Flashbang! provides tutoring services for students looking for one-on-one attention. We can help with: academic writing, creative writing, MLA-style research papers, close reading literary or nonfiction texts, SAT verbal and writing skills, and college entrance essays. If it's about words, we can help.

College Essays  It's that time of the year again. Prospective college students are touring campuses, browsing brochures, and starting to wonder how the heck they will write all those application essays. If you are stuck or overwhelmed by the process, give us a holler. We have read many a college essay and are more than happy to help you polish them up--or start from scratch with you. 

Tutoring is handled by Sarah, a certified teacher with background teaching students in special education through honors level courses. The content of each tutoring session will be codetermined by the student, the parent, and Sarah, ensuring the tutee gets just what he or she needs out of each session. If you live in the North Hills area, Sarah will come to you. Or, if you prefer, sessions can take place in a mutually agreed upon public place like a local library or coffee shop. Tutoring is $60/hour and payable at the beginning of each session.
