All writing coaching sessions must be paid for in advance.
WriteBoston coaches are accessible as teachers learn. While teachers are planning and implementing, they continually check back with their coach for trouble-shooting and adjustments. Few professional development models offer this ongoing follow-up service.

The centerpiece of the WriteBoston model is school-based coaching. Writing coaches serve as the link between teachers, curricula, and the series of authentic writing activities that WriteBoston brings to schools. The coaches – seasoned instructors with years of classroom experience and professional writing backgrounds – provide tailored support to teachers from all disciplines in every aspect of the writing process.Sustained, side-by-side coaching results in powerful, lasting adult learning. When surveyed, 84% of teachers called their WriteBoston coaching experience “significantly more valuable” or “more valuable” compared to other professional development experiences they had participated in during the year. With coach support, teachers build their toolbox of writing strategies, integrate the writing process into their daily instruction, grow their confidence in using writing as a vehicle for student learning, and embed literacy practices that align with instructional goals.Writing coaches work with teachers – both new and experienced – as well as administrators (principals, department heads, etc.) to infuse the school with instructional resources and professional development opportunities and to encourage student participation in writing.WriteBoston coaches train teachers not only in the “what” but the “how” of teaching writing. WriteBoston coaches provide materials and resources as well as the methods of delivery and instruction. Coaches examine what teachers do, encourage and refine what works, and identify and improve areas of weakness.WriteBoston coaches tailor their coaching to the school, the course, the teacher, the students, the individual set of needs. Teachers note the flexibility of the WriteBoston approach. Coaches do not insist on one methodology. Rather than provide expertise using a top-down model, WriteBoston coaches play a supporting role. Coaches help teachers do their job, and do it better. Hello & Welcome
Who am I?
I am Andrea Clinton, writing coach among several other items. I have 13 years of experience teaching English and more than 14 years of experience as a writing coaching and tutor. I not only help clients with their present project, but I instruct, so that they acquire the knowledge needed to furnish topnotch documents and manuscripts."Susan Snowden has helped me improve my writing in many ways. As a writing coach, she is very professional. I e-mail my pieces to her in advance, and when I arrive she's prepared to discuss word choice, dialogue, structure, and characterization. Not only does she point out my mistakes (gently!), she explains them to me so that I learn from them.Personal Story
You know, when word processors replaced typewriters, guess I'm telling my age, I didn't write for a while. I couldn't afford a word processor. I picked up my pen again and began writing the old fashion way, on paper, in my notebook. After writing in notebooks for a while, I finally gained access to a computer. But something about that transition made me develop low self-esteem regarding my writing. Being a writer at heart, I knew what I needed, a writing coach. The writing coach reminded me of many things I'd forgotten while writing in my notebook. He encouraged me to try using new devices and helped me work through the best devices to use per genre, etc., he also taught me many other writing tips and more key items I didn't know, which made it less expensive for me when I handed my manuscript over to an editor. That was 20 years ago and now, I am a writing coach. The potential of grant funding can be very exciting, but researching and writing a grant proposal can be a confusing process.
