Jasper Nighthawk – Writing Tutor

Writing well is key to success in school and beyond, yet many students never receive enough individualized attention to take their ability to the next level. That’s why I love working with students at all levels as we build the skills, confidence, and practice of effective communication.

Lessons Tailored to You

The main advantage to working one-on-one is the opportunity that I can give you what you need, right when you need it. We’ll set goals and timelines—and then together we will make sure that we accomplish them. But we’ll also go at a pace that works for you, and when something is giving you extra trouble, that’s when you’ll be most supported.

The Mental Side of Writing

Every writer has to deal with the anxieties of writing, from imposter syndrome and writer’s block to procrastination and fear of revision. Learning to navigate around these roadblocks is at least as important as learning comma rules and essay archetypes. We will work to identify what is standing in your way, and I will help you find strategies to get through them. Today—and for the rest of your life as a writer.

Growing Voice and Confidence

There is no greater satisfaction for me as a tutor than watching one of my students realize how much they have to say and how good they are at saying it. I strongly believe that everyone has areas where they are an expert. Our challenge is to cultivate these gifts and help them bloom.

Why Me?

I am a professional writer, editor, and writing teacher with seven years of experience as a writing tutor for a high-end tutoring company. I hold an AB in Slavic Languages and Literature from Harvard College and an MFA in Creative Writing from Antioch University. For my day job, I serve as the University Storyteller for Antioch University.

“Jasper has been so encouraging, creative, and insightful. I have been particularly appreciative of the apparent ease with which he is able to engage with Margaret on small details that challenge her (e.g., counting syllables, comma placement) as well as big-picture ideas. We are very appreciative!” – Hannah B.

“Hi Jasper, I just wanted to say thanks for your help throughout this process. I feel like the final draft of the statement of purpose was very strong, and I cannot thank you enough for all your help and guidance on it. I have submitted my application, and will let you know in the future (hopefully sometime in March) how it all turns out!” – Grant F.

“Jasper was outstanding. There was a great connection between them, and he and Emma had a great rapport. We are so appreciative of his assistance.” – Clare D.
