Elizabeth England tutors students on all written components of both high school and college applications, from short-answer questions to the personal statement to the Common Application Essay. With a BA from Wesleyan University in Humanities and an MA from City College of New York in English/Creative Writing, Elizabeth has been teaching fiction, creative non-fiction and personal essay writing to children and adults for nearly 20 years. Additionally, Elizabeth worked as a publicist so she adds a bit of marketing savvy when helping students write that honest, yet persuasive essay.
Recently, she has begun tutoring middle schoolers on their writing skills in anticipation of the more muscular demands of high school papers and on-the-spot writing assignments.
A recipient of a 1998 New York Foundation of the Arts Fiction Fellowship, Elizabeth’s stories have appeared in the Nebraska Review, North Atlantic Review, Berkshire Review and the Connecticut Review. She won Ohio State University’s The Journal’s short story contest in 2007 as well as Inkwell Magazine’s 2001short fiction competition where the winning story was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Currently, Elizabeth has a piece in Fiction Now and is a contributing editor to Epiphany magazine. She is represented by a top NYC literary agent and is hard at work on a male mid-life crisis novel. In her free time, she teaches spinning, hangs out with her husband and kids, reads books and sees as many movies as she can!
