Perfect Academic Essay Writing, Thesis Development and Editing by PhD student in the Arts and Humanities (UofT)

Methodology

My teaching style is one that focuses on the fundamentals of good academic writing! I will provide insightful tools that are designed to help you build and perfect your writing style, grammar and also build up your vocabulary. These tools will not only give you a great foundation to build on, but will give you the confidence to express yourself artfully and completely! Writing is a journey, one that never stops, so let me help you on it!

Background

I am a PhD student at the NMC department at the University of Toronto. I have two prior Master Degrees from Tel Aviv University and McGill University. I have spent 10 years writing and editing in Academia. I will teach very practical and applicable techniques that will not only improve your writing style, grammar and build your vocabulary but also address important topics like thesis development, and introduce you to different academic styles of writing.
