Series Details


Welcome to the SHW Writing Competition. Me and a few other tutors hosted a similar series last summer, and after seeing how much fun that was, I’ve decided to keep it going! So, this summer, we’re back with another Writing Competition, with a few tweaks and changes. If you were a part of the competition last year, welcome back! I’m excited to see the stories you all come up with! This series is pretty self-explanatory, but basically, in this competition, all participants will write a short story regarding any topic and submit it using a Google Form. Yep, that's simple. There are, however, some rules to help keep things in check which we'll discuss in the orientation session.

*Thank you so much for all the judge applications! We now have enough for this series!*


There are only two sessions in this series, the orientation session and the awards ceremony. Both are pretty important so I hope you're able to attend. If not, feel free to message me with a time better fit for you.


July 10 - July 26

I’m a junior from Florida, mainly tutoring in Chemistry and SAT prep. I hope to help others achieve their target scores on standardized tests and to develop a love for the process of learning. I'm also happy to offer sessions for learners in other classes I've taken, including economics and psychology. I like reading, writing, art and am very passionate about the sciences.
