“Mr. Crum offered me crucial support in reading and writing, and gave me hope to succeed in English during the most frustrating period of my life.”
—P. Shen, ESL student who under our tutelage went from getting D’s on papers to getting A’s
“Dana put tremendous energy and care into working with our students. He was a creative and devoted teacher who spent considerable time meeting with students to give them individual assistance. It is clear that he cares deeply about teaching and learning.”
—Monika Giacoppe, Associate Professor at Ramapo College of New Jersey
“Dana Crum was my colleague at Ramapo College of New Jersey for a year. Because we taught a similar course—College English, a required General Education course—we shared curriculum ideas and syllabi. I can say without reservation that I developed a great deal of respect for Mr. Crum's sensitivity towards students and his professionalism as a teacher of writing.”
—Peter Scheckner, Professor of Literature at Ramapo College

Prose Wizard’s primary ESL tutor, Dana Crum, has a history of success. Under his tutelage an ESL student from China went from getting D’s on papers to getting A’s. Crum is a Princeton alum with 18 years of experience as a teacher and tutor of English, ESL and creative writing. Horace Mann, Prep for Prep, Ramapo College of New Jersey, the Art Academy of Cincinnati and Virginia Commonwealth University are some of the institutions where he has taught. And he tutors middle-school, high-school, college and graduate students as well as working professionals.
All of our tutors are native speakers of English with substantial teaching experience. They tailor their lessons to fit your needs, interests and learning style. With their guidance, you will improve your speaking, listening, reading and writing. You will not only become fluent but also develop confidence and grow comfortable speaking in public. Your confidence will stem, in part, from knowing that your foreign accent has been replaced by an American accent.
Lessons are conducted in person, or online via Skype and similar applications.
