Experienced Online English/Writing Coach and Tutor

Students from 6-18 years have benefited from my in-person and online tutoring since 2018. It’s been my joy to support them with homework, test prep, reading comprehension, grammar, ESL, and test prep including SAT. I’ve also helped those with ADHD. My love of writing began in high school as the editor of San Francisco’s Cathedral High School newspaper. It continued throughout my higher education at San Francisco State University--ultimately leading me to become a published author. I am also a professional editor and writing coach.

I am not just an English/writing tutor, but I studied leadership development, communications skills, time management, and emotional intelligence for years and I taught these and other skills to adults in the SF Bay Area for 20 years. As a private tutor, I bring all these acquired talents to my online tutoring.

What is my philosophy?

Mistakes are opportunities for learning and change, they help us, rather than hinder us. I encourage rather than discourage while seeking creative solutions to problems or issues encountered in the learning process. Excellence is accomplished by practice, hard work, cooperation, communication, support, and a bit of grace!

Personalized online tutoring can produce great results! The experience of working with a private tutor can be amazingly productive! I can help with homework, essay composition, public speaking, SAT and test preparation, ESL, ADD and ADHD issues. As a writing and English tutor, I use a combination of Google Docs and Zoom or FaceTime or just phone conversations with Google Docs. I love to be of service to parents and their children, as well as being a trusted resource for teachers and school counselors.

The Simon Family Testimonial

My two boys (ages 10 & 13) have been working with Polly twice a week via Zoom since April. Polly is caring, kind, flexible, and calls upon them to be their best selves. She has been working diligently to find gentle ways to overcome their resistance to writing. I love that she has a different approach for each student, and does research to find materials and methods to bring out their interests and motivation. We feel very lucky to have found her. She cares deeply and it shows!
