“Both Heather and Miranda [Paul] were exceptional at teaching their knowledge. They had great insight into their topics: targeted knowledge that was helpful in figuring out formats for projects, ways to revise projects, etc. I enjoyed every session with them.”

“Teaming Miranda Paul and Heather L. Montgomery together provided a great range of experience to draw upon – They complemented and enriched each other, plus it was good to get opinions from two different perspectives.”

“Miranda Paul’s feedback in the one-on-one sessions was incredibly valuable. Her comments helped me make a leap forward, and I am super jazzed about my new revision.”

“Miranda Paul was exceptional in her ability to not only point out flaws, but to help steer a writer toward re-envisioning a better product.”

Visiting Our Campus

Our campus (The Barn at Boyds Mills) is tucked away in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  It's a few hours from both New York City and Philadelphia, but worlds away from everyday life.
