College Admissions Essay Writing Workshop: My name is Nancy Goldberg and I will be offering a workshop in the fall to help seniors write their admissions essay for college applications. I have been a Waldorf parent for ten years, and I have completed Foundation Studies. I was a college English instructor and a high school English teacher for a number of years. Most recently, I have worked as a private tutor for high school students. In my capacities as an English teacher and as a private tutor, I have taught students how to write their admissions essays. I taught this workshop last year for Merriconeag seniors and references from families who have taken this workshop, as well as from families whose seniors I have tutored privately, are available upon request.
Summer Piano Lessons: Hi, I'm teaching piano this summer at my home studio in Freeport for the months of June and July. I'll teach any age or experience level from young beginners to adults. Currently I have room for up to 6 more students. I plan to teach in the fall but may have more limited time due to attending senior year at USM. Let me know if you have questions and/or are interested! Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (207) 837-0714. Thanks! ~Will Bristol (High-school and grade-school alumnus) (06/05)
