Homework Offered
PARENTAL DISCRETION: ~ Homework is readily available for all of my lessons. ~ Learners are encouraged to independently complete any questions not completed during the live ZOOM session. ~ Live feedback is very valuable. Therefore, feedback for completed homework can be provided in the forthcoming session.
Assessments Offered
Informal and Formal: ~ I use casual, informal assessments during the 45-minute session. Plus, the reading comprehension questions found in the text provide a traditional and more formal approach to assessing my learners. I balance the two formats to determine the needs of the learner.
Grades Offered
Learners should have easy access to digital or tangible note paper.

However, learners will need their own novels for any sessions that specifically cover novel studies.
