In addition to her creative and corporate work, CJ McGillivray is a professional academic writing tutor for high school, college and university students. She has two years of experience working as a college tutor and has five years of experience as a professional copywriter, creating marketing content, writing press releases and editing proposals.

To book an online tutoring session, please leave your contact information or connect with CJ McGillivray directly through SuperProf. She is currently available for individual online bookings. Her teaching methodology is to coach and empower students to find solutions and clarify their own writing. Her mandate as a tutor is to never correct or edit writing based on her own preferences and ideas. She instead works to support students in elevating their own writing, giving them agency and validation.


CJ is incredibly intuitive. She can pick up just through conversation what parts are making sense to you and which aren’t. Then she weaves the concepts perfectly into your understanding and makes it intuitive for you too. She’s also just very kind and welcoming, making the whole process a lot more vibrant and honestly faster. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone and I have.

CJ is an amazing teacher! I worked with CJ and she trained me on many different tasks in the workplace. She is very attentive, detailed, and supportive with her training process. She always provides all of the resources needed to succeed and is very open to questions and continued support. I have left every one of her training sessions feeling much more confident and prepared.

I had the pleasure to receive training from CJ as a co-op student at Ashton Education. Her patience and passion for teaching made a difference in my term. She created a supportive work environment. CJ was always willing to listen to other people ideas and went above and beyond supporting her coworkers. I believe that all of these qualities will make her a great teacher.
