about me

With more than two decades of experience as a writing instructor and editor under his belt, in college-based and online settings, Professor Tim’m West wanted to offer an individualized writing consultation service not available with current online writing centers or one-time consultations at Writing Centers. 

MyWritingProfessor.com offers a personal touch you can afford. Educated at Duke University, The New School for Social Research, and Stanford University, Tim’m has a long history of successful writing consultation in academic settings, specifically in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Because his professional experiences have always paralleled work in the non-profit sector, he also has a broad range of experiences in the areas of non-profit program development, college admissions, grant writing, curriculum development, and manuscript editing. Additionally, he has been both a copy and content editor for several creative manuscripts– helping writers not only refine their projects grammatically, but conceptualize them more clearly. From his work as co-professor of Writing Pedagogy and consultant at the Eugene Lang College Writing Center, to faculty positions in Northern California, or work as Adjunct Professor in English, Humanities, and Philosophy at Houston Community College, Tim’m’s approach to writing is about meeting clients where they are, finding realistic ways to improve the quality of writing given varied skill sets, and maximizing client potential. His objective is not simply to help you through a single assignment or project, but leave you with something that will enable your independence as a student, writer, or professional.
