) and a Bachelor's degree in Broadcasting, Telecommunications and Mass Media with a minor concentration in Journalism from Temple University (also in Philadelphia) in August 2002.


My strong points include writing articles (for the Web, magazines, newspapers and social media), editorials, speeches, feature articles, opinion articles, press releases, and fiction (novels and scripts).

I have worked for a total of ten years- six years as a Writing and English Tutor and Teaching Assistant within University settings and for four years as an Online Editor and Proofreader helping busy professionals in the medical and legal fields with their papers. I have successfully transformed C- and D papers into A- and A+ papers through rigorous attention to detail, grammar, punctuation, argumentation, clarity of expression, sentence structure and organization of ideas. I also speak French and can translate text from French to English. I do very well in one-on-one tutoring sessions, but I strongly prefer proofreading, editing and tutoring online rather than in person due to my schedule.
