What Others Say

An Absolute Treat to Work With

“I had the pleasure of working with Kate Findley during her time as a student at USC, and she’s kept me posted, at my request, about her work and growth since graduation. I’ve always been nothing but impressed by her drive, her professionalism, her terrific instincts, and her bountiful, joyful creativity. It’s an absolute treat to work with Kate, and she is reliably cheerful and upbeat and savvy about the written word and its usefulness and power. I recommend her highly!”

A Sharp Mind and Keen Eye

“In 20 years of teaching writing, Kate Findley remains one of my best graduate students, simply because she worked so hard (yet with ease), she was inspired and inspiring to writing students toiling all around her in the program. She was a pleasure to be around. I strongly recommend Ms. Findley’s sharp eye and keen mind for all things writerly.”

Impeccable Attention to Detail

“Kate is a great communicator, both verbally and in writing. Her response time is excellent and work product is invariably timely and meticulous.

Kate has impeccable attention to detail. Her comments and recommendations on our students’ timed essays are very specific and thorough and have proven to be an invaluable tool to our inspiring writers as well as to their standardized test prep tutors. In her direct one-on-one work with our students, Kate demonstrates a keen eye and a practiced hand in providing individualized coaching to help our students hone their personal voice, develop their analytical skills, improve their vocabulary and grammar, take their self-editing abilities to the next level, and ultimately to become the most fluid and powerful writers they can be.”
